SEATTLE, Aug. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Diono (https://us.diono.com/), the Pacific Northwest’s award winning designer and manufacturer of car seats and strollers for babies, and We Made Me (https://www.wemademe.com/), home of award winning baby slings, baby wraps and baby carriers, today announced that the brands have won a combined eight platinum awards, four gold awards and three silver awards in the 2018 Loved By Parents Awards in categories including Best Baby Carrier, Best Innovative Stroller, Best Stroller and Best Innovative Car Seat.
Now in its eighth year, the Loved by Parents Awards recognize the best juvenile products which are tested and voted on by parents, and is one of the most trusted parenting awards worldwide. In a survey conducted, 80% of parents said they were more likely to buy a product if it had won a Loved by Parents award.
Tim Maule, CEO at Diono, said, “The Diono and We Made Me teams are proud of the awards we’ve won at this year’s Loved By Parents Awards and the work we’ve put into creating these juvenile products to benefit and improve both parents’ and children’s lives. Diono’s recent brand refresh, along with the brand’s newest board members and executives, has created a stir in the juvenile product industry and cleared a path for Diono to become a true thought leader in the juvenile industry for both design and innovation. This new spirit and direction has resulted in multiple new, award-winning products from Diono and we look forward to continuing on this path in creating products for a new generation of parents.”
Nigel Plested, Diono’s Chief Product & Brand Officer, shared his thoughts on the development and creation of these new, award-winning products and Diono’s plans to continue to push the envelope in the juvenile product space.
“The Diono brand has come a long way in the almost 20 years since it was founded, but one thing has remained a consistent priority for the brand, safety. We continue to use our original, innovative and safe designs but continuously upgrade them to fit seamlessly into families’ current needs. We take inspiration from our users and the current design space to create products that will benefit families for years to come. With the brand’s new direction and a strong team of designers, engineers, etc., we look forward to the countless new products Diono will create as we continue to lead and improve the juvenile product industry.”

About We Made Me:
Established in 2005, and born in Brighton, England, we started out with a simple little product called theBabaSling. It was an unknown, a leap of faith and an instinctive, versatile and easy way to wear as a new parent. The truth is it resonated with a multitude of parents the world around, and in turn it created a community, a perspective, and shaped a brand, which inturn became We Made Me – an original babywearing brand for contemporary parents.
Today, we have tailored a thoughtful range of babywearing garments, slings and accessories, designed to provide the best experiences in fit, comfort, & support. Whilst shaping, fitting and refining our ideas with you, we recognised that each and every parent, (and every baby), is different, and like all things in life, variety is key. So, we have shaped a brand, which celebrates different ways to wear, so that with We Made Me you can wear your way…each and every day.
