The Baby Show

What better way to spend a Sunday then in a large NEC (Birmingham to be precise) full of air con and every essential baby item that you need right from pregnancy to the toddler years. Add a tweet up with some other bloggers and you have the perfect day out at The Baby Show.

We had Vic stay along with the gorgeous Mr A the night before so our Saturday was filled a BBQ & late night trampolining.

As soon as we entered The Baby Show (after a much needed subway lunch) we bumped into Claire & Luschka . We then met up with Jay who was with little small , who really does have the most gorgeous big brown eyes. We then met BumblingTweets & little Moo and went for drinks & muffins.

Some of the mumpreneurs/companies who we've come to know as friends were also at The Baby Show exhibitioning.

We met Cara from Snoozeshade who I know must of been busy for the whole weekend because the snoozeshade is a must have for every mother to be/parents of young children , I have one myself and you can see my review here.

We met Vicky from Cosatto who tweets you can see , after a few minutes on the stand I fell in love with prams - so cute with vibrant colours , I love prams that make you stand out from the crowd.

I was rather excited to see Annabel Karmel on her stand , so excited that I wondered over without telling anyone where I was going - but they soon found me!
We introduced ourselves and she took the time to talk to us , such a lovely woman. She even signed her for Oli and gave him a pack of fruit crisp which made a rather hot & fed up little boy rather happy.

Fisher Price had some grown up size versions of there baby toys made , Me & Vic tried out the baby bouncer - it actually vibrated too!

It was a great day and we got plenty of freebies - we've somehow ended up with enough fairy to do several months washing.

I cant recommend to you enough if your pregnant or a new parent how useful The Baby Show can be for you. There's plenty of bargains to be had as well stalls about cloth nappies , those baby essentials and even midwives on hand for any advice you may need.
