    Default Worth going to Brisbane Baby Expo?

    Anyone know if its worth going to the upcoming Brisbane Baby Expo? Are there good deals there or is it better to wait for regular sales (end of financial year sales)?

    What kind of stuff are you after? There usually are sales, and deals. A lot of people complain about the pram jams and so on. If you had something specific in mind you could probably find out if they were having a sale by looking at the exhibitor sneak peek thing on the PBC expo website (can also get a free ticket there)

    It was super busy but I enjoyed it last year. Got a fantastic deal on a snuza brand video monitor and breathing monitor. They are well over $300 in the shops and I got it for $170 at the show. There were some other bargains but you could maybe get them at sale time at the shops.
    But here's a list of below shop price bargains I got. .
    Snuza monitor
    Sleeping bags
    Baby swimming togs
    Nappy bin
    Some bottles
    Pram blankets and sheets

    Don't go if you don't like crowds!!!!

    I went last year for the first time and while I didn't think a lot if the sales were awesome or relevant to me, I did meet some other great mums and this time we are all going as a group! (Yeah now we'll be pram-jammers instead of awkward first time mummies haha)

    I did get some swaddle bags on sale though and some good samples and info.
