(Brooklyn, NY) – As the recent baby boom takes neighborhoods in Brooklyn by storm, family-friendly amenities have been scrambling to keep up. The blog, A Child Grows in Brooklyn which keeps parents updated on these resources, is taking its virtual “home” to an actual location with the first-ever Expo for new and expectant parents in Brooklyn.

On Sunday, March 13 from 11am to 4pm, the A Child Grows in Brooklyn Baby Expo will showcase top resources for Brooklyn parents and provides a space where they can interact with other parents and children, exhibitors and experts. At the Expo, which will take place in the stunning penthouses of downtown Brooklyn’s “eye-popping” LEED building, Toren, (150 Myrtle Ave), parents can attend mini-workshops, demonstrations, seminars and relax in the Nursing Lounge and savor the catering of Brooklyn Fare.

Attendees can shop for everything from gear, clothes and furniture while getting pampered with manicures and blow-outs. Hands-on activities include testing carriers, learning CPR, learning to make baby food and install a car seat.  Parents can attend mini-workshops on topics ranging from 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 a romp in the B. Playful room stocked with b. toys.
