new york baby show 2015
*This is a sponsored post on behalf of MomTrends for the New York Baby Show. All opinions are my own and were not influenced in any way.
This past weekend, I had the chance to attend the largest baby show in the entire country – the New York Baby Show. Believe it or not, in all of my years living in the tri-state area, I have never been to this show or to the Chelsea Piers where it was held.
If you are a mom to babies or are thinking of starting your family, the New York Baby Show is a MUST. While the information said 150 vendors, I have to say it felt like so much more.
A highlight of the New York Baby Show was the MomTrends Blogger Lounge.
The GlamSquad helped the MomTrends bloggers feel and look great with makeup touch ups, manicures and new hair styles. If you have never heard of GlamSquad like myself, they are a service that works off of an App to bring stylists to your home in New York City, Miami and Los Angeles.
And THANK YOU to the Nanny League who took care of all of the Blogger Babies so that mom can mingle and network with each other and the brands at the show.
Unfortunately, I did not get to the entire show sadly. The Nanny League was until 1pm and when I picked my children up I knew that with the crowd, I was not going to accomplish anything I needed to.
A few of my brand favorites from the show:
BityBaby Baby Carriers [Review coming June 2015]
You all know what a fan I am of baby wearing. I was so stoked to see an option out there available for baby wearing moms and dads!
The BityBaby baby carrier weighs only 8oz and folds up the same size as a child’s water bottle! Plus, it is the perfect option for on-the-go parents with it’s lightweight, moisture-wicking fabric.
Bitesizers is an easy-to-use, convenient food scissors product that are built with certified food-safe materials. They cut your kid’s food faster than the average fork and knife and use just one hand!
Happy Family products have always been a favorite of mine! I was thrilled to see their new Veggie & Fruit pouches featured to families at the New York Baby Show. Happy Family’s product line is completely organic with quality ingredients your little ones to be nourished!
I have been using wool dryer balls for a few years now, but these seemed to be much larger than the brands I have been using. I also learned that soap nuts, are in fact really a berry found in the wild that produces a natural soap! I cannot wait to try these out! [Stay tuned for results!]
An overall common theme I found at the New York Baby Show was the huge shift towards eco-friendly, all-natural products for babies and the family, with overall wellness being at the core. Products like Shoosha offer the only USDA sealed organic skin care line or Bria Body, which offers custom nutrition, fitness and counseling for new moms in the privacy of their homes are just examples of this.
