As a special preview of the LA Baby Show, coming up on the weekend of November 5-6, we have interviewed or profiled many of the Show’s vendors and participants. You can read all about them on this Show blog, but of course the real fun is experiencing the Baby Show in person.
Tickets to the Baby Show are $30 per family, and $20 per individual, and can be purchased here.
New motherhood can be an overwhelming time – suddenly you have a perfect, tiny little human that is entirely dependent on you. There are so many things to learn, information to process and details to remember. That’s why Bellies, Babies and Bosoms is so helpful for new mothers in Los Angeles.
