Recap: The 2018 New York Baby Show #NYBSBloggerLounge

My family and I were invited to attend the 8th Annual New York Baby Show on behalf of MomTrends. All opinions expressed belong to me. 

If you read my post from last year, you know that the New York Baby Show is the biggest baby show in the country hosting over 150 exhibitors catering to new and expecting families. Soooo much happened this year the day of the New York baby show that I ALMOST didn’t make it. I pressed my way through car trouble, torrential rain, a croupy 10 month old and an extremely over tired toddler to check out as much of the exhibitors as I can and I’m excited to bring our TOP 3 Items from the show to you!

bloom - Alma Mini Crib

I was fascinated with the bloom's Alma Mini Crib IMMEDIATELY.  Made from solid wood and coming in a variety of colors, the Alma Mini Crib is a super practical crib solution especially for city life. The crib folds and unfolds easily for easy transport and storage. I secretly considered getting this crib for Nana's house but Zayn is such an active kid and follows his big brother constantly that I feel like he wouldn't get that much more use out of it. Check out more on the Alma Mini Crib here.

Chicco - Bravofor2 Double Stroller 

I'm on the lookout for a sit-n-stand stroller even though James thinks we don't need one. I'm just thinking about how summer is coming, we're going to be spending way more time outside and RJs little toddler legs are going to be getting tired. The Chicco Bravofor2 initially caught my eye because it wasn’t big or bulky. With a cute modern design and the ability for your big kid to choose how they want to ride, the Chicco was definitely winning me over. The easy one hand fold had me sold. I’m lucky if I have ONE hand available on outings I can’t deal with not being able to function  . Check out all the great features of the Bravofor2 here

PRIMO - The 2-in-1 Smart Voyager 

One of the last stops we made was PRIMO. I was really excited about the PRIMO LapBaby but then it came time to strap Zayn in, he was too big :(. We further decided based on his size, age and how grabby he is that he wasn’t a good fit for that product anyway, but it definitely would’ve came in handy when he was younger! PRIMO also had the 2–in-1 Smart Voyager on display and this highchair/swing combo I LOVED! It only took about 30 seconds to convert from a swing (controllable entirely by phone) to a fully functional high chair and back again. The swing has awesome features like Automatic Cry Activation, 8 swing speeds, and can be connected via Bluetooth. For more information on the Smart Voyager feel free to check out PRIMO’s website here

All in all, the New York Baby Show didn’t disappoint and I’m glad we pushed through and made it. I can’t wait to go next year (but I’m highly considering making it a solo trip) to see what new products will be out. I can’t believe by then I’ll have two toddlers! Eek!
