Last weekend, Family Media Holdings LLC held the 3rd Annual Chicago Baby Show at the Navy Pier in Chicago; and, once again, Momtrends was a part of it. We brought our mom-influencer friends together for a morning of connecting and trend spotting, and we want to share our 2019 Chicago Baby Show #CHBSBlogger recap. It was awesome to be a part of this event that welcomes thousands of families from the Chicagoland Area, making it Chicago’s largest consumer event for new and expectant families.
Influencers and show guests explored hundreds of booths offering a mix of top products and services for pregnant mamas, babies, and toddlers. There were also amazing speakers, including bestselling author, and Twiniversity (the #1 resource & support network for parents of twins) Founder Natalie Diaz as the Keynote Speaker both days.
2019 Chicago Baby Show Momtrends Top Picks
Our own trendspotter, Sherri, made the rounds at the show too. She shared her top three “mom trends” with us.

2. Thule bike seats for adventure: Thule child bike seats are ideal for the daily commute or for family adventures. Safe, easy to use, and comfortable whether the ride is short or long.
3. Baby Brezza: This cleaver food-prep device steams and blends baby food. Say adios to jars of baby food. This makes prepping Baby's meals a breeze.

Spiked Apple Cider Pops
September in the South is, in my opinion, still summer. The eighties and nineties always prevail and make the traditional fall flavors that I crave so much slightly out of reach. As much as I want to relax and sip on some hot cider, at the moment, I still need something iced. ...read more

More Parenting Trends from the 2019 Chicago Baby Show
It was hard to narrow down our favorites to just three things, we also loved Honest’s new lipgloss for moms.
The cool offerings from Pottery Barn Kids also caught our eye, how fun that parents can get a free design consultation!
Since all the parents we know live an on-the-go lifestyle, we just have to mention the Larktale Chit Chat Stroller. Larktale’s Chit Chat stroller has a unique lightweight design that folds flat. It's a total upgrade from the umbrella strollers of yore. The ergonomic SpaceFrame™ makes use of recycled materials and is easy to carry and store.
In addition to getting to test out all the latest gear, families could use MyRegistry.com to get organized. MyRegistry is the premier destination for universal gift registry services, giving users the ability to create one centralized registry for their baby showers. Guests could use the MyRegistry app to turn their iPhone or Android into a barcode.
