What to expect at Babypalooza
The question remains—what can I expect to see at Babypalooza?
Since 2006, Babypalooza has provided important resources that new parents need. From baby and maternity information sessions to linking you to local parenting resources, you will get the chance to explore the importance of Maternity Wellness, Child Safety and Early Learning.
Owner Cecilia Pearson gives a pretty great sales pitch.
“Being a first-time parent can be overwhelming, and Babypalooza seeks to ease anxiety by bringing everything parents need under one roof.
No where else can they start a college savings plan, learn about the latest carseat and strollers, join in a baby shower with other parents and see dozens of services they need all in one day.”Cecilia Pearson, Owner, Babypalooza
