IT was babies galore at a packed Nadi Civic Centre as a total of 95 children registered for the Digicel Bula Festival's annual Johnson & Johnson baby show.

Despite the congestion, organisers commended the support shown by doting fathers and extended family members who accompanied their tiny participants.

Savendra Dayal, the managing director of the brand's local manufactures, Healthcare Products International, said they continued to sponsor such events because of their commitment to mothers and their status as a household name.

"We've been sponsoring baby shows throughout the country for many years, including the Sugar and Hibiscus festivals and have become synonymous with these events for babies" he said.

Four categories were contested for those aged one to five months, six to eight months, nine to eleven months and one to three years.

These were won respectively by Adila Siddiqah, Israel Ken Kamali, Preyashi Sharma and Kayden Setareki Ford.

Like his fellow winners, little Kayden, 2, seemed oblivious to the excitement surrounding his achievement but happily collected his prize.

His mother Tokasa Ford said it was his second entry into a baby show and they were excited about his win.
