Mummy Confession: I love finding all things baby! Now with a baby niece, it gives me more reason to investigate all that is baby and mum products all over again!

The Pregnancy, Baby Children’s Expo is hitting Sydney in just a couple weeks now! I wanted to chat about some of my top recommendations on what to check out (and maybe even purchase) for mums and mums-to-be as well as products I will be going to investigate further! In BOLD are brands I know and love and would recommend stopping by to have a chat about what they can offer! I have also put *s next to ones that look interesting (but have not tried personally). This is not an exhaustive list of everything you can find there, but things I figured that new and expectant mums would be on the lookout for.
Tickets are FREE if you register before the show, and it’s perfect for mums, mums-to-be and anyone who loves seeing all there is in baby and children’s products as well as getting some good deals (and maybe a sample or two)! They even hold classes and talks by experts if you are after advice or help in the parenting realm! (From Antenatal information on “what now?!” when you’re pregnant to breastfeeding, first aid, car seat safety and more!

Bigger Shops with a range of baby items available:
Sometimes there are bigger stalls at the expos where you can find a range of products (not just limited to one brand or type.
