Come see Me at the Bluewater Baby Show April 25-27

It's my favourite time of year again.  Ellie turns 3 this week, Easter is just around the corner, the sun has put it's hat on and it's time for the Bluewater Baby and Toddler Show!!

Baby and Toddler Show
Glow, Bluewater Shopping Centre (next to cinema)
Friday April 25th 9:30-4:30
Saturday April 26th 9:30-5:00
Sunday April 27th 10:00-5:00

My Mum and I have such a fun time each year meeting all the other exhibitors and the team that puts the show together the day before, then all of the customers that come to see us over the three days of the show.  I've done a few shows, some small and some big but I think Bluewater has a really good balance of benefits and caters for almost every need.

Bluewater is really easy to get to - Its right off the M25 below the Dartford Tunnel.  Go East on the A2 and it's right there.  Parking is completely free and plentiful.  I usually park behind M&S near the cinema.

Getting around the show - Manduca usually do a carrier loaning programme.  You give them your buggy and they give you a carrier.  It's a great way to try out a soft structured carrier and you can walk around the show without running over anyones ankles (although the carrier is not my friend when I'm fitting bras LOL).  The show is big enough to carry lots of the items you want to see but small enough so that you won't get lost and will always be in sight of the toilets and coffee cart (I also have a chair in my fitting room so just ask if you need a sit down).

We all know each other - Spending so much time with each other every year means that a lot of the stall holders know each other and we are a really friendly bunch sharing blu-tak and scissors etc.  Being local my Mum and I have the chance of getting to know lots of local Mums and Mums to be and because my Mum loves to talk to everyone you'll know my family inside out by the end of the show too.  We absolutely love meeting you all at the show.  Meeting new people, catching up with old friends pregnant with their next baby and hearing how you are getting on.

 Find BoobieMilk at J36 halfway down the far right aisle

We will be bringing a lot of new items this year and you'll be seeing some trusted products we've stocked for years.  As always I'll be taking bookings before the show starts in return for a lovely 15% discount and we will be running a lovely competition throughout the show for some lovely breastfeeding goodies.  I also have a number of free tickets for the show and will be issuing them on a first come, first served basis for those pre-booking appointments.

We will have bras fitting from 32B-42H with bands 34/36 up to a J cup.  Prices will start at just £10 each.  I also have some gorgeous nursing/teething/babywearing necklaces winging their way to me from Monkey Mama and Cherub Chews, so do stop by stand J36 to have a look at all the pretties.

I hope you all have a fantastic Easter with all this glorious sunshine and we'll see some of you at the show a week on Friday-Sunday.  Do pop by and say Hi to me and my Mum, we'll be at J36 all weekend.  Turn right as you enter the door and half way down the far right aisle you'll find BoobieMilk.  Email me to pre-book your appointment at karen.mccully@gmail.com
