Top picks from the 2017 New York Baby Show

wpid-wp-1431957191518

Every year,  the biggest companies get together for what is known as the NY Baby Show. 

Mommy-to-be’s and veteran moms alike scouting the venue for the hottest new items for baby and mom, and once again Momtrends has hosted some of us mom’s for a special day of pampering and mingling so that we can bring the show to you if you couldn’t attend.

There are over 100 vendors,  and with so much to see and talk about,  I’ve narrowed it down to my top 3 favorites for you.

#1 is the Austlen stroller.  1 word – VERSATILITY! With over 30 handy configurations,  this is the future of strollers and should be at the top of every parents wish list. Check out just a few of the life altering configurations… you’ll wonder how you ever did “life” without it. (Photos via Austlen.com)

This handy dandy stroller can hold up to 150lbs of groceries,  kids, and hey… I won’t judge if you want to take a seat😊.

Luxury does come at a steep price though… at a whopping  $849, it comes in either black or navy blue. Assuming you can afford this #1 pick,  at least you can justify it by the fact it’ll make hope life easier, and happy wife = happy life and all..

#2 is the ergoPouch. It’s no wonder it originated in the ‘down under’. It reminds me of a kangaroo pouch mixed with a swaddle blanket.

We’ve all seen the swaddle at babies r’ us and various other places,  so what makes ergoPouch different? Well, they’re made from natural fibers which make them breathable and regulate temperature which are two of the most important things.  I can remember “unwrapping” my babies after they slept all night swaddled and every time they were drenched in sweat.

This also makes them perfect for any weather and eliminate the need for extra blankets.  They have sleep sacks for infants,  and even these adorable toddler sleep suits that make the transition from passed out toddler,  to sleeping cozy toddler a breeze.

Check out their neat categories, I promise you’ll want one for your sweet little one. (Photos via Ergopouch.com)

The best part? All that cuteness will only run you between $20-$35, that is assuming you can control yourself and only buy one 😉..

I think every new parent looks for a miracle to help their baby when that first fussy fit arrives.  Typically during te first week home from the hospital, adjusting to life and formula/breastmilk, your new baby is bound to fuss a bit. Typically,  tiny gas bubbles are the problem and they can be fixed with mylicon drops of fennel when my boys were young.

Now,  there is an organic alternative that doesn’t only help with gas,  but any uncomfort your babies belly may feel, even hiccups! (Via Wellementsbaby.com)

Lastly,  special shout out to water wipes. We try to keep our babies butts clear,  but what if the wipes we are using are the ones causing the nasty rashes we rush to cure? Water wipes relieves the stress of that,  pure and simple.

2017 NY Baby Show – Ticket Giveaway!!

NYBS2017-Ticket Giveaway-Blog-700x500[2]

The 2017 New York Baby Show, on May 20 & 21 at Pier 94 in NYC will once again be the largest show for new and expectant parents in the country!

We didn’t get to attend last year unfortunately, but the year before, I had a blast. My kids were all behaved, so I think that helped a bit 😀.

You can expect to see a ton of vendors, amazing deals on baby/child products, and sneak peaks of items new to market… check out my previous year review of the NY Baby Show.

Now in its 7th year, no other event provides a better experience for thousands of expectant and new families from New York and neighboring counties, seeking a family-friendly jamboree of top brands, great speakers and seminars, big giveaways, and lots of learning, support, bonding, and fun as you make your way into parenthood. 

I am giving away tickets for you and your family to experience the show. I have just 10 tickets (family or individual) to give away, first come first serve. Family tickets cover up to 2 adults and 4 children per ticket!

20170315_193240.png

If you did not score a FREE ticket, make sure to use my 50% off code good on any ticket!

Normal ticket price is $30 per family (for 2 adults and up to 4 children), and $20 per individual.

Jack & Jill Gift Set Giveaway!

1485099574919

These gift sets from jackandjillkids.com are extremely adorable and perfect for a baby shower gift or even a first birthday gift! Dental care is so important and it’s something that new parents rarely think about, I mean, a baby doesn’t hand any teeth so it doesn’t matter right? Wrong! Early gum care and dental care is so important, so let this kit be a reminder to new parents and start them in the right direction.

This kit isn’t only for infants though, it is great for toddlers too! They’ll love to rinse with their adorable purple hippo cup and best of all of is BPA free!

My boys are no strangers to dental care. We maintain our 6 month cleanings and make sure to take care of any issues right away. I learn so much from asking questions at the dentist especially when it comes to my kids. Did you know that children shouldn’t have more then 6oz of juice in a day? Water is best!

Semi-annual cleanings can prevent future problems in you’re child’s teeth on the future. Even a decaying baby tooth can effect the tooth bulb booking below the gum line. Think of decay as a rash, it will go onto anything else it touches, like neighboring teeth as well. It’s best to get rid of that risk by either removing or filling the decaying tooth before other problems arise.

Christmas is over, and we are left up brave out the rest of the Winter indoors. In New Jersey we’ve been having some really below normal temperatures and have had to find some things to keep the kids busy and cozy inside.

With all of the toys Santa brought, I’m sure that my kids aren’t the only ones who are still sitting board saying “I’m bored there’s nothing to do mom!”.

With that being said, I am giving away an another airplane 2 in 1 Lite Poppers (to the right – a $19.99 value) since it was so popular the first time around! 20170118_122109.png
