Whether you have a new baby, a toddler or an older child, there always seems like there is so much stuff to buy. How do you choose one that's safe and right for you and your youngster? 

Not all infant and nursery products sold in Australia are safe and every year many children in Australia require hospital treatment for injuries associated with infant and nursery products.

Most manufacturers aim and work towards providing a safe product for the consumer, but from time to time they don't always meet the safety standards (either mandatory or voluntary) that are in place.

We test baby products regularly to the relevant Australian or International standard and inform consumers on which products pass the requirements and are recommended, have minor failures and are worth considering or have major failures and are not recommended.

We've put together this guide to help you with your buying decisions. It focuses on features, safety and in some cases ease of use. Use it to help yourself make an informed buying decision that will be right for you and your baby.
