Yay I was at the baby show and I was more than excited as I was meeting up with a fellow yummy mummy alice bailie who I've know since school days. Apart from a social meet I was also Invited to Tommee Tippee's new product launch 'perfect prep'.
The last baby show I attended was back in may 2012 when baby Alex was only 6 days old. Many exhibitors I know of or have stumbled across, either by good old fashioned word of mouth or browsing websites and blogs.
New and innovative products I love, gadgets and gizmos but of course they have to work!
So here's some of my highlights and products to keep an eye on....
A fab little product! i cant wait to give it a try...Introducing the multi-award winning chillipeeps teat that solves a common problem many people experience when out and about with young hungry babies and no clean sterilised bottle to use, by allowing a teat to be attached directly to a carton to feed your baby and many mineral water bottles to enable you to rehydrate your baby.
The idea was born In Yorkshire, when Claire had set off to a family party with her baby, she knew she had a carton of ready-made formula in the car but couldn't remember if she picked up the clean sterilised bottle. Knowing her baby would need a feed whilst she was out, she asked her husband to check for the bottle while she wondered why no-one had invented anything that could attach directly to the carton.
More information is available with a list of stockists on the chillipeeps website.
