You will meet leading experts who focus on subjects specific to parenting. Meet with one of our resident educators to try on baby carriers in-person.

Registration, Gift Bags, and Giveaways.
Show us your ticket on your phone, or as a print out, and we will get you your badge at registration. You can come and go as you please once you have your attendee badge. These badges have space on the front to write in your name and a little bit of info about yourself. We’ve found this is a great way to break the ice and meet other attendees. If you have a ticket type that includes a gift bag, you will be given a wrist band that you will then trade in when you pick up your bag. And let’s not forget the giveaways! Make sure to check the back of your attendee badge. If it says “You’re a Winner!” head back to registration later in the day to claim your prize.
Who should attend:
New and expectant parents and those that have toddlers. Our sessions focus on the first five years of a child’s life and advice for parents of every stage.
Strollers are welcome at the event. However, we will ask for strollers to be folded if crowding becomes an issue.
We have teamed up with Share the Love for cloth diaper donations and The Carrying On Project for baby carrier donations. Both of these organizations take new and used items to give to families in need. Share the Love provides cloth diapers to families who could not otherwise afford them, and the Carrying On Project provides baby carriers to military families.
ASL Interpretation Services:
If you are in need of ASL interpretation services or any other accessibility accommodations, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your ticket information 60 days prior to the event so we can discuss details with you.
Please remember that you will be receiving emails leading up to the event with more details and please follow us on Facebook for the latest updates! You can find us on Twitter, on Instagram, and on Facebook.
Tickets are non-refundable, but can be transferred at any time by emailing your e-ticket to the new attendee.
