So… you’ve got a kid on the way and have worked out — or rather, found out from us — that you need $285,468 just to raise it.

Siao liao,” you wonder, “how sia…”

Thankfully, there are these things called baby fairs where you can get a pretty good deal on baby essentials.

If you’re a mother or father-to-be…

Or if you know a friend who’s looking to stock up on supplies before their bundle of joy arrives.

Then you’ll want to find out which are the best baby fairs in 2020!

And most importantly, how to survive them.

Because according to my friends who’ve been, it’s like a competitive sport on its own.

What Kind of Lazada Redmart Prosperous Baby Fair Deals Can I Expect?

This is technically not a baby fair if we’re defining it as cavernous halls where people snap up baby essentials faster and battle it out for the best deals — or so I’m told by my friends who’ve visited.

But the beauty of online shopping is that you can do so from the comfort of your home.

This is extremely important especially if you’re heavily pregnant or loathe fighting the crowds at baby fairs.

At the Prosperous Baby Fair, you can get up to 50% off all baby-related products like diapers, milk formula, food, and essentials.

On top of that, there’re also:

  • Buy-2-add-1 free deals for baby personal care, food, clothing & accessories, and toys
  • Brand days for discounts off brands like Friso baby formula and Merries diapers
  • Multibuy deals where for example, you can get three tins of Friso Gold Stage 3 Growing-Up Baby Formula and save $20

(Side note: baby formulas are RIDICULOUSLY expensive, so any deal is a good deal.)

It’s pretty much like the 11.11 Sales, but for baby stuff.

Tickets are $15 at the door, but if you get them online, they’re currently going for $8.

How to Survive a Baby Fair?

Although I haven’t been to one personally, I have peeked into a couple just out of curiosity and it’s… MAYHEM.

Guy Attempting To Crowdsurf But Fails

Okay, there won’t be people attempting to crowd surf.

But you get my point.

If you’re a first-time parent attending your first baby fair, here are some tips which I got from my friends who have survived them:

Leave Your Pram and Baby at Home

Your pram (or stroller) is probably too big to comfortably manoeuvre around and down the aisles.

No matter how huge the convention hall might be.

Also, no one will give way to you and you’ll probably be worried about your baby getting hit in the face by the deluge of shoppers with their shopping bags and boxes.

It’ll also probably suck extra hard when you have to pacify a screaming baby while waiting in line for an hour to pay for your purchases.

Protip: take down your child’s clothes size and other relevant measurements before heading down.

Strategise Your Purchase

Download the official baby fair brochure or magazine as they usually come with vouchers and a map to help you identify which booths to visit and which deals to get first!

If you find yourself buying the entire booth, always ask if they provide delivery service.

This is usually provided for free with a minimum purchase and is particularly useful for transporting bulky items like diapers and tins of baby formula.

The last thing you want to do is lug around 10 tins of formula after getting them for a steal.

Oh, when buying diapers in bulk, buy them in multiple sizes as babies will outgrow them really quickly.

Go On The Last Day

Many baby fairs dangle goodie bags and early-bird promos, which encourage mothers to hit the fairs early.

This is also when the location will reach critical mass.

To avoid sweaty shoppers and the chaos of everyone clamouring for the best deals, why not try going on the last day?

Especially when it’s about two to three hours to closing time.

The crowds should be lesser.

And this is when booths (not all of them though) will start hourly sales and massive reductions to clear stock.

If you’re afraid that the bigger brands might be sold out, don’t worry as they’ll regularly replenish finished stocks.

Unless it’s a once-in-a-lifetime deal like 90% off a $2,000 Cybex Priam Frame with Lux Seat — then it might be worth braving the crowds on the first day for it.
