Mommies-to-be rocking baby bumps, along with mommies, daddies and their babies, battled the heat to participate in the highly anticipated annual event, Big Baby Shower.

Families and friends made their way to ATL Motors on Oxford Road last weekend for a Saturday fun day about all things baby. The first of its kind in Jamaica, Big Baby Shower strikes an incredible balance by catering to both the parents and their beautiful bundles of joy or their adorable tiny tots.

There was an activity for everyone to choose from. Booths on time display provided a variety of services, from investments with Sagicor and Jamaican National to education, with AIM Services and Fundaciones. Smoochies Kids, Swypz+ (for every wipe) and Heinz for Baby handled the needs of the little ones. Bio Oil and Confidence Maternity spoke more to the mothers in attendance, while tents like Simply Halal merged the two by giving almost or seasoned mothers tips on how to prep for their babies.

 

ACTIVITIES

 

Hope Zoo pulled out all the stops, entertaining the crowd with parrot and snake to pet and play. As it related to savoury and sweet treats, snow cones floated throughout the venue in the hands of parched patrons. Tutti Fruity, Welch, lemonade and cookie stands dabbled with the sweet, savoury came into the mix, courtesy of CB pan chicken, while WATA cooled it down and saved the day.

And when the sun was too much to bear, daddies, mommies and babies in tote had the option of taking a break by visiting the mommies corner and kiddies lounge, fully air-conditioned. They even set up a breastfeeding section, too. All in all, Big Baby Shower in the summer was a success.
