Our little owls have been busy filling up our trophy case! In all reality, these awards mean so much more to us than just a pat on the back. If one of these awards helps us to educate just one family about accidental suffocation and measures to take to avoid that tragedy, that’s more of an accomplishment than the award itself. Raising awareness about safe sleep is our priority, these awards are just a means to reach that goal. That being said, you can take a look at the awards we’ve won below.

The Bump Best of Baby Tech: Baby Safety & Audience Pick
The Bump started a new competition this year to find the Best of Baby Tech. Each product is reviewed by a panel of judges, but only three make it to the finalist round in each category.
