Hosted by Karen Connell, the brains behind A Baby Grows in Brooklyn, the Brooklyn Baby Expo will be held at Toren Condos from 11am to 4pm. The Expo, expected to attract expectant moms, new parents and young families, boasts a day full of activities, exhibitors, demos, seminars and raffles.
The Expo transcends the usual fare of baby shows and boasts a line-up of helpful demos and speakers that most modern parents would appreciate.
Demos include: testing carriers, learning CPR, learning to make baby food and install a car seat
Raising a Good Sleeper Speaker: Janet K. Kennedy, PhD, NYC Sleep Doctor
Greening Your Home Speaker: Alexandra Zissu
The Expectant Parents Guide to Brooklyn Speakers: Karen Connell, founder of A Child Grows in Brooklyn and Chana Balk from BabyBites Brooklyn

Hank and JoJo
