I was amazed at how many brands were there with cool new products. Rosey Jennifer Designs featured the most beautiful clocks and bits for children. Their lampshades were utterly amazing, and I wish we had purchased one for Indiana's room (however it was the price that stopped us, as we're trying to stop spending at the moment haha). This was the same for the prints and canvas at Little Sweet Designs, I wish I could have got them all!
One stall that stopped us in our tracks and got us excited was Spring Nutrition. As you probably know we haven't started weaning Indiana yet, and our plan is to do baby led weaning. The ladies at Spring Nutrition were about just that, perfect! One of the main ladies was Julie Clark, who was there selling her brand new baby led weaning, step by step book. We were so happy we came across them as it's exactly what we needed, and the goody bag came with a doidy cup and a pack of rice cakes for the start of our journey too!
Bibisili Bibs. Again this links with us starting thinking about weaning Indie. We have purchased a Tommee Tippee bib but it's very stiff, and it going to be a pain to carry around on holiday especially. However these bibs are SO soft and flexible, they could be scrunched up and thrown in a bag so easily, and the designs are super cute too.
I much preferred this years show to the last one, as there was just so much more to see. Maybe that's because we have a baby now, who knows. The layout was also much better as it seemed easier to get around. However I did notice that tickets didn't include goody bags like they did last year. They had to be purchased separately, or you had to get a higher priced ticket! There was also a lot of leaflets given out, and less free samples. I remember leaving last year with samples of nappy cream and all those kind of bits, yet this year we didn't get any!
Overall though we had a great day. I love the location of this show, as because it's inside a shopping centre it's a whole day out. After we left the show we grabbed something to eat and then went shopping, my favourite thing to do haha! Parking is also free, and it's all in one place, much better than travelling around ages to find where it is! I can't wait to go to the next one and see what it's like!
Here are some more pictures from our day:
Did you go to the Baby Show this year?
