When you’ve got a baby around, “gear” suddenly becomes a very important word. It’s all about finding the right thing to make your life easier so you can manage all the other non-baby things in your life.
I’ve talked a lot already about the things that make my life easier in my Favorite Things posts. And there are always more things I’m adding to the list. So I’m super pumped to head out to Drool Baby Expo on May 15th to check out all that is new and awesome in the world of baby-dom.
Drool Baby is put on by the must-visit toy store in the Boston area, Magic Beans. And all the big names in the baby world will be there. Just to name a few:
- Nested Bean, the makers of the Zen Swaddle, which Tessa proudly modeled and currently enjoys at naptime. You’ll see her picture when you visit!
- Rebecca Deaton Photography, who did the awesome photography for Charlene’s Baby Gender Reveal Party and Tessa’s swaddler photo shoot.
- Sage Spoonfuls, a new baby food making and storing system.
- Skip Hop, the classic diaper bag brand.
- Medela, who make virtually all the breastfeeding paraphernalia I own.
- Happy Baby and Ella’s Kitchen, makers of my go-to food on the go.
- Cybex, the people who made my beloved carseat/stroller combo.
Drool Baby lets you get up close and personal with all the new products. It’s particularly awesome if you’re looking for carseats or strollers or other big purchases. I know I’ll be keeping an eye out for what to get for a convertible car seat once Tessa grows out of her bucket seat. (Carseat favorites Britax will be there. And when it comes to strollers? You name it: BabyJogger, Bugaboo, BOB, Maclaren, Phil&Teds, UPPAbaby, Chicco, Bumbleride, etc.)
And this isn’t just a chance to check out products. There are prizes and I hear the gift bags are to die for.
I know this all sounds great and I’m not going to leave you empty handed.
