The Big City Moms, Biggest Baby Shower is a twice yearly event held in New York City, this year marked my ninth time attending. The Biggest Baby Shower Ever is like no other baby shower you have ever seen. The dynamic BCM team, including co-founders and sister, Risa and Leslie bring together over 100 of the best companies in the baby industry, to showcase all the amazing new and innovative products out there. The best part is the product experts and creators themselves are on site, to answer questions, explain and show attendees the products first hand. It is a one stop shop to test out, touch, feel and get educated on everything you can possibly need for your growing family.
Big City Moms Biggest Baby Shower
Attendees enjoy mingling with other expectant and new parents while sampling sweet treats, mocktails and more in an elegant setting. Play games to win prizes including strollers, high chairs, diaper bags, car seats, bedding, bibs, clothing, decor and much more. Plus, everyone goes home with a huge gift bag filled with full size products, samples and coupons from the sponsoring baby companies.
Tons of my favorite brands and products were on display at the event, but this year I decided to highlight five of 2015 best new baby products found at the Big City Moms, Biggest Baby Shower.
Best new baby products of 2015
Keekaroo cafe booster: Keekaroo liquid upholstery is soft to the touch, water repellent, puncture resistant, non toxic, easy to clean and BPA free. You really need to touch this booster seat to know how soft it is, and because the Keekaroo is so soft it is extremely comfortable for toddlers to sit on. The Cafe Booster seat is a great option for toddlers who have outgrown highchairs but still needs a little help reaching the table. The straps let you attach it to most dining chairs, and a skid-resistant bottom keeps it in place. $60
Kinsa Thermometer: The worlds smartest thermometer. This innovative thermometer uses a smartphone’s display, power, and processor to determine a precise temperature reading. It takes about 10 seconds for Kinsa to arrive at an accurate temperature reading, perfect for sick, squirmy little kids. The best part is the Kinsa app lets us create different profiles for each user in our family. The app then records fever and symptoms allowing me to create an illness history with notes and photos. $30Cosatto Supa Stroller: This popular baby gear brand out of Europe is making a color splash into the US market with their first stroller release, the Supa. The unique patters caught my eye immediately, love the flamingo fling! The Supa is lightweight with an aluminum frame and attached carry handle. It has a compact umbrella fold with auto-lock, and a free-standing fold feature. The Supa’s big selling point is the multimedia gadget pocket, with in-stroller speaker, allowing your kid to watch and listen to their in-hood entertainment while out and about. Plus everything you could possibly want comes included with the purchase price. $400 Doona infant car seat stroller: Was created to transform the infant car seat into something safe yet simple and practical. The Doona is a car seat stroller all-in-one, yes, you read that correctly and it transforms in seconds (check out my vine below) cool right!? Seriously the ultimate solution for parents on-the-go and a traveling family. Plus anyone who lives in NYC, and struggles with the idea of taking an infant in a taxi can rest assure that the Doona meets all car seat and stroller safety standards. I know I will be seeing a ton of these Doona car seat strollers here in the near future. $500
Newton crib mattress: With no foam, latex or adhesives, Newton is hypoallergenic, free of off gassing and completely washable mattress. You Can throw the mattress into the shower to clean it! Completely wash away mold and bacteria for a fresher, more hygienic crib. The Newton crib mattress is made of Wovenaire, a technology invented in Japan that is 90% air by volume so totally breathable. The mattress was so soft to touch, they now need to make an adult size. $295What best new baby product, from the Biggest Baby Shower, are you most excited about?
