If you are a parent-to-be, or a family with small children in Sydney or Brisbane, then don’t miss out on this year’s Baby & Toddler Show. With everything from expert parenting advice and information, the latest products and entertainment, the show promises something for both parents and children. There are even luxury facilities on site where parents can feed and change their little ones in private.
Show-goers can enjoy a shopping experience like no other with over 100 boutique and household-name brands on site. Shoppers can browse, research, trial and buy products to their heart’s content.
So, what can you expect to see at the show? Mums Lounge brings you this sneak peek at just a few of the fabulous exhibitors and their remarkable products.
Travel with Kidz
In conjunction with Club Med, Travel with Kidz will be giving away a family holiday. The prize is for four nights accommodation at any of their South East Asia resorts (excludes Bintan) for 2 adults and 2 children.
Not only is Club Med all-inclusive, enabling families to stay within their holiday budget without risk of overspending, but they also guarantee inter-connecting rooms. With a variety of locations ranging from ski resorts to beach resorts, there’s something for everyone.
Visit the Kidz Travel stand for expert advice from their travel consultants and to enter the draw.
Snotty One is Australia’s first battery operated portable infant nasal aspirator, enabling gentle and effective removal of nasal mucous in seconds. A big Mums lounge thumbs up for this product. Anything that makes an unwell infant more comfortable and enables both child and parents a better chance at some sleep is a winner as far as we are concerned! Get yours at a special discounted Baby & Toddler Show price.
Clip n Stay
“There’s nothing more frustrating when you’re out and about with your little one than constantly having to pick up a blanket that’s been kicked off,” says Clip N Stay creator Erin Bridges.
Clip N Stay Blankets have a clip attached at each corner for easy use. You simply drape the blanket over your child and clip the blanket to the device you’re using. The Clip N Stay also works great as a breastfeeding shield. You can easily clip it to your shirt when feeding.
Clip n Stay Baby Blankets retail for $17.99 for the Light Weight Range and $22.99 for the Warm Minky Winter Range.
If your baby is starting on solids then you can’t go past the Cherub Baby stand and check out their two fantastic new products.
The Cherub Baby colour change Food Change spoons come in packs of two (yellow and red) and change to white in contact with food over 42 degrees. These handy spoons will be available at the Baby & Toddler Show this year for the special show price of $3.95 (usual RRP $5.95).
Also available will be the new pre-sterilised Baby Cherubs Food Pouches, perfect for storing your own nutritious homemade food for your growing baby or toddler. Packs of 20 Food pouches will be available for purchase at the show for the special price of $14 (RRP $17.95).

Consultants will be available to answer any questions visitors have and to demonstrate how this innovative urban vehicle easily converts from a pram to a bike in just twenty seconds.
TAGA is one of the hottest new trends, and can carry one or two children aged six months to six years.

Emma, naturopath, and the mum behind ‘Mum’s secret’ will be available to answer all of your questions regarding your baby’s skin. There will be giveaways throughout the show, as well as your chance to win a one year supply of Mum’s Secret Soothe and Repair cream. Mum’s Secret is especially formulated for sensitive skin and is eczema friendly, soothing irritated skin whilst it nourishes and protects. Its non-greasy formula is free from artificial preservatives and harsh chemicals making it a convenient, effective and natural solution suitable for the whole family.
Babyam is the world’s first feeding device and steriliser in one. With this nifty machine there is no need for parents to measure the level of the formula, warm or cool the water or milk, or even sterilise the bottle as the Babyam does it all for you! All parents need to do is fill the 1.2 litre water tank, add formula to the designated compartment (can hold up to 400g) and then preset their preferences. i.e. temperature, amount of formula and volume of liquid. Hit start and Babyam does the rest!
