Let's be honest ladies, it's in our genes to shop. Therefore, one of the best things about having kids is buying all that lovely baby booty in preparation for their arrival. It's not that we want to buy stuff, it's that we're biologically programmed to do so.
Far be it from me to go against the laws of nature, so with this firmly in mind I have 5 PAIRS OF TICKETS TO THE BABY SHOW with Prima Baby and Fisher-Price at London ExCel this Friday, February 18.
If your name is randomly drawn, you and a friend will win free entry to the show - which would cost you up to £20 each on the door!
That's leaves you with more money to spend on baby essential such as car seats, feeding pillows, toys, and cappuccinos (well, you'll need a nice break after all that walking around, won't you?)
The fab thing about The Baby Show (and I can speak from experience, having been to four myself) is that you'll find thousands of Mum & Baby products under one roof. You can take advantage of the great Baby Show offers and discounts.
It's also great for stumbling across those ingenious products that make pregnancy and motherhood just a little bit easier. I'm talking belly support bands, super absorbent burp bibs, breathing monitors, sulfate-free skincare, and dinner plates that not only secure to the highchair tray (so bubs can't throw it on the floor) but tell you if their food is at the right temperature!
You'll get to sample new products and 'Try Before You Buy'. Of course it's totally child-friendly, with play and feeding areas, nappy changing facilities, wide aisles for pushchairs, expert advice, and even children's entertainers to keep the little ones amused.
And if you end up buying more than you expected (very easy to do with so many great bargains) there's even an area where you can drop off your shopping until you're ready to leave, or can arrange to have it picked up.
