- Dads will certainly not be forgotten. The Dad’s Lounge, sponsored by the NYC Dad’s Group, will be hosting a “Dad Boot Camp” offering new and expecting dads an opportunity to connect with veteran dads for a frank discussion on the experience of becoming a father. Workshop topics include the rewards of personally caring for children as dads demonstrate holding, burping, changing, swaddling and comforting crying babies. There will also be discussions on new parent-related issues including developing a bond with your baby, being supportive of your baby’s mom, navigating work as a new parent and developing a parenting partnership.

- The New York Baby Show is excited to announce the “Ultimate Nursery” giveaway. One lucky winner will take home the most amazing nursery complete with furniture, bedding, toys, clothing, bottles, a stroller, a car seat and more.
