Everything I needed to know, I learned at The Biggest Baby Shower

I know what you are thinking: slow your roll, Vanessa. That's a massive statement. But when it comes to the world of babies, it's true. I do not take for granted that I started Sensible Sitters in tandem with the launch of Risa Goldberg & Leslie Venokur's genius: Big City Moms Biggest Baby Shower.  Well before my first child (8 years) I could tell you which bottle was easiest on a gassy baby's belly, how to unfold most strollers in 30 seconds or less, and assist you in finding the right carrier for your build & baby. I could help you to navigate the world of gear given your lifestyle and your space constraints. That's all thanks to the informal education I received from attending a dozen years of Biggest Baby Showers! I NEVER experienced anxiety around registry or gear and if I did get anxious, I referred back to brands that Risa & Leslie's team trusted. 

Here's what I can assure you it will do for you: 

  • alleviate stress related to gadget & gear purchases - everyone is there to show you there product, with the understanding that the world of babies is not "one size fits all". You can test drive it all pre baby!
  • allow you to learn about new products that weren't out when you had your last baby - like the Snoo, for example. 
  • allow you to try on multiple baby carriers & learn what feel natural on your body.
  • allow your partner some insight into the wacky world of baby gear - you guys can do this together! Let your partner be a part of the process. The earlier you let them in, the more bonded they can be - the more helpful they can be!
  • gives you a chance to win amazing prizes! Strollers, high chairs, cribs!

The Biggest Baby Shower brings to you all the gear companies & services, under one roof. In conjunction with the expo are informational speakers on a myriad of topics. On February 7th, The Biggest Baby Shower will take place in South San Francisco from 5:30-9pm. Having started my involvement so long ago, it's really rewarding to have been asked to moderate the panels this year! Speakers will include:

Attending the biggest baby shower was a great experience. As a second time mom it was great to see new things from brands I knew and trusted but also experience new brands, test products and speak to people with intimate knowledge of the products. Aside from the numerous vendors, the ticket price more than pays for itself when you see what comes in the gift bag. My friend and I were completely blown away by not only the quantity of items but the usefulness and quality of we received. A must attend event for any expecting or newborn mom!

I loved attending the biggest baby shower as a second time mom because it gave me a chance to see a bunch of new products that have come out in the last few years. The gift bag alone is worth the visit! So many awesome samples & products to try out! I found new things for baby #2 I would have otherwise not have known about!
