We are huge fans of The Baby Show and some of you may know already that we are regular visitors. The last 5 years have thrown some amazing Baby Shows at us, whether attending London’s Excel, Birmingham NEC or the London Olympia show. Back in March, we took a trip to the London Excel Baby Show where we announced our pregnancy with baby number 4.

I wonder what surprise we shall throw at you from the Birmingham show… hmmmm, I wonder 😉

The Baby Show is a great way to get hands on and try before you buy. Brand and product experts will be on hand all weekend to tell you everything you need to know and dish out some expert advice, so it’s a great opportunity to compare products and find the right fit for you. There will be over 200 exhibitors showcasing a huge array of essential baby products from trusted brands as well as the latest innovations. All the major baby retailers will be there, alongside market leading brands such as iCandy, Stokke, UppaBaby, Chicco, Britax, MAM, Nuby, Mothercare and Italian brand Peg Perego!  There will also be independent brands that you won’t find on the high street. And once you’ve shopped until you’ve dropped, don’t worry about all the carrying as you can take advantage of the free Emma’s Diary Collect-By-Car service where you can drop off all your purchases and continue until you’ve got a carful.


There will be a wonderful line up of speakers on The Baby Show Stage with MadeForMums including experts from the world of breastfeeding, sleep and nutrition! Some of my personal favourite not-to-miss highlights include those by the British Red Cross talking about infant first aid, Milli Hill discusses birth positivity and confidence, and if you plan on taking smaller kids with you why not book them into the FREE crèche for some stress free shopping?

COMPETITION: Win A Star with Star Name Registry

I have a superb and unique competition for you all today, and I’m really excited!! are offering you the chance to win your very own star, personalised to exactly your wishes. This one off, official and unique prize is not to be missed.

Our Stars


At Christmas my Father-In-Law got the girls a star each as their Christmas gift. I cried and cried and cried. This was such a beautiful idea and something that was a completely new gift idea for me. The girls are still little, but Willow understood exactly what it meant; Grandad had bought her a star for Christmas. Her very own star, that was hers forever. My 3 daughters all have their very own special place in the most beautiful thing known to man… the sky.

I had a superb idea that I would like to name a star after my husband, as an extra special gift for him. But then I realised that I felt left out as every member of the family would have their own star… except for me :'( So, I had a better idea (and a slightly selfish one!) I would name a star to celebrate the marriage of Jay and myself. Now, that was cool!


I couldn’t wait until our wedding anniversary which is all the way in December to present the gift to him (also I had this competition to host!) so when the post-man arrived with a parcel last Saturday, I knew exactly what it was in the package and I let him open it. This time it was his turn to cry!

I ordered the Extra Bright Star package, Which comes in a gorgeous presentation box with lovely wooden roses and leaflets that explain exactly what our star is, where it is and what it all means. The gift was beautiful and absolutely perfect. The official certificate also arrives in a lovely silver frame too, which makes it ready to display. We went out and purchased some silver frames for our other certificates so that they all matched and would look amazing hung together on the landing wall.

My personal message: You are what happened, when I wished upon a star.

About Star Name Registry

Star-Name-Registry is an easy to use website where you can name a star visible in the UK for someone special. Naming a star is as easy as filling in a short form and then waiting for your pack in the post. When you purchase a star, you star will be logged into the official star name registry record. No star will ever be named twice and you can rest assured that the star is unique to you.

Naming a star is easy. You simply choose what package you would like to buy, what your choice of name shall be for the star, a memorable date, which constellation you would like your star to be in and a personalised message. Filling out the form took a few minutes (I had a browse through the constellations and their meanings for a while) and double checked my spelling!

All star packs are sent out same day via first class delivery, by Royal Mail for FREE if placed before 2:45pm. Expect 1-3 working days for stars to arrive. You can choose guaranteed next day delivery too, but there is an extra charge for this.

A standard star package costs just £14.99 for entry into the star registry, an A4 certificate of authentication, sky atlas star maps and a confirmation letter. My Extra Bright Star package above costs £44.99 and includes registry, framed A4 certificate, silver presentation box, blue tissue paper, confirmation letter, Star maps atlas, your extra bright star gift explained.

There are 6 different packages to choose from so there really is a perfect gift for everyone to suit all budgets.


Star-name-registry have given me the chance to treat my readers to a very special prize. You could win your very own star, logged on the star registry, an A4 certificate and constellation map. You can choose to name your star after whoever you like (or name it whatever you like!) and would make the perfect birthday, anniversary or even a memorial gift for someone special.
