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 6th and 7th, Eventfinda Stadium, North Shore), so if you’re looking for those must have items like prams, cots, carseats, babycare, nappies and more… Feast your eyes on these!
Medela Breast pumps
This special deal deserves first mention, because breast pumps are a new baby must-have, and Medela will have 50% off all breast feeding products and breast pump bundles. Stock is limited… so if there was ever a good reason to get to the Expo early, this is it. Medela is a fantastic brand, and if they have some of their lanolin nipple cream on offer, we highly recommend it.
BUMP&baby Mama-to-be Bundle
Make sure you pop in and see us too! If you’ve been to the Expo before and saw mamas wandering around with cool boxes – that’s the BUMP&baby Box. It’s packed with goodies and our latest magazine. We’re also including three-months’ access to our amazingly comprehensive online antenatal course (including bite-size videos, podcasts, stunning imagery and printables). You can buy these at the Expo for $39.95 (it’s worth well over $150).
Sleepytot have everything you will ever need to set up your nursery, feeding station and handy gadgets to help baby sleep, and they have 30% off selected products at the Expo. This is your go-to for baby shower gifts too, because a gorgeous comforter or nightlight is the perfect present – and that Lulla Owl Sleep with it’s own heartbeat is definitely on the our list!
EDWARDS & CO – Save up to 20% On Selected Products
If you’re looking for the whole gamut, then this Edwards & Co deal is awesome. 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.
Bear & Moo | Hello Poppet | Launder & Love – Save up to 20% on selected products
The bear & moo stand is going to be jam-packed with amazing stuff. You’ll be able to stock up on reusable nappies and breast pads (and watch out for their great-value starter sets), and you’ll also be able to see their new Launder & Love cot sheets, which are adorable (I want the Green Leaf for my bed!) and their Hello Poppet rompers… so cuuuute!
SQuoodles – Save up to 50% On Selected Products
Squoodles has a massive range of educational toys and books, and they have up to 50% off. We haven’t seen which products will be at the Expo yet, but the finger puppets and Unicorn Hoppers look like a lot of fun!
Snüz – SnüzPod Bundle Deal for $499 (Save $151)
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 $151 off the SnüzPod4 Bundle at the Expo, which includes the SnüzPod4 bedside bassinet, Mattress Protector, and a 2-piece Fitted Sheet Set.
Petite Eats – save up to 40% on selected products
There are so many feeding essentials on offer at Petite Eats who have up to 40% off, but do check out the the little Gummy Moulds (are you into making juice-based gummy lollies for kids too… yum!) and bath time Origami Moulds. Silicon is a such a great way to go, and these guys are always one creative step ahead of the rest.
Brolly Sheets – save up to 50% on Brolly Sheets
Love these, and it’s much, much better to throw on a Brolly Sheet than to 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 up to 50% off so here’s your chance to stock up.
Wombat Australasia – save up to 30% on selected products
Have you seen these ingenious baby wearing jackets? They are very cool, and with winter coming (and 30% off at the Expo) I think this is a no-brainer. Wombat & Co jackets can be worn as a regular jacket or with a purpose designed panel to allow you to wear it as a maternity jacket over your bump or baby. Clever!
Little Flock of Horrors
Who doesn’t love a free gift, and who doesn’t love Little Flock of Horrors kids merino. Every purchase of $100 will get you something a little extra, and that’s only a couple of good quality pieces which will last and last.
Fluffy Ducks – Save up to 30% on selected products
Fluffy Ducks (apart from having the cutest name) have a great range of resusable nappies at a great price, including the full set of accessories you’ll need to start you off. They have some excellent low-cost value packs, and combined with 30% off at the Expo, this will be your chance to set yourself up.
Woolbabe by the Sleep Store – save up to 20% on selected products
Woolbabe has the most amazing merino and cotton sleeping bags, sleep suits and sleep wear for babies. They are such a great investment, because apart from lasting through multiple children, your babies will wear them for a lot longer than you imagine. It’s a lifesaver in winter, and for babies that thrash around a lot and toss off the blankets. Their new range is out, and the Ember Wilderness pattern is an all time fave.
Baby on the Move (North Shore) Graco SlimFit – Exclusive to Baby On The Move only $549 save $80
If you don’t now already, Baby On The Move is the go-to place to get your baby capsule and baby car seat fitted. They know what they’re doing and you don’t want to muck around with this important task (many a parent has had a bad fright with the seat coming loose). They also have a great range of car seats, and at the Expo will have $80 off the Graco Slimfit, which is an amazing product.
Kekoa – Save up to 10% on selected products
Kekoa reusable nappies have a nature-inspired range of patterns inspired by New Zealand artists to showcase our amazing environment in Aotearoa. Why didn’t we know about these?! There will be 10% off these little works of art at the Expo, so here’s your chance to have a truly designer-babe… Check out Cove with peach wings. Wowza.
See you there xx
