Expo Moms at Rockwell: A Belated Mother's Day Treat

From diaper bags to breast-feeding clothes--today's moms need and want a lot of stuff to help them in their daily lives.

For the third straight year, Expo Mom, a lifestyle event, will gather under one roof the latest, best and most interesting stuff for moms including newly launched and hard-to-find products.

To be held on May 23 at the Rockwell Tent, this year's Expo Mom Year 3 will have as theme "The Mompreneur Market" and will highlight the expo's advocacy to promote mommy-owned "mompreneur" businesses. Organizers of this event also recently launched their mompreneur network called Mompreneur Manila.

Moms can take part in activities at the stage area and bring their kids to special activities.

And since motherhood is about giving, moms will be given a chance to share their blessings by dropping off used baby clothes and shoes, baby equipment, maternity clothes, and any other items at the MomShare crib by the entrance. These items will be donated to other moms in need.

Expo Mom Year 3 is organized by Mommy Mundo and presented by Mommy Matters and the Philippine Association for Childbirth Education with support from GlaxoSmithkline, Johnson's Baby, Stemcord cordblood banking, Cycles Mild Laundy Detergent, Cradles, RCBC Savings Bank, and the Lifestyle Network.

Personally, I didn't like a previous Expo Mom event because they didn't let in other brands, like Blissfulbabes, because they're a direct competitor of Mommy Matters in nursing wear. Of course I'd rather mommies have more options when they go to something like an Expo Mom. Sort of like a Wedding Expo where everything is just really there.

Still, I am sure that families will enjoy the activities and the freebies. I am also sure that there will be a lot of important topics helpful to parents and there is usually a breastfeeding/changing area so mothers need not worry about that. And am sure they'd have a field day going through all the racks of clothing there, for moms and babies. Moms can even go exchange birthing stories with other moms, from the time they first felt the contyractions and whether a pulse oximeter was used on them or not.

Chances are, products are also sold in discounted rates... or with freebies. So make sure to mark your calendars and go. Let this be a belated Happy Mother's Day for the Mommy of the family.
