If you were one of the thousands of people who headed out the the New York City Baby Show, then you can understand my excitement about being at this fantastic event! Packed with products and seminars for new, expectant, and seasoned parents such as myself, the show definitely lived up to my expectations. From the latest strollers to the fabulous little product called the Windi (I’ll elaborate on this fascinating find further down), the Baby Show gave moms like me a great chance to not only connect, but to also get great demonstrations and samples! This one crazy blogger (me of course!) even got a great feature at the City Grips booth and got to meet the lovely ladies behind one of my favorite products (see the full review in my previous post). So here are some of my fave finds…..
First up, Britax just released their B-Agile double stroller. Similar in design to the City Mini Double, which you guys know I LOVE, the guys at Britax smartly added some great features that are mom must haves. I particularly love the height adjustable handle (not featured on my City Mini Double, although it is on the City Mini GT Double). This is perfect for a family like mine since I am a mere 5 ft. and my husband is 6 ft. I also love the design of the handle, the one bar featured in the middle is perfect for a one handed steering motion.

Next up is a great item for those of you living in smaller spaces. The Stroll Away by MetroTots was a perfect item to feature at the NYC Baby Show! This ingenius item allows you to hang your stroller from any standard door, a perfect storage solution for smaller living spaces! More information can be found at http://www.metrotots.com
Last up is the Windi. This is made by the same people that make the NoseFrida, that nifty little invention that allows you to use your mouth to pull mucous from you baby’s stuffed nosey through the use of a tube. Now I have to admit, when I saw that at my local Buy Buy Baby I was a bit freaked out by the thought of doing that. But the two lovely product specialists at the show gave me a great demo of how that worked and I must admit, I am certainly going to be getting one of those. The Windi, however is for, you guessed it, your baby’s bum! Now if you’re thinking “I certainly am not sucking gas out of my baby’s bum with my mouth!”, don’t worry I thought the same thing. Luckily the product specialists explained that there was no use for my mouth for this one (thank god!). Okay so here’s how it works, you know when your newborn is gassy and they can’t get it out and they’re screaming at the top of they’re lungs for hours and nothing you try seems to work? Well this novel little product is designed to relieve that! The concept is that the soft pliable tube, once inserted into the bum, will pass the muscles that are contracting and holding in the gas, and whalaa the gas is released! Sounds a bit scary, but it’s a great way to naturally relieve gas. More information can be found at http://www.fridababy.com/shop/windi-for-gas-relief
