Benefits of Breastfeeding
- The perfect food: Breast milk is natural and full of nutrients and antibodies that help protect your baby from infections and allergies.
- Easy to digest: Breast milk rarely causes constipation and includes over 100 nutrients.
- Promotes normal weight gain: Breast milk is naturally formulated for a baby’s diet and even protects against future obesity.
- Burns more calories a day: Once your milk supply is built up, you are burning between 200-500 calories a day.
- Reduces stress levels: Breastfeeding can reduce stress levels and help you feel happier.
- Fewer sick days: Nursing mums take less days off because their babies receive valuable immunities.

Choosing the Best Wheels
Suitable from birth to approximately 18kg, flat fold strollers are both convenient and comfortable. Generally these strollers will include a multi-recline backrest, lockable swivel wheels along with many other standard features and benefits.
Suitable from birth up to 20kg, travel systems include a removable car seat capsule and a premium stroller. Travel systems enable you to take an infant capsule from your home to the car and back to your stroller without disturbing your baby.
They are portable and convenient, featuring lightweight and compact frames for easy moving and storage.
3-Wheel Sport Strollers
Suitable from birth to 18kg, 3-wheel strollers are ideal for active parents. The front wheel swivels for easy steering on smooth surfaces, while the oversized back wheels are designed for effortless travel over rough terrain.
Twin strollers are available in tandem or side-by-side format which fit through standard doorways and have lockable swivel wheels for maneuverability.
Consider the lifestyle of your family. Whether it’s city life or exploring rough terrain, choose a stroller designed to suit your needs.
Consider where you will be storing your stroller. If you travel mostly by car, make sure your folded stroller fits in the boot.

As with any rules, there are exceptions you should think about when selecting a child restraint. It’s important to remember that whilst the current laws in some states are age-based you should always consider the height and weight of your child when purchasing your restraint. If your child is taller or heavier than the recommendation for the product you should consider a restraint suitable for the next stage. See our friendly staff in store if you have any questions.
Ensure a Safe Fit
It is recommended that you have your infant restraint fiited before the birth of your child.
Always have an authorised fitting station fit or check the restraint for you. To find the location of your nearest authorised fitting station contact your state motor authority
