Oh, how we love to shop! But when you’re in the market for baby gear, the temptation to spend up large calls for some serious bargain hunting (OMG! How beautiful and simple is that nursery set below… I need that). We’ve just received the advance details about special deals at the Auckland Baby Expo (May 14-15, Eventfinda Stadium, North Shore), so if you’re looking for those big ticket items like prams, cots, carseats, front packs and bedding, feast your eyes.
1.Baby Jogger City Mini 2 (image above)
These one-hand-fold wonders have such a great look, and as they were originally designed by a runner, who wanted something with more durability across different terrain, they are perfect for day-to-day and fitness. Normally $649.95, they will be at the Expo for $455 (that’s 30% off, woohoo).
Everyone raves about the Harmony Baby Carrier, and for good reason – it’s super-stylish and functional. Baby carrying is such a great way to bond with baby, and if they’re a little unsettled, it works like magic. If you purchase any Harmony carrier or Bouncer at the Expo, you’ll receive a free gift (ooh, love free gifts, I’ll be popping in to see what it is for sure!)
We are pretty excited to see there will be a huge 40% off the Chicco Steam cookers. Making baby food is actually pretty easy with this handy gadget, and if you can keep it all fresh, simple and healthy when you start weaning, it’s such a great start for bubs. My favourite blend once they start enjoying different tastes is kumara and apricot. A winning combo, I promise.
Love these, and it’s much, much better to throw on a Brolly Sheet than have to wash the actual mattress as well as the bedding (I don’t think anyone really prepares you for the level of bed-changing that goes on). There will 35% off King Single Brolly Sheets, which is an all time low that you’ll never see anywhere, not even on their website.
How beautiful are these?! They are so simple and will go with anything. Add your choice of wall and rug colours, plants and some beautiful textured blankets, and you’ll create such a cool Scandi vibe. At the Expo, the cots are selling from $619 and bassinets from $149. They will also have 50% off the toddler bed conversions (that come with the bed), which is well worth considering because they turn into little toddlers before you know it.
6.Edwards & Co
If you’re looking for the whole gamut, then this is such an awesome deal. You’ll save $300 across the Oscar Mx bundle, and who doesn’t love Edwards & Co. That would be your stroller, carry cot capsule + base, luxe liner, sleeping bag, cup holder, sun + rain cover, and canvas stroller organiser all done and dusted.
These are so cute, and everyone seems to recommend them . I’m really loving how they can be easily moved from room to room (namely bub’s room to Mama’s room and then back again, depending on how sleep-deprived you’re feeling at the time). They have $100 off the SnüzPod4 Bundle at the Expo, which includes the SnüzPod4 bedside bassinet, Mattress Protector, and a 2-piece Fitted Sheet Set.
8.BUMP&baby Mama-to-be Bundle
Make sure you pop in and see us too! If you’ve been to the Expo before and seen mamas wandering around with cool boxes – that’s the BUMP&baby PeekaBox. It’s packed with goodies and our latest magazine (new issue out just two days before the Expo). We’re also including three-months access to our amazingly comprehensive online antenatal course (includes bite-size videos, podcasts, stunning imagery and printables). You can buy these at the Expo for $39.95 ( it’s worth well over $200) , AND we have an extra gift for you as a surprise bonus (hint… it’s something you’ll definitely want for your nursery).
See you there xx
