    Hi just wondering if anyone is going to the baby show in the excel centre this weekend? If so what is everyone looking for? Also I thought if anyone is we can post on here any good deals or maybe not so good deals.
    I will be going on Saturday and i'm looking for a maxi cosi car seat and mattresses as I need one for crib and cot. Also maybe bedding for it.

    I was going to go but now we are going to the Birmingham NEC baby show on the 14th May. I may be rather big by then but sure I can shuffle round! Will be looking at nappies and slings. And the husband will probably be looking for anything gadgety!

    All stalls have a card machine :) they had tonnes of car seats we found peppermint (I think) seemed to be undercutting on most things apart from the ergo carrier. It's worth bringing pen and paper and writing the different prices down. We walked round for about two hours decided what we wanted then went back to the stalls do we weren't carrying anything. The standard delivery seemed to be anything from 5-7 days to three weeks c

    I had a nice time tho it reminded me of turkey or Egypt everyone is hassling you. I did get a few freebies which was great. I didn't do the talks as I wasn't really interested, only did the red cross one which was a free 30 min. I dot my car seat which is a pebble plus and a 2 way fix base they was 171 each instead of 190. I got 12 muslins for £12. 2 toys for £10 for pram and car seat and some bips.

    I went yesterday, SiL and Brother with my 8mth old niece are going today.

    Only got a couple of bibs as I'm so early, gave us a better of on items we do/don't want though and lots of good catalogs for more unique bits.

    FiL has bought 'bump' a nursery night-light/clock/thermometer in a penguin shape though lol. He couldn't help himself.

    Hi I got there for when it opened and was done by lunch time. I didn't do any of the talks tho as I just wanted to shop. They did say it was better to go first thing as it got so much busier even by lunch time it was getting busy so was glad to leave. Also prices drop over the weekend. For example the tommy tippee prep machine started at 120 down to 80 at sat morning by lunch time it was 6t then just before I left 60 god k ow what it was the Sunday. If I go again I'd go on a Sunday as j think you would get better deals. It was ok but I'm glad I didn't pay full price for tickets and i'm glad I got there early. Hoe you have a good time xx
