It’s that time of year again!! Where you can spot all the lovely baby bumps flocking toward the far west side of NYC… New York Baby Show time!
Even though my daughter is past her infant car seat stage, I love to browse each booth so that I can share all the new and exciting products available for parents and children. The NY Baby show offers two days of educational seminars, balloons and face painting for the kids, and giveaways and product testing from major brands.
Also this year, Momtrends returned with their awesome Momtrends Lounge, where fellow bloggers were able to relax, regroup, and even take advantage of childcare.
Some of my top favorites from the show this year are as follows…
GB Pockit Stroller
When thinking how in the world will I travel without fitting my apartment in my luggage, I am so grateful for GB’s latest stroller (which just so happens to hold the 2014 Guinness World Records™ most compact stroller record). I can now take my favorite stroller with me, since GB Pockit is compact! It’s sleek and overall completely IMPRESSIVE! Folds up in seconds! Stands in place and holds a child up to 55lbs!! So yes! Impressive!
Maxi Cosi: City Motif Print
We’ve always adored Maxi Cosi for their showmanship!! They always bring fun prints and designs- even to the carseats. So why not expect this year to be any different with this year’s new designs. Available only in specialty stores, I’m in love with Maxi Cosi’s new City Motif print. Available for infant and convertible car seats, as well as stroller.
To me nothing is worse than seeing my little one super congested, miserable and unable to blow her nose. I didn’t realize until I became a mom how much of a learning curve it would be around allergy and cold season. NoseFrida has always been my go to tool! Forget about those hospital stock nose aspiration bulbs…
Hint… Don’t cut one open after a month of boogie use- user beware!!
The NoseFrida instructs you to gently suck the boogies out like a straw… Gross for sure- but you’re saved with a foam barrier and seeing your little one relieved is peace alone. Now they have upgraded and added more products to the bunch, and for parents like me a bundle pack now available at Babies R Us. New products to look for are the FeverFrida thermometer and the Fridet butt washer for our toilet training tots.
The show was a blast as expected!! I highly recommend going next year if you, your friend or family member are expecting!!
