Hi everyone , So I was really excited about going to the baby expo being a first time mum by the end I was greatly disappointed . I was advised that it was something that would greatly help me in my new journey as a mum . So to start off im glad the tickets were free cause I wouldn't of paid $20 for ticket , as I drove 1 hour plus to get to the CBD plus parking , lunch etc etc I didn't see the value of paying $20 so it was good that it was for free . Once receiving my pink bag full of pamphlets and Medibank wipes I entered an overcrowded line the stalls were set up fine but the saucing between made it hard to observe and unless you were buying you were kinda pushed to the next stand .On entrance they had alot of the smaller things you could buy which I felt should have been towards the back or the end after everyone had seen the talks , and other larger shopping times like prams . But instead as soon as you got in there was a mad rush to buy making the start of the expo tiring as shoppers rushed to grab small items , which really were that cheap , I was really waning to buy a baby swaddle but I still felt it was overpriced and I could get it cheaper online . After the first line the second/third line had rocking chairs , prams , changing stands etc All I can say was for a working class person like myself I couldn't afford anything there was nothing around the $500 mark in prams or changing stands , it was more for upper class market or people willing to pay $1000 plus I could even afford pregnancy support pants I really liked cause I justify spending $200 on pants that would only be used once and most likely only last a season . So after coming to the conclusion I couldn't buy anything at the expo and really it for people who had at-least $1000 on them to spend or knew they were out for a boutique prams or rocking chair etc etc I thought maybe the talks would have been good , so heading over to the talks . Once again they were positioned in the middle of the expo which made it more crowded , unless you were attending to go straight talks there was no way you could get inside the tent , I get it would have been best is the had them towards the end without the barriers , so seeing one of the talks was impossible . I guess this wasn't the expo for me oh and there was absolutely no freebies besides the odd face cream mini tube , just a-lot of pamphlets and a free bag . When coming home the pamphlets were basically to buy boutique products and no real information for mothers and fathers to be besides the government safe kids guide . I wouldn't recommend this to anyone on a budget , or working class , or new mothers .
