I attended The Baby Show over the weekend! I thought i'd do a blog post about the event and let you know what I thought.

The Baby Show comes to Birmingham once a year and London a couple of times a year. With us living in Birmingham it was so easy to get to the event. I was kindly gifted tickets but they are available to buy on The Baby Show website or you can buy on the door.

It's good to have any idea of what your looking for as it can be quite over whelming. The exhibition hall is jam packed with stalls and they are all full of baby things from bibs, travel systems, carseats, clothing, bags, nappies and much much more...

We are only 16 weeks pregnant so we were going to browse different brands and products rather than actually buying anything on the day. I knew we wanted to compare and check out prams and travel systems and I found the baby show made this super easy as they had hundreds of prams all in one room. Madebymums had actually installed a track where you could test drive the prams too which was such a good idea! We're looking for a sturdy but lightweight travel system as we live in an apartment building with no lift. I like a chrome chassis and don't mind to much about the colour but right now we don't know the sex of the baby so have been looking at Black or Grey. The show was really good and we tested lots of prams and we got to put them up and down and see how easy they are to assemble etc.

We did buy a few bibs from a brand called Funky Giraffe Bibs and they had so many gorgeous patterns and colours to choose from! These were an absolute bargain at the show aswell!

I was contacted by a lovely brand MAM who were actually giving out free bottles at the show aswell as selling lots of fab products! I headed over to the stall as was shown their 6 in 1 electric steriliser. It is also a bottle and food warmer and also comes with a microwave steriliser. I will be featuring this in a review on my blog once baby is here and i've used it.

As well as checking out lots of fab new brands it was good to check out some that I've already heard of, there was so many amazing brands that were giving away lots of samples and goodies. We've ended up with so many samples of nappies, wipes and creams etc.

We also took part in the Red Cross Baby First Aid course which was really informative and I feel more confident I would know what to do if a baby was choking, burned or swallowed something poisonous.

The next show will be in London in October, tickets will be available closer to the date.

We had an amazing time at the show and would recommend it. If your still early in your pregnancy it might still benefit you to go and check out the brands and compare different products. We have a good idea on the travel system we want to get and have found lots of amazing brands via The Baby Show and although we didn't buy much had a great time. If we were further along in our pregnancy we would have bought a lot more stuff.  It's good to research before you go because we found some prices weren't that great and we found some products online for a lot less.

If any baby brands want to get in touch feel free! My email is amypyt@hotmail.co.uk
