Ostensibly this was to browse the wide range of baby-related products on offer and check out the latest developments in the field of birthing technology.
Actually, it was of course to take some stupid photos I could make snide comments about on this blog.
I did also test drive some pushchairs. It seems to me that buying a pushchair is just as important and complicated as buying a car, only more expensive.
Do I need adjustable handles? How many wheels? What about a reversible seat? Why do all these catalogues bang on about pushchairs which go "off-road", as if I am planning to wheel my baby up mountains and across the African savannah, instead of along pavements and round Lewisham Iceland?
I just want a pushchair that won't do things to my child's fingers which mean I end up on television in tears, being handed a tissue by Lynn Faulds Wood.
Anyway, here are the photos and the snide comments.
My instinct here was to keep the baby as far away from me as possible. If mine comes out like this I'm pushing it back in.
I doubt I'll be going to any more baby shows in the near future. Unless they're actual shows with babies doing musical numbers and acrobatic tricks and stuff.
