Mater maternity and baby care products voted 2016 best baby products

Mater’s maternity and baby care products have won four gold and silver awards in the Mother and Baby Magazine Awards 2016—the must-have guide to the best baby products.

The Mother and Baby award rosette signals that a product has been given the tick of approval from Australian mums.

Mater Baby Moisturiser was awarded gold in the Most Popular Baby Skincare category. Mater products also took out silver in three categories―Mater Nappy Balm in the Most Popular Nappy Rash product category; Mater Nappies in the Most Popular Disposable Nappy category and Mater Baby Wash in the Most Popular Baby Wash category.

Now in their fifth year, the awards highlight the best products in the baby care industry, from nappies and wipes, to big ticket items such as cots, cars and family holidays.

Products were put through their paces by parents over the past few months in three different settings: at home in real-life situations, in a retail testing environment and online. Products were assessed on quality, value for money, user-friendliness and innovation.

Mater’s maternity and baby care product range is developed by Mater midwives and mums, who worked together to develop a safe, ethical and affordable range of products backed by years of research and development. Mater's skin care is proudly Australian Made and suitable for sensitive skin types.

Mater’s Director of Brand and Marketing Projects Tania Alves said since launching in 2013 Mater Mothers’ Hospitals had brought an innovative and exceptional skin care and nappy range to parents across Australia.

“Mater maternity and baby care products are widely recognised as the best high quality, low irritant product range for babies and mothers in Australia. Recognition via the Mother and Baby Awards 2016 adds to the acknowledgement we regularly receive from Australian parents that our Mater Products continue the exceptional care we provide from our hospitals into their homes.”

In 2016 Mater maternity and baby care product range has received numerous global business awards, as well as accolades from Australian consumers through winning The Product of the Year Award 2016 (Mater Nappies in baby care category) and My Child Excellence Awards (Gold and Silver).

Director of Nursing and Midwifery—Mothers, Babies and Women’s Health Services, Maree Reynolds said she was very pleased to see Mater maternity and baby care products achieving such excellent success in the community.

“Mater Mothers’ Hospitals is dedicated to providing exceptional care to mothers and their babies in hospital as well as continuing that care into people’s homes, these products are an exciting and trustworthy way for us to do just that,” she said.

“These products are unique in the marketplace as our midwives have offered their expert opinions to ensure they are of the best quality for mothers and babies.”

Proceeds from the Mater maternity and baby care product range supports Mater Little Miracles to fund specialist life-saving care and important research projects that will give babies throughout Australia and across the globe, the best possible start in life.  

The product range includes Mater Body Balm for pregnancy, Mater Baby Wash, Mater Baby Moisturiser, Mater Nappy Balm and five sizes of Mater nappies, from Newborn First Weeks through to Toddler.

The Mater maternity and baby care product range is available at selected Woolworths Supermarkets and IGA stores in Queensland, selected pharmacies nationally and via the Mater Mothers’ online shop. For retail stockists and online ordering visit or call 1300 162 837.
