If you’re planning on attending the show, please be sure to bring any loose, opened or even new packages of diapers and donate them to the show charityThe Diaper Bank (drop them off in the pack n’ play at show entrance) and help babies whose families are in need.


 Tickets for the Babytime show can be purchased online or in person (cash only in person).


Handy tips for first timers:

  • There is an ATM onsite but the line up can get long. Some retailers in the show will accept credit or debit transactions, but not all do.
  • Be sure to get a bag when you enter the show- there are usually attendants at the show entrance handing them out. You’ll need them for the TONS of freebies, samples and info you get!
  • There is a stroller valet to get up the escalator, but if you don’t need it, it may be easier to leave it at home.
  • There is a designated area for nursing mothers- I enjoyed using it when I brought by baby to the show with me last year.

I founded Mums 'n Chums in 2009 after realizing that the area I live in was drastically underserviced as compared to surrounding areas for support and activities for growing families. Mums 'n Chums grew popular very quickly and I have been dedicated to nurturing that growth through frequent networking, social media engagement and in person meetups. By the end of its first year, Mums 'n Chums had close to 500 members and was receiving regular inquiries from fans outside of its service area, asking when we would be expanding to serve them as well. After much careful research and polling, I expanded the site in May of 2011 to cover the entire North end of the GTA (from Cambridge to Markham), areas I believe are still receiving far less attention than they deserve from other sites and family services. We also changed the focus from small scale local mom and tot meetups to more of an informative purpose, closing down our forum and adding several talented contributors to the blog. We do still offer several large scale family events per year, such as our popular Birthday Bash events and our Holiday Bash in December. Our contests have also become a member favourite, and we strive to offer amazing prizes from trusted brands like Babies R Us, La Roche Posay, Johnson's Baby and many more. In March of 2016, after months of work spent migrating all of the site's content to a new platform, Mums 'n Chums re-launched with its fresh, new look. The changes and expansion have proven a great success and we're still getting inquiries from several other cities within the Greater Toronto Area, whom we have decided to serve as well. I have built this site and its' reputation carefully and look forward to continuing its growth!
