Big City Moms 35th Biggest Baby Shower Fab Four Picks

I haven't been to a baby-related media event in, like, forever! Once I stopped using the lightweight stroller for Aiden (because his on-the-go mid-day naps became nonexistent), I figured we were out of the baby stage. And I've been declining offers to attend baby-related events ever since.

Until now.

With Baby August five-months-old, growing, blossoming, and interacting with his environment, I need to know what's what in the baby care department. And, since I've been out of the loop for the past four years or so, I need to play "catch up" in the baby gear department.

That's why I was excited to attend The Biggest Baby Shower hosted by Big City Moms. Not only was it a chance to chat with some of my NYC Blogger pals (hey Kristin!), but it was also a great way for me to see the latest and greatest in all things baby gear. In no particular order, here are my top faves:

Organics Happy Family
Their Clearly Crafted pouches of baby food?! I'm here for it! August will be turning six months soon and it'll be time for him to experience his first taste of solids, and I love the idea of buying baby food in packaging that's transparent. I got a taste of their Apples, Pumpkin, and Carrots, and it was kinda delicious for baby food! #ImJustSaying

As stated on their website, "It's premium organic foods that offers the best possible nutrition for growing babies." Can I get a "yum"?!

Baby Bjorn's High Chair
Okay... so I'm kind of obsessed with this here high chair! It's safe (the high chair makes it harder to stand up or push legs against a table and fall backwards), it has an ergonomic design (the curved backrest helps the little one to sit up and can be adjusted as the babe grows), it can be folded up and takes up minimal space (with a small NYC apartment, need I say more?!), and it's easy to clean (yes, I actually tested it out).

I've got to get my hands on it so August and I can give it a more in-depth review!

Baby Zen YoYo Stroller
A lightweight stroller that literally folds up into the size of a diaper bag?! Three words: Sign. Me. Up! Not only does it offer convenience for parents on-the-go, but it also offers loads of comfort for babies and toddlers. The stroller also offers a sun canopy, a curved handlebar for one-handed steering, and a shoulder strap for shoulder carrying. As August becomes more mobile, I'm going to need a lightweight stroller that folds up nicely and doesn't take up too my space in my small apartment that I can easily manage on the subway, and umm, the YoYo is  definitely a top contender!

By the way, Aiden got to test it out with Baby August in it and they both approve -- it was a very smooth ride!

Gift of Gab
Now, y'all know I couldn't do a round-up without including dope apparel for the babies, right?!

In true Mommy Delicious fashion, one of the first tables that the boys and I visited was Gift of Gab. Because, fashion... hello! Their pieces are hand painted and made with gluten-free non-toxic ink. And it's straight up dope. (I said that already. It's that dope!)

But Gift of Gab is more than just first-words apparel. Based in NYC and Long Island, they are a group of speech language pathologists that provides clients with home-based therapeutic treatment or the option of Telespeech from the comfort of their own home. They also provide screenings, evaluations, and consultations. Fashion and child-development... two things that are near and dear to me!

Thanks so much to Big City Moms for hosting the 35th Biggest Baby Shower! It was a huge success and I'm so happy that the boys and I got to check it out! Can't wait for the next one!
