Nothing says “new parents” more than gross mispronunciations of brands the rest of us have been living with since forever. I’m no corporate shill, don’t get me wrong. You’re free to stumble through a conversation on best car seats or most innovative strollers however you want.
But I tend to want to know how I’m supposed to pronounce things. Yet with some common baby product brands, you never hear them the same way twice.
So I’ve culled through lists of the popular and/or fancy baby products that are commonly pronounced at least two different ways. I contacted corporate offices and put it all in this handy pronunciation guide.
Print it out, pass it on, or look for that one brand you have avoided saying out loud since you tore off the gift wrapping at your first baby shower (Britax, I’m looking at you!).
Got a question about a brand I missed? Leave it in comments and I’ll work on a follow-up.
Now that you can pronounce them, check out our favorite stoller brands for baby!
