Don't Miss Brooklyn's First Ever Baby Expo
Whether you have a baby, toddler or are still experiencing the pregnancy glow, head to the first ever, A Child Grows in Brooklyn Baby Expo to learn everything you need to know about raising a kid in this crazy city. We've got the info here for you to find out how to join the other parents at the spectacular Toren penthouses in downtown Brooklyn for need-to-know workshops, shopping for the hottest new gear, awesome raffles where you can win some serious swag (think, Uppababy strollers and Stokke highchairs) and also attend some great parenting seminars. Other fun goodies like manicures and blowouts for the ladies as well as activities for the babies will be on offer. Did I mention the first 250 registrants get a pretty cool gift bag and everyone receives a free subscription to Time Out NY Kids? Sure wish this was around when I was pregnant. Read on to find out more.
Karen Connell, the mom behind another awesome city kids website, A Child Grows in Brooklyn is showcasing the best of Brooklyn (and beyond) for new and expectant parents. In addition to the swag and fun goodies here are some other highlights:
Workshops will get you up to speed on the early years, with topics like, choosing a doula, finding a nanny and making sense of the school zones. (As if a group of NYC parents could ever congregate without a discussion of schools???) CPR, diapering, baby food, greening and sleep will also be offered.
And the highlight of the expo is the seminars, five in depth, 45 minute programs, focusing on important topics by experts in the field scheduled throughout the day:
-Raising a Good Sleeper by Janet K. Kennedy, PhD, NYC Sleep Doctor
-Best Baby Gear Gurus.... tell all! by Jamie Grayson, the Baby Guy NYC, and Jennifer Link of Sweet Pea Baby Planners
-Parenting Partnerships: How to work together by Soho Parenting and Family Matters NY
