    American seats and aus seats have a few differences including the top tether straps and chest clips. If a seat doesn't meet the aus/nz standards it's not legal to use here.

    Thanks for the info, I was just going by that 3-point harnesses are legal here the UK but we needed a 5-point if we wanted to be able to use it in the states and OZ so we bought a capsule that was authorized for both countries.

    If you know what you're having buy as many clothes in diff sizes as your luggage allowances will allow.
    Baby clothes are sooooo much cheaper in the US. So are bottles, other feeding things

    Definitely prams, we bought our Baby Jogger online from the US and it was significantly cheaper than here including shipping. Also clothes. I'm pretty sure most things would be cheaper there; I would definitely get an idea of the things you like here and get prices then compare them when you get there.

    There's more requirements to meet Aus standards than just a 5 point harness (ours are 6 point anyways). All US/EU child restraints are illegal in Australia.

    I would be cautious re prams too. Aside from safety aspect you're also looking at no warranty
