    As far as I am aware the baby bonus hasn't changed. Your family income can't be more than $75k in the 6 month period immediately after your baby is born.

    It has been that way since Jan last year.

    yep basically what PP have said. Personally I think the installment payment is stupid it ends up being more wasteful IMO
