We know first-hand how overwhelming it can be to choose the best products for your baby. Which is why the 2018 Mother & Baby awards seek to make it easier, helping Aussie mums find the best buys for their bubs.
Now in their seventh year, the awards highlight the best products in the baby care industry, from nappies and wipes, to big ticket items such as cots, cars and family holidays.
The Mother & Baby award rosette signals that a product has been exhaustively tried, tested and voted the best by real mums, and given the tick of approval by a panel of experts.
Scroll through the gallery to check out the winners of the best family car category.
Ford Escape, $29,990
This compact SUV is perfect for commuting around town with a young family and also heading out to explore the countryside. As well interior comfort, safety features such as rear collision sensing and blind-spot alerts offer peace of mind with precious cargo on board.
Kia Carnival, from $42,490
It's Australia's favourite people-mover for a reason. The Carnival has had some fresh updates in 2018, too, with better smart technology like its navigation, and it's retained its famous three rows of seating so there's room to expand the family.
Nissan X-Trail, from $32,000
The sleek medium-size SUV matches style with safety, with rear-view camera, intelligent emergency breaking and more.
