By Hannah Fox

Having a child can be expensive, but knowing where to find the best deals on baby products can make a real difference to your baby-budget worries. Our guide can help.

Put us to the test

Our Test Labs compare features and prices on a range of products. Try Which? to unlock our reviews. You'll instantly be able to compare our test scores, so you can make sure you don't get stuck with a Don't Buy.

Having a baby is an exciting time, but money worries may creep in. We're here to help parents, grandparents and carers to save money when buying those baby essentials. In the run up to Black Friday, check out the raft of special offers and discounts we've found on pushchairs, child car seats, baby monitors and more.

We've scoured the deals on offer this month to find the lowest prices on Which? Best Buy products, or products that are only a few percentage points off being Best Buys. This means they've aced our rigorous lab tests for both safety and usability. 

However, it's advisable to read the full review before you buy, to make sure it's the best product for you – just follow the link in the model name to find out more about each item.

Best baby car seat deals

Although a car seat can seem like an expensive purchase, when you consider how many uses you will get out of it, some seats actually cost around 20p a day when you factor in four years of use.

As a car seat is such an essential safety product for babies and children, we don't advise buying one online without seeing it first. 

It’s important to be able to examine a car seat in person, where you also have the opportunity to ask questions about how best to use it, as well as have it expertly installed by someone who is specially trained. 

Some retailers will let you buy online and pick it up in store, which means you can still get it fitted into your car when you go to the shop to collect it.

We’d recommend checking our pick of the best child car seats to find out how a car seat copes in our crash tests before you spend any money. 

We crash test every car seat we review, putting each through a front and side-impact crash to find the best.

It’s easy to fit, and you can install it using the adult seat belt and Isofix, which means it stays secure in the car even when not in use. It has a nice sitting position and a large, well-padded seat, plus it doesn’t take up much room in the back of your car.

Best pushchair deals

You'll find all manner of buggies on the market these days, from city three-wheelers to sturdy all-terrain pushchairs. 

Whichever option you choose, one of the models we've named a best pushchair will make life easier, being both safe and easy to use.

We generally don’t recommend buying car seat and pushchair bundles, as it’s important to consider each purchase carefully to ensure you’re choosing the best possible products for your child.

Here are some of the best pushchair deals we've spotted – just follow the link to read our full review of each buggy.

Both our parent testers and experts were impressed with how easy it is to use this pushchair. It has a sizeable 10kg shopping basket, the seat unit can accommodate a child weighing up to 25kg, and it can be converted into a double buggy with the addition of a second seat. It's not cheap at £780, but it’s now dropped by 30% to £546 on one website as a newer version with a slightly different fabric has launched.

Best deals on baby monitors 

There's no point buying a baby monitor if it doesn't cover the whole range of your house and garden, and poor sound or picture quality can be a nightmare on mediocre models. Our baby monitor reviews separate the best from the rest. 

If you’re thinking about buying a smart baby monitor that connects to your wi-fi, it’s important to bear in mind how secure it is. 

For wi-fi baby monitors we test for any security vulnerabilities you may need to know about, such as unsecured data or weak password requirements, and whether any data could be intercepted. 

For monitors that have wi-fi, video or audio capabilities, we also check sound and picture quality, as well as range and signal strength.

Below are some good deals on baby monitors – click the links to find out whether they're suitable for you.

Wi-fi baby monitors allow you to easily see and listen to your baby via an app on your smartphone or tablet. And as they’re not reliant on a traditional signal, you can view your baby wherever you are as long as you have a decent wi-fi connection. They’re typically pricier than standard video or audio baby monitors, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find a good bargain. Our highest-scoring wi-fi baby monitor is an excellent investment and it will generally set you back £270, but we’ve found it on sale for just £130.
