What’s New in Baby Products | MomCave at the New York Baby Show
At the New York Baby Show, even a seasoned mom can discover baby and child products she never knew she needed, but now can’t live without. MomCave’s Jen (with two children in tow) attended the largest trade show of baby and children’s products in the country and gives us her picks for what’s new in baby products.
To all you first-time moms out there, let me preface this post by saying that there is very little you actually need for a new baby. Put aside the long lists of things retailers “suggest” you register for and take a moment to breathe. Newborns need diapers, a safe place to sleep, and a way to eat. That’s about it. (Look for a post from us on the only baby products you ever need soon.) But needing and wanting are two very different things. I may need a way to carry all my crap around but I want a new Orla Kiely diaper bag. See the difference?
But if you love to shop like me, the New York Baby show is THE place to go to find what’s new in baby products each year. Held at New York City’s Pier 92, the show features 140 top brands and hosts thousands of new and expecting parents each year. And for us mama bloggers, there is an amazing blogger lounge hosted by our pals at MomTrends.
Here’s what got me excited this year:
Our family does a lot of traveling. And with a 10 month old and a five year old, we tend to lug strollers and car seats around. I found two new products at the baby show that make travel a lot less cumbersome.
It’s the only car seat with integrated wheels, allowing you to travel easily with one item. It’s great for taxis and certified for air travel. And I WANT ONE.
Have you ever seen a stroller that can fold this tiny?
Because I’m tired of blankets falling off the stroller and getting run over…
Any chance my baby will stop chewing on my actual iPhone??
A couple of years ago, I met some of the mamas from Evenflo Feeding at the New York Baby Show, and we became instant mom-buds. They sent me their Double Electric Breastpump to try and it’s become one of my go-to working mom products. I’ve tried quite a few pumps and this one works as well as the leading pumps, but costs about a third of the price!
