The Biggest Baby Shower Ever! Photo: Sarah Merians / The Bump
We had the best time at the Big City Moms Biggest Baby Shower at The Metropolitan Pavilion in NYC on November 7th. The Bump partnered with Big City Moms to host a fun evening of seminars, pampering, trying out the latest and greatest baby gear, and mocktails and snacks! So what'd you miss? Our editor in chief, Carley Roney, was on hand to offer up some tips for first-time mamas. Hundreds of attendees (mostly expecting mamas) got to meet with representatives from over 100 different companies to check out some of the newest baby gear -- we’re talking brands such as Playtex, Britax, Skip Hop, Sage Spoonfuls, Born Free, Summer Infant, Finn and Emma, and Baby Jogger, just to name a few. There was even a cool stroller test track where moms-to-be could try out strollers on different terrain -- grass, gravel and carpet.
And if you’re wondering if there was anything for the dads-to-be, oh baby was there! The shower had a cool Daddy Lounge, where the guys could play video games and enjoy snacks. Some of the dads participated in the Daddy Relay Race -- an obstacle course where dads-to-be changed a baby doll’s diaper, strapped the doll in a baby carrier, put the baby in a stroller and raced to the finish line! It was a hilarious sight to see (there were even a few falls!). The top two finishers of the race won Orbit Baby G2 strollers filled with accessories (pretty awesome!).
Plus, the mamas-to-be didn’t leave empty-handed either. All the guests received huge gift bags full of goodies!
Definitely another fabulous time with Big City Moms! Check out photos from the event here.
