Boiron Sponsors Brooklyn’s First Baby Expo
If you’re a new or expectant parent living in the Brooklyn area, this is the perfect event for you. A Child Grows in Brooklyn is hosting Brooklyn’s first-ever baby expo on Sunday, March 13 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Toren in the downtown area.
A Child Grows in Brooklyn Baby Expo will showcase top resources for Brooklyn parents and provide a space where they can interact with other parents and children, exhibitors and experts. Parents can shop for gear, clothes and furniture, while getting pampered with manicures and blow-outs. Hands-on activities include testing carriers and learning CPR, how to make baby food, and how to install a car seat. There are also mini-workshops on setting good sleep habits, school zoning, and how to select a doula and/or nanny. Activities for babies and children include Tummy Time, Baby Yoga, first lock cuts, haircuts, food tastings and more.
The first 250 registered attendees will receive eco-bags filled with fabulous goodies, including Boiron’s Camilia teething medicine. Throughout the day, parents will have the chance to win raffle prizes valued at $75-$650. Bloggers attending the event will receive a box of Arnicare Gel, and everyone who attends “The Expectant Parents Guide to Brooklyn” session (held from 3-3:45 p.m.) will receive their own box of Oscillococcinum.
