As prospective parents, we can sometimes allow our hearts to rule our heads why buying for baby. But without some dependable advice, it's possible to end up at the wrong end of a bad deal when it comes to buying baby products: at best you might be wasting your money, at worst endangering your baby's health and safety.
Why not leave the guesswork and guilt-trips at home and rely on 'the' buying guide for parents? Now in its eleventh edition, the CHOICE Guide to Baby Products reports on the results of tests and surveys carried out for CHOICE by the team of professionals dedicated to independent testing.
Tests reported on in this edition include:
* Baby carriers
* Jogger strollers
* Four-wheel layback strollers [new]
* Double strollers [new]
* Toddler seats for prams/strollers [new]
* Baby monitors
* Portable cots
* Safety gates
* Dummies [new]
The book also provides general buying advice on bathing and changing accessories, clothing and nappies, bedding, feeding, toys and other play equipment, with important safety hints and 'what to look for' checklists. And if that imminent mountain of dirty washing is looking a little daunting, fear not: laundry care, including washing machines and dyers, is also covered! There's information about safety in and around the house, and advice on some of the other issues confronting new parents, such as postnatal depression, childcare, SIDS, and the latest on childhood immunisation.
