|Club MomMe and Savvy Sassy Moms host a mom-friendly event at Right Start in Santa Monica.|
That's why I was happy to check out a local event last night hosted by Club MomMe, a new social and educational community for moms and moms-to-be, and my friend Andrea from Savvy Sassy Moms.
A group of moms (and a few nervous dads!) gathered at Right Start in Santa Monica to check out Registry 101: The Inside Info on Baby Gear. And I wanted to share with readers, who might have little ones on the way, some fun new products that have come along in the five years since I had CC.
Also, I wanted to share more info about Club MomMe, which is hosting a ton of fun and informative events in the next couple of months. For starters, on April 10th, they'll be hosting another registry dinner in Manhattan Beach, and parents can get a preschool primer on April 17 at Giggles 'N Hugs in Century City. While the events do come with a price tag (starting at $35), that does include refreshments, a generous gift bag and a chance to win bigger prizes during a raffle.
Travel Boppy ($44.99, left), a genius adaptation of the original breastfeeding helper.
Also, did you know that the ubiquitous (we have one, too) Baby Bjorn (on sale at $103.99) now comes with a back support strap so your shoulders don't get too weighed down from toting Baby everywhere?
And I love this counter-top drying rack for bottles, binkies and plasticware -- the Lawn ($29.99).
What I didn't know was that the ultra-French baby toy Sophie the Giraffe teether (on sale for $19.99) has made quite the impact Stateside. What's especially great about this toy is that it's made from natural rubber (not plastic) and colored with food paint.
Even if you don't have a little one on the way but still want to get more connected with local moms, these upcoming events are great opportunities for meeting new friends and checking out great products.
