NAK

We had a good time - DS1 won the "Chicco Rodeo" and I got to try out the Medela Symphony pump in the nursing lounge. Lots of samples, though not as many as 2 years ago.

We went and had a good time. I needed to nurse and Medella had a nice nursing station set up with comfy chairs and sofas. The nursing station also had an IBCLC who gave me a free Medella bottle! That was the best freebie by far. I use those bottles as I pump breastmilk while I am at work. I think the bottles run 5 or 6 bucks each at Target.

The only thing that disappointed me was a booth offering FLU SHOTS. We steered clear of that general area.

We went home with a big bag full of freebies (dipes, wipes, lotions, etc).
