Bellies Galore: Baby Shower at Baby on the Hip in East Toronto
Last June, I had a chance hang out with some wonderful expectant east end parents and get a crash-course on baby care during the first-ever Baby Shower for Expecting Parents, held at Baby on the Hip! The event was FREE, and featured door prizes from some great local east end businesses, including:
Here's a photo of the fabulous ladies behind the above businesses. From left to right: Laura (MommyConnections of East Toronto), April (Lil Bean N Green), M.E. (Wholeplay), Dara (Belly Bootcamp), and Debbie (Precious Moments Babeez). If you're wondering where I am, I'm behind the camera. :) As you can see, two of the ladies are expecting babies (both having their 2nd) of their own. Laura actually had her baby boy on June 15th - just FOUR DAYS after the baby shower event!!! :) Baby on the Hip was gracious enough to offer up their great store space to host the event, and most items in-store were available to attendees at 10% off. Refreshments were provided by Lil Bean N Green, and I was on-hand to take some photos during the event. I snapped the photo below before the event started. Check out the awesome room setup!
The turnout was great, and it was lovely to see so many beautiful bellies in the room!
Debbie from Precious Moments Babeez gave a great talk about basic infant care. This included swaddling, bathing, and feeding. Here's Debbie in action:
She even had a fabulous prop as a visual aid. Can you guess what it is? Feel free to leave your guesses in the comments section of this post. :)
And here are a few additional highlights from the event.
As you can see, everyone was very engaged. My own daughter will be 5 next month, and I was surprised by how much I had forgotten! This was definitely very informative, and I'm sure that the mommies-to-be were more than happy with the info and fabulous swag that they came away with!
Thanks again to everyone who popped in, and a big thanks to Laura of MommyConnections of East Toronto for organizing this, and to Baby on the Hip for providing space for the venue! I look forward to the next one!
