Win Tickets to The Baby Show – at the NEC Birmingham 2015

One thing I wish I’d done more of when I was pregnant was get more exercise…

Na, just kidding.

I wish I’d scored more freebies! I was crap at collecting my Bounty packs and didn’t bother going to any baby events which I massively regret now. Baby shows are great for checking out all the must have products coming out and chatting to people with more experience than you, particularly if this is your first baby – you’ll need all the help you can get 😉

So to help you get stuck in where I failed, the lovely people at The Baby Show are offering two pairs of tickets for the annual show at the NEC in Birmingham…they also asked if I wanted to go but the thought of taking my whingy, teething baby all the way from the South Coast to Birmingham makes my blood run cold. All the better for you then, dear readers.

If you’re expecting or have just had a baby this will be the perfect day out for you – especially since Kiddicare went and closed a load of its shops making it very tricky to try out and view a good selection of baby products before buying (I’m still bitter). PLUS those magic two words… *show discounts*. Nuff said.

So what are you waiting for? Enter through the Rafflecopter below!
