Fave Finds at the Grand Baby Company Fair

All I can say is that this baby fair is truly grand -- a huge success with over 75 exhibitors and a throng of shoppers coming and going since it's opening day yesterday, and the long queue at the check-out lanes. 

This baby fair will run until tomorrow, January 30, so better hurry and avail of huge discounts to complete your shopping for babies and toddlers. 

I went with my girl yesterday and it was late in the day so, unfortunately, with the swelling crowd plus a restless girl in tow, I was not able get a closer look and take pictures at all the fabulous items on offer. Let me just tell you, this baby fair did not disappoint. With the widest range of merchandise from top bands in the baby industry, it would surely make your trip worth it, despite the discouraging long lines toward the counters.

Just a few items I spied while walking around the booths:

A pregnant friend of mine asked me to find this First Years baby sleeper and luckily, they have the latest model, and it's also on sale! I told her the good news and she already went and got one today.

Since I don't have a baby anymore, I was just on the look-out for items that I can feature here, and maybe something for my four-year-old. As soon as we reached the Pigeon and Chicco booth, her eyes zoomed in on the shoes!!!

There she is again, this time, happily trying on the only "big-sized" girls' shoes which was a steal at P400! She wore it for the rest of the day. This was a no-brainer for me since I have been buying Chicco toddler shoes and sandals ever since my son could walk. He's now 7.

More styles available for the cutest stubby little feet.

After my girl was born, Playtex has been my preferred brand of baby bottles after using three other very popular brands I bought for my eldest. Their BPA-free VentAire bottles prevent bubbles and hiccups, and their DropIns Nurser bottle system with disposable milk liners are the best for me.

Toys, toys, toys! There were so many to choose from, and Fisher-Price has always been a top choice for most parents. I grew up with Fisher-Price and now my kids are enjoying their toys as well. I was very satisfied with our Fisher-Price baby bouncer and was happy to see that there are more designs to choose from compared to when I had my first baby seven years ago. Other personal favorites are Playgro, Tiny Love and V-Tech -- my kids all have toys from these durable and educational toy brands.

One of the more successful brands of all-natural baby care line is Indigo Baby. I love their massage oils and sprays. And now I found out they also have these baby-wearing gear for new moms. That's baby-wearing in style!

Of course, I also took home this value pack from Cetaphil, my daily facial cleanser for many years now. It's dermatologist-recommended, gentle, and hypo-allergenic. Perfect for all skin types. Which reminds me...I totally forgot to claim my free sampler after paying for this! :-(

I hope SM could add more cashier counters by tomorrow to accommodate hundreds, maybe thousands, of  shoppers and avoid the build-up of super long lines, making customers waste hours just lining up to pay.

The highlight of our quick trip to the baby fair was meeting the very charming Ms. Christine Bersola-Babao, the creator of online parenting show ParentinTV.  Her warmth and candor made her so endearing. It was such a pleasure to be able to chat with her and this brief and memorable encounter surely made my day!
She was one of the celebrity-mom guests during the parenting program, and you can still catch her tomorrow afternoon as she shares her experience with CordLife and cord blood banking. Incidentally, ParentinTV will be having an event entitled "I Love My Family" on February 6, 2:00 PM at The Podium mall in Ortigas Center, Pasig City.

Go and shop at the Grand Baby Company Fair, SM Megatrade Hall 2 & 3, until January 30 only.
