new parents expoIf you’re a NYC mom or mom-to-be, you’ll want to clear your calendar one day this weekend for the New Parents Expo at Pier 92, hosted by our friends at New York Family Magazine.

You’ll find more than 100 exhibitors featuring the best brands and services for pregnant and new moms, babies and toddlers. Plus a stroller test track and tune up, a
play area for your kiddos, and tons of awesome prizes. As in, you could walk out with a $1500 nursery from giggle,
a free spa weekend getaway, a professional photography session, and a ton more.

Plus there are some amazing speakers, like keynote Dr. Harvey
Karp (who doesn’t love him?), Rosie Pope, Liz Lange, Dr. Bob Sears, and even our own publisher Kristen Chase, who will offer up some awesome tech tips and hot gadget picks for all the new moms of the world.

(Tip number one: Smart phone. Trust us.)

We also love the whole New Dad’s Panel on Saturday; so nice to see the menfolk included in an expo for a change.

If you’re going, please make sure to look for Kristen on Sunday and say hi! We’d love to see you there.  -Liz and Kristen
