There are so many nursery products on the market that expectant parents and grandparents can be left feeling overwhelmed. There are also a number of common misconceptions that new and expectant parents have about infant care products. One is that if you can buy it, it must be safe to use and the other is that all products are tested for safety before being sold in Australia.

Unfortunately neither is true, so it really pays to do your research before purchasing any products for your baby.

Always refer to reputable sources such as:
