Oh, baby! Fair comes to Crittenton Hospital

Wait! Do not skip this article just because you aren’t pregnant or don’t have a baby! Do not miss the Baby Fair either. I’m serious! You’ll be really disappointed if you do. I went last year and was so excited. Yes, Whole Foods was there, I was 6 months pregnant and they gave me free food. However, it still would’ve been awesome without that. I gathered a ton of information and met a lot of people who are involved in various aspects of pregnancy, birth and child rearing. If you have a child under the age of six at home, you will want to attend. Most of the vendors are geared towards parents with preschool age children and younger but there will be vendors such as The Funky Frog, New York Life and Independent Expressions that will interest parents with children of all ages. The Rochester Hills Fire Department will be there to do car seat safety checks as well. Don’t forget to get your chair massage from Health & Healing Chiropractic. This year you can even bring your kids to participate in a Halloween costume contest, have their faces painted and play in the Shelby Fire Station bounce house.

Last year, I loved connecting with different vendors to explore their products and information. It can be difficult to go shopping when you have little ones so it’s very convenient to have all these people lined up, waiting to share with you. The vendor list is even longer this year than last year so I’m really excited to go.

Look at all these wonderful vendors:

  • Children’s Choice Learning Center

The Baby Fair will be held this Saturday, October 26 from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. For more detailed information visit http://crittenton.com/event-registration/?regevent_action=register&event_id=749
