I want to say that I am writing this on the eve of my daughters 4th birthday. It's appropriate, because I am nostalgic for everything we have been through. Coraline is my first born, so when I was pregnant with her 4 years ago, I spent 10 months researching the best of the best of everything. That is just what you do when you are pregnant with your first.
Then I became a blogger.
When I was pregnant with Arya, I was so surprised at how many things had changed in just 2 years since my last baby. The best of the best was now better. New companies. New designs. The market is constantly improving. It's amazing. It's insanely overwhelming if you are pregnant.
Lucky for me...I'm a blogger. I actually get to stay up to date on whats new or hot right now in all things parenting. Right now, it's Gearapalooza from Bump Club and Beyond and BabyGuyNYC. If you are expecting or a new parent, these are definitely two names you should familarize yourself with. Jamie Grayson aka BabyGuyNYC is amazing and hillarious.
Even though my babies are turning 2 and 4, pretty much as we speak; I jumped at the chance to go to Gearapalooza. The event takes place on September 17th at Magic Beans in Wellsley.
Why should you go?
"You’ll learn what to register for, hear about the hottest new gear every new parent needs, and have all of your questions answered. Every stop on the Gearapalooza Tour is filled with THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS in giveaways from our sponsors and EVERYONE goes home with a gift bag FILLED with necessities for your life as a new parent. Make sure to check out our Platinum Ticket Option at each stop, which includes a Beco Gemini Baby Carrier!"
Purchase a Platinum Ticket for $100 and go home with a Gift Bag worth $150 and a Beco Baby Carrier worth $130 (that's basically like buying a Beco on sale and going home with a gift bag)
BabyGuyNYC will be there to get down and dirty with all your questions about baby carries, strollers, car seats. . . if you have a question this is the guy you want to hear from. It's an amazing opportunity for a one on one.
