The baby show has become one of my regular visits. I love to go and meet up with people who I don't normally see all year but we spend a lot of time talking on social media sites. It's great to catch up and hear about what the new products are going to be and how the plans to launch are coming along.
I was kindly invited by fisher price to see the launch of their new jumperoo. Both my girls loved their jumperoo and I was rather sad when I put it into the attic to store it. The new jumperoo has some rather interesting new features. Like previous jumperoo it is height adjustable, but now it also is length adjustable too. The jumperoo moves length ways too, which therefore encourage babies to take their first steps. Think of it as a mini walker only limited to around 4 steps forwards and backwards. The toys have also changed slightly and I must admit I miss the frog. It was clear though that the babies who were in the jumperoo were having a real good time and loved bouncing as much as walking.
I met up with some familiar faces too, but there also seemed to rather a few missing which was a shame. It was great to see Panasonic there for the first time who were showcasing their cameras and videos and their stand seemed to be very popular. Cosatto as per usual had one of the brightest and most welcoming stands and seemed very busy.
I suffered with diastasis recti with my youngest daughter and had a 5cm gap. This progressively got worse and I was told I would need surgery. Determined to avoid surgery I worked hard at Pilates and after 3 months my Dr was pleasantly surprised that I had managed to fix the gap and avoid surgery. I loved chatting with the ladies on the One Fit Mama stand as it made me realise I should have received better care to avoid this in the first place. Also to see how best too help ladies in a similar situation, realise that surgery isn't the only option.
The show felt a little smaller than previous years but it was still busy and there was still everything under one roof. The variety this year was much greater everything from cameras and videos to the lady trying to get me to adopt a cat and walking balloons. I still missed some of the regular faces but it was lovely to meet new ones. Perhaps next time I will even get to me Prof Robert Winston?
I was provided with a press ticket to the baby show and an invite to Fisher Price. However these are my own words and opinions and I was not asked to write this post
