Flashback to 7 years ago…
Oh those new mum feels! We were so excited to finally be in the “mummy realm” Wowzas! What a world! Our eyes were literally being opened to new products and services and devices and toys and foods every single day! Super overwhelming yet so exciting!
So we decided to hop on a train with our precious little newborns Annabelle and Lenny and venture into the city for the day to attend our very first Essential Baby & Toddler Show. It was a big deal! Would the babies behave? How would we go breast feeding in public? Taking the prams on the train? Well, we needn’t of worried because it was such a fantastic day where we felt totally inclusive and “with our people”! Aside taking the prams on the train.. here’s a tip – don’t go home in peak hour!
We loved trying out all the new products that as a new mum, we had never even heard of before! There were baby carriers and snot suckers, mini baby sunglasses and pram attachments for shopping bags! Things we take for granted now!
We listened to talks from inspiring mums about boobs and bottles and nappies and baby safety, we were introduced to the most amazing brands which made us want to buy one of everything! We also felt totally at ease sitting on the chairs, feeding our bubs with encouraging smiles thrown our way from complete strangers like a secretive mum society!
Fast Forward to now…
That was almost 7 years ago now, and it almost brings a little proud tear to our eyes to announce that we have now gone full circle and this year, WE will be the ones sitting on the stage as panelists! What a pinch us moment!
