Some two years ago, I was a desperate wife trying to get pregnant. My husband and I were trying everything we can to conceive. I was sooooo ready to be a mom. I just needed a baby. (More on our experience on conceiving in a separate post). But as everything happens in God's time, on the month of February 2011, that white pregnancy test kit finally showed two lines! I couldn't be happier!
Soon after double confirming with the doctor and announcing to our families the great news, a big realization hit me...
I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT TAKING CARE OF BABIES!
Panic mode! I have never had to take care of an infant (be it a sibling or niece or nephew) in my life. This would be the first time. Luckily I have 2 wonderful sister-in-laws who are already moms and of course my Mother-in-law who are readily available to give me tips.
But I felt I still had to be on the look-out for places where I can buy stuff for babies and moms to be. As a first-time clueless mom, it was important for me to be able to go to one place where I can already see all the latest must-haves that I could possibly need. So every time there was a baby bazaar I made sure I would attend.

How about you? Are you with child? Clueless like I was? You can relax a bit now because a huge baby expo is happening on December! It's the Baby Expo Philippines 2013 - Welcoming Life, Love, and Care! It's the country's biggest family expo that is dedicated to nurture family development and child care. Everything you will ever need and more for taking care of your family all under one roof (or under one convention center for that matter hehe). It will house over 200 participating brands to be held on December 6-8, 2013 at the SMX Convention Center Manila, Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City. (Aha! Perfect for the 13th month pay hehehe!)
Enjoy up to 80% discount from over 200 exhibitors so you can shop 'till you drop. (The "till you drop" applies to dads of expectant moms okay? Soon-to-be-moms, your job is to just point at what you like hahaha)
In those three days, guests will not only be able to shop but they can also attend helpful seminars and talks that are geared towards children's health, as well as security, safety, and of course education, and more. And while mommies and daddies sit and listen to these talks by professionals, the children can indulge themselves in kiddie activities that are not only fun but educational as well. Joyful learning!
Moms who are into fashion will for sure have a blast with the Baby Fashion Weekend. It's the first in the country. Watch preggy moms, mom-daughter, dad-son, etc strut down the runway in stylish clothes made by the top designers and brands of the country.
You can also witness the Sayaw Baby and Baby Olympics 2013 wherein parents can show off their nappy changing skills, Sandie Awards where celebrity families / entrepreneurs are featured and recognized through the Golden Family Awards, and ParentPreneur Awards. You can also see who will be crowned the #BibongBaby of the Year.
According to MediaCom Solutions Inc. President and Baby Expo Philippines founder David Abrenilla, “The BABY EXPO PH is an event for the entire family, expecting parents as well as relatives and friends to enjoy and spend quality time together through the fun-filled activities we lined up.”
