New Products Launching Exclusively at The Baby Show This Weekend Excel London Baby Show February 2016

Regular readers will know that I attended the Baby Show February and October last year. February I was trying to conceive so I felt a bit of a fraud there, but October I strutted my stuff, bump on display and felt fully at home. The thing that impressed me most about October was the amount of products that launched there, that made me feel like I was in a privileged place, seeing things not yet in the shops, like some sort of secret baby society. Well The Baby Show has done it's thang again and here is their press release detailing more exciting new products. It really is one of the best reasons to attend. That and the fact you get to see all the baby brands worth seeing all under one roof, perfect if like my cousin, you are going there to make your all important buggy decision.

The Baby Show with MadeForMums is returning for a 14th year! The UK’s biggest shopping destination for new and expectant parents is set to return to ExCeL London from 19th to 21st February, bringing with it lots of new, exciting and innovative product launches from the biggest brands in the parenting industry.  
The Show is a perfect event for young families to attend with the main stage boasting a fantastic line-up of speakers, including renowned nutritionist, Annabel Karmel MBE, breastfeeding experts, Clare Byam-Cook and Geraldine Miskin, baby sleep gurus Chireal Shallow and Fi Star-Stone and many more.  Adding a twist to the line-up is Blake singer, Humphrey Berney, who will be taking to the stage to sing his collection of lullabies from the album ‘Slumberland.’
So, what should you be getting your hands on in 2016?

Wing Yan Lee, Marketing Manager at The Baby Show, says: “The Baby Show is renowned for being a shopping mecca for new and expectant parents. Many top parenting, as well as boutique, brands use the event as an opportunity to launch their latest products and showcase limited edition ranges to consumers for the first time. We have 200 exhibitors who allow visitors to try before they buy and pre-order products before they are available on the market. There are amazing, exclusive discounts on offer too, so new parents can make huge savings.”

Based on the 75 year Finnish tradition, the British Baby Box is packed with luxurious, British sourced baby essentials for when you bring baby home – including a mattress and sheet so it can be doubled up as a baby’s first crib! In addition they’ve teamed up with Molly & Monty so you can choose a selection of their organic baby clothing to gift to a friend or loved one.

Onni Smart Care - not just a baby monitor, but a whole baby monitoring system, has been designed by busy parents who know first-hand what a juggling act it can be to stay on top of what’s going on with the next generation. The parents behind Onni think there’s more to smart baby monitoring than just seeing and hearing the child, which is why they’ve invented a new, versatile baby monitoring system with HD quality video streaming, alerts and online tools that help parents monitor, measure and stay connected. With Onni, parents can keep track of when the baby last fed, slept or had a nappy change, enabling them to be better prepared to meet the baby's unique needs as well as pinpoint changes in patterns. Parents can also keep track of the child’s growth and developmental milestones and see how the growth correlates with WHO growth charts. What’s more, virtual visiting hours can be granted to those eager grandparents who just can’t visit enough. The first Onni Smart Care baby monitor, Twinkle, is launching at The Baby Show. Price: £99.
