When it comes to raising babies, what tech gadgets should parents turn to? The Bump, a pregnancy and parenting resource, together with Living in Digital Times, producers of the Baby Tech Summit at CES 2016 in Las Vegas, last week announced the winners of The Bump Best of Baby Tech Awards at CES.

The winners, who have excelled in tech innovation, design and utility in the fertility, pregnancy and baby product space, were recognised at The Bump Best of Baby Tech Awards ceremony hosted by The Bump site director, Julia Wang, and one of the judges, founder and CEO of Zuckerberg Media and New York Times bestselling author, Randi Zuckerberg.

In addition to being named The Bump Best of Baby Tech Award Winner, each winner will receive a one-year distribution contract with Best Babie, the largest national distributor in the baby, children and toy market, allowing their product to be distributed in top US baby retailers, electronic retailers and/or online e-tailers.

“According to a survey of more than 9,000 moms on The Bump, 78 percent say that technology helps make parenting easier,” said Julia Wang, site director of The Bump. “The Bump is excited to help make the lives of these moms, and all parents, easier by introducing them to transformative technologies and new products.”

“We all know how important technology is to our lives and now it’s being used to make parenting much easier,” said Jill Gilbert, producer of the Baby Tech Summit. “The Bump Best of Baby Tech Awards winners underscore that technology is redefining everything from conception to how we care for and raise babies.”

Results were based on a compilation of online votes, in-person votes at CES and expert judges.
