Pregnancy can be overwhelming. Being constantly bombarded with information, opinions, ideas and the most needed baby gear at every corner is completely exhausting.
If it’s your first baby how on earth are you supposed to know where to start?
The Baby Show is a great place starting point.
The Baby Show is happening in Toronto at the Enercare centre, Exhibition Place on April 2 & 3 2016.
It’s all things baby and mummy under one roof and is a fantastic place to learn about pregnancy and parenting.
All day long you’ll find experts giving talks and showing you tips and tricks to help you along in your journey. You can learn about everything from exercise during pregnancy to breastfeeding tips to baby sleep advice. Make sure to check out the speaker schedule so that you don’t miss out on some of the great experts that will be there.
I must say that my favourite part of the show is the shopping. I’ve purchased some of my most coveted baby gear at The Baby Show! Nursing covers, handmade jewellery for both mamas and babies, strollers, car seats and even art work for your nursery wall. You can find almost anything while strolling the aisles of the show.
Both my children have a beautiful framed initial hanging on their bedroom walls that we found at The Baby Show a few years ago.
On top of the opportunity to buy some of the best gear and products around there are tons of free samples to be tested. I found some of my most used bath time products via the samples that I received at the Baby Show.
Testing out products and gear is reason enough alone for me to attend. Having a baby can get expensive. You almost need a down payment to purchase some strollers. Having the opportunity to try things out; touch them, push them, lift them up makes your decision making so much easier.
I love the shopping but many, especially pregnant mothers, might just choose the pampering over the shopping. The complimentary massages might make the whole day worth it!
Stroll the aisles, check out some of the latest and greatest in baby gear and products, talk to experts and even take a moment to pamper yourself! The aisles are large enough to accommodate strollers, there are plenty of activities available to keep your little ones entertained and lots of places for you to take a break from the excitement, including the DK Rest Area and Reading nook.
Tickets are $15.00 and can be purchased online or at the door. Use my promo code NAT2016 and receive 3$ off your online tickets!
If you are pregnant, planning to get pregnant or supporting a pregnant friend The Baby Show is a must. There are way too many exciting things happening under one roof to miss out.
