Don't miss out on the biggest and best baby fairs and exhibitions! Prepare the best for your little ones!
All things babies! Can you smell the baby powder and baby oils?
Looking back, that was how visceral my experience was as a new mum. I can feel my ovaries 'skipping' as I look forward to major baby fairs and gigantic baby exhibitions.
Events like these act as one-stop havens to unleash the madness in new parents/ parents-to-be, like yourself; as you prepare to stock up on diapers and get first dips on the latest strollers or the best bottle sterilisers!
These days, there are also interactive and interesting conferences specially catered to the needs of new parents, who don’t necessarily have a firm grasp on the ins and outs of parenting (yet).
Here are the wonderfully curated baby fairs and exhibitions that you must go to this year:
Baby & Kids World
Brought to you by Takashimaya, Baby & Kids World offer a wide range of kids' outfits and toys from brands like Ameda, Bonbijou, Britax, Huggies, LeapFrog, Petit Bateau, Philips Avent, Pigeon and more!
They go all out with lucky draw prices, special promotions and you can even trade-in bottles!
(Best part is, it's in town. Perfect excuse to go shopping for mum and dad afterwards. Heh.)
It's still not too late to catch this event as it goes on all the way till 12 March.
