Bonnie Bairn – Scotland’s Largest Baby and Family Fair

This week has been a busy one for me, not least because my two kids have been off school for their February break. So I took a few days off, and the kids and I went down to Yorkshire to see my parents despite the storm, which meant that our train down there was cancelled!

The rest of the week has been spent getting myself organised for the Bonnie Bairn Fair – I’m one of over 80 exhibitors this year, which will be the biggest pregnancy and family fair in Scotland. It will be held on 1st March from 10.00 – 15.00 at Edinburgh’s Corn Exchange. I’ve been sourcing decorations this week to make my table look inviting and may even have bought my own cuddly Sleepy Lamb to be given away as a prize to someone on the day!

If you’re local to Edinburgh, I recommend coming to the Fair. Not only are there lots of businesses exhibiting on the day, but there are also loads of free taster sessions, activities and talks going on throughout the Fair. These will include everything from taster dance classes, talks on Safer Sleep and hypnobirthing, Spanish lessons for kids and a session on paediatric First Aid. 

There will also be loads of special offers from the exhibitors on the day, and the first 250 families through the door in the morning will get a jam-packed goody bag. You’ll need to be quick to get one of these, though, as they went quickly last year! There will also be an epic Prize Draw on the day with three different bundles to be won – Pregnancy, Baby and Family. The draw is free to enter – all you need to do is attend the Fair to be in with a chance of winning!

I’m proud to be one of the exhibitors at Bonnie Bairn this year and am looking forward to the day. Hopefully, I’ll get a chance to see some of you there – if you do go, please pop by and say hello – you could even win your own Sleepy Lamb!
