The Baby Show

I adore my gorgeous little boy but it is lovely to have a bit of time sometimes just me and the bloke.  Ironically we decided to spend a day away together visiting The Baby Show at Earl's Court.  We had a lovely day exploring the stands as expectant parents and making the most of some fantastic offers from some of the companies.

We bought some lovely clothes for Dylan and all sorts of gorgeous bits for little Mr Squish.  We also spent time checking out the double pushchair options ready for next year.

The stall we looked for first was the last one we found and that was the lovely
Tots Bots.  We love our reusable nappies and after meeting the team in February it was lovely to catch up and pick up the new Super Pooper nappy for the little dude.  They even had a fluffy post box which was worthy of a photo!

We bought some more gorgeous bits from Me and I, even after having a party to show off their new range earlier in the week.  We bought a lovely T-shirt for Dylan and a gorgeous romper for Squish so they will both be looking very colourful and cute!

We went to visit the Ergo Pouch guys as we loved our Bamboo sheet sleeping bag and wanted to get one of the swaddle sleeping bags ready for our new arrival, and came away with two, so we are nice and ready for the first few months!  Dylan had to go into his big cot much earlier than we planned as his startle reflex meant he woke himself up a lot in the night bashing his hands on the side of the crib.  We are hoping that these gorgeous swaddles will mean Squish can stay little for longer as we can keep his arms snuggled up with him.  They also have poppers so they can be used with arms out - perfect if we get another little thumb sucker!

We checked out plenty of buggies from Cosatto's gorgeous colourful collection, Stokke's amazing warm winter pack and the new to the UK range from Joovy.  Trying to persuade the bloke that the children should share a room so we can have a whole room for the pushchairs doesn't seem to be going too well!

We met the lovely people at Shnuggle who have created a gorgeous moses basket that stays quiet even with a wriggler and we now have the perfect sleeping place for our precious newborn when he decides to turn up.  I got asked frequently if we were buying our last minute bits before an imminent arrival so it is safe to say the bump is looking round and large even with nearly four months left until d-day!

We had a fab day out made even better by seeing the amazing Muse in the evening followed by a night away in a hotel.  I am looking forward to the February Baby Show although as it is only a couple of days after my due date I can't guarantee we will be there!


 Did you go to the baby show?  Pick up any fantastic bargains?
