A huge thanks to my colleague for informing me about this Motherhood Expo event that was held over the weekend.
We headed down on Friday and oh boy, the crowd! There were so many exhibitors with beautiful and interesting items.
I have always been a fan of cloth diapers after their re-introduction. I even spoke to Faiz on the idea but I guess at the back of his mind, he thought of the traditional cloth diaper which you have to boil, fold into triangle and use a huge pin to secure. The initial startup cost to use cloth diaper was extremely high. So, the idea was rebutted.
There were quite a number of cloth diaper exhibitors, Bumwear, Moo Moo Kow and Charlie Banana. We spent hours at their booths, listening to their explanation and watching their demonstrations and were impressed by Bumwear and Charlie Banana. We decided to go ahead with Charlie Banana as the material is softer and less bulkier than Bumwear; and with the option of using reusable and disposable insert, does give Charlie Banana an advantage. The price was reasonable, almost 50% off the original price and calculating how much we will save in future, Faiz bought the idea and item too. 🙂
So little bub, you will be first in line to reduce the carbon footprint.
I was actually looking for Manduca carrier, but it was sold out (yes, sold out on Friday!), so the friendly sales girl, who served us Charlie Banana, introduced us to Baby Bjorn Comfort Carrier , which they were having promotion too (another 50% savings again!). Faiz tried it on with a dummy baby which weighed approximately 6kg, and loved how comfortable it felt. It has an adjustable waist belt, so most of the weight will be transferred to the hips and will reduce strains on the back. I love that it is organic cotton too.
This is why I love expo exhibitions, you can never beat the prices. The savings that we have made, can well cover another purchase.
It sure did, and we signed up on Antenatal Classes with Thomson Medical ParentCraft.
We will take a break and let our bank accout recuperate before our next purchase again.
