Boppy has grown as a company since the premiere of its original, highly successful Boppy® Feeding and Infant Support Pillow. This innovative pillow was designed for nursing moms, but also can be used as a support pillow for babies learning to sit up on their own. Boppy has greatly expanded its line to include a wide variety of baby gear, including its newest offering, the Boppy Luxe Shopping Cart Cover.
Boppy will be at the 2017 Chicago Baby Show, on August 26 and 27, at Navy Pier, when the nation’s largest show for expectant and new families comes to Chicagoland. A family-friendly mega-event featuring everything to do with maternity, baby, and toddler – from top products to trusted parenting experts – the Chicago Baby Show will welcome thousands of expectant and new parents from Chicago, the surrounding suburbs, and beyond!
Tickets to the Chicago Baby Show are $30 per family, and $20 per individual.
