Being a mom is tough. Life starts to throw you numerous curve balls from the time your baby is born. In addition to the growing pains, you struggle with learning everything to keep your child alive, finding gadgets that will help you survive parenthood, and keeping your child entertained. Ideally, you can do all of this on a dime!

When I heard about the Calgary Baby & Tot Show, I was intrigued but I wasn't sure about attending it because the thought of going with my toddler terrifies me. I asked one of my closest friends about the show and she raved about it and said:

  • SPECIAL GUESTS - Paw Patrol, Little Charmers, Star Wars, Disney Princesses including Anna and Elsa from Frozen! Her daughters loved meeting their idols in person. Definitely kept them entertained and allowed her to stay at the show for longer.

  • PLAY ZONES - Designed to accommodate all ages from toddler to even the active young schoolers. One to check out for sure are the Gymboree Play & Music classes, where kids enjoy songs, bubbles, and all time favourite parachute time!

  • MOM FRIENDLY - Lots of tables and chairs to sit down to rest. This is a must when kids need some quiet time or snack time. For really new moms, there are special designated nursing and diaper changing areas! Don't have to worry about lining up in a crowded bathroom.

  • INFORMATIVE - The seminars are informative if you are looking to educate yourself and up your parenting game. Excellent topics to explore are: breast feeding 101, baby wearing, and sleep strategies. There are also seminars to help moms get back into their pre-pregnancy body too!

  • FREE SWAG - All the information and samples you can possibly need for everything.

My reaction: You had me at Anna and Elsa. I'm so going to this show.
