Dropping by the Expo Mom Davao 2018

Yuri and I were at the Expo Mom last weekend!

I have been dropping by Expo Mom bazaars ever since they had their first one here in Davao back in 2014. (Here’s a link from my old blog!) Also another one from 2016. Apparently, I missed the 2015 leg, and while I was able to visit last year, I don’t think I was able to write about it.

Back in 2014, Yuri was just 2 years old and I was a very excited young mom. During the first Expo Mom Davao, I recall that there were not as many booths and sellers as there are now. However, I was still able to buy a few things for Yuri (because I was admittedly a shopaholic then hehe), including Human Nature stuff because they were not locally available during that time, a “Cool Science Experiments” book which is really cool, a Kiele bug repellent, and Oreo butter!

Then in 2016, I bought even more mosquito repellent products (teehee), books, castor oil, and chocolates.

This year, I was invited by the Mommy Mundo team to drop by the Expo Mom Davao 2018, which is great because I was really planning on going. Woot!

With my Motts-loving first-grader! <3

What I noticed is that it seems like more booths participate every year — awesome! But Yuri is already 6 years old now and I saw that most of the booths do cater to babies and toddlers. It is not a bad thing of course since there are always babies, toddlers, and expectant mommies around, but I have to admit that maybe we’re not the target audience of these expos anymore! Unless, of course, new older kid-oriented vendors decide to join next year 😉

But I’m not complaining! I still had a grand time looking around the Expo Mom. Here were the things that caught my eye!

As for me, all I bought were a tub of honey and a bottle of calamansi concentrate, but I’m happy with my finds! ^_^

In comparison to the previous years, I think there were more breastfeeding-friendly products and supplements available during this year’s Expo Mom. Regular vendors like Sun Life and Sanicare were still there; there were also the usual *adorbs* baby and toddler clothes, coco sugar/honey/cacao/calamansi products, feeding products, beauty products, and *gasp* pretty accessories. I also saw experience-oriented services like baby photography and a mobile playpen, which looked really interesting!

Conversely, I think there were fewer educational books and toys this time around (like I said, most booths were baby and toddler-targeted). While there were still food products available, I saw a lack of ready-to-eat food like the ice cream from last year and the chocolates from the other year. There were cookies sold but were especially made for lactating women — which I am obviously not LOL.

With that said, there are still plenty of reasons to check out Expo Mom! If you’re pregnant, breastfeeding, have a baby, or a toddler, there are LOTS of amazing finds for you right there. And even if you’re a mom with a “big” kid like me, there’s always something nice to see and buy at the expo.

If you missed this year’s expo, absolutely make sure to drop by next year!
