GB QBit+

We know first-hand how overwhelming it can be to choose the best products for your baby. Which is why the 2017 Mother & Baby awards, sponsored by Babies"R"Us, seek to make it easier, helping Aussie mums find the best buys for their bubs.

Now in their sixth 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 in the best stroller under $500 category.
