Lupilu, which is Lidl’s award-winning baby range, is delighted to be on board as the title sponsor of the The Pregnancy & Baby Fair Product Awards.

Fiona Fagan, Deputy Head of Marketing with Lidl, says: “Lidl are delighted to partner with The Pregnancy and Baby Fair for this fantastic awards programme.  We thoroughly understand what new parents want from a baby range and that’s why the entire Lupilu baby range has seen significant growth in popularity due to the quality of our products as well as the incredible savings. In a 2020 Irish survey, Lupilu nappies were given a 4.4 star rating by Irish parents and if you switch to our award-winning Lupilu nappies from a leading brand, you could SAVE €1,012* in your baby’s first three years.  We’re really looking forward to working closely with the great team behind The Pregnancy and Baby Fair and delivering special offers and news to their loyal audience.”

Co-founded by Claire Finnan and Jennifer Shaw over a decade ago, the biannual Pregnancy & Baby Fair is now a highly anticipated occasion that gets bigger and better every year. It offers exclusive access to hundreds of Ireland’s leading retailers and product specialists as well as the world’s biggest baby brands. A range of Ireland’s top pregnancy, baby and healthcare professionals are also available to give the best and latest advice on a wide range of pregnancy and parenting related topics.

Claire and Jennifer first came to national attention on Dragons Den, where they went down in history as the first ever candidates to secure backing from all five Dragons for their exciting exhibition idea, The Pregnancy & Baby Fair. After the phenomenal success of the first Pregnancy & Baby Fair in 2010, Claire and Jen bought out all five Dragons

Jennifer Shaw, Co-Founder of The Pregnancy & Baby Fair, says the awards scheme is a natural evolution of their brand: “After 12 years of running The Pregnancy & Baby Fair, we know everything there is to know about being an expectant or new parent. We also know that every parent has their preferred product and brand – for whatever reason – and we’re delighted to now be able to offer these parents and caregivers the opportunity to vote for their favourite. We can’t wait to see what the results are. We’re also delighted to have Lidl’s award-winning Lupilu baby range on board for our inaugural awards and look forward to developing a great partnership with them in the years ahead.”
