The social lives of new parents aren’t always lackluster, but it’s not an uncommon problem: it’s hard to get out of the house when your baby needs so much attention (and you could really use forty winks, or more), and it can feel quite urgent to talk to other folks who are sharing the same experiences for the first time.
Asked how to make new mom friends, blogger Amalah says, “There’s no magic solution. There’s no secret club where all the nice, awesome moms meet.” But she might be wrong about that: we expect an influx of nice, awesome moms (and dads) at the upcoming Connecticut Drool Baby Expo!
That’s right, our extraordinary expo for expectant and new parents is coming south for the fall: on October 29, we’ll be bringing all the delights of Drool to the Marriott Hotel and Spa in Stamford, Connecticut, in the heart of Fairfield County and just a stone’s throw from Westchester County and New York City.
As with the Boston Drool Baby Expo events (a grand success and sellout crowds four years running!), at Connecticut Drool you can:
- Chat up the people who bring you all the premium baby gear brands – Baby Jogger, BOB, Britax, Bugaboo, Chicco, ERGObaby, Nuna, Orbit Baby, and more! It’s the best way to comparison-shop: get a demo of one stroller you’re considering, compare it to the one you’re eyeing in the next booth, and repeat until you’ve settled on the stroller you just can’t live without!
- Take advantage of crazy savings on premium gear with our exclusive one-night-only promotions! There will be discounts and gifts with purchase from virtually every exhibitor.
- Shop at the Magic Beans pop-up shop! Everything on display will be available to purchase on the spot or place an order for, and our friendly gear experts will be all over the show floor to offer their product knowledge and opinions, and perform demos.
- Enter to win our raffles: all VIP and Standard ticketholders get a scavenger hunt card at the beginning of the show. The more tasks on the card you complete, the more raffle tickets you get, and at the end, you can turn in your tickets to enter to win some of the coolest baby products on the market!
- All VIP and Standard ticketholders get sumptuous gift bags loaded with products and services new parents can use – VIP gift bags contain over $200 in free products plus a Magic Beans gift card, and Standard gift bags are worth more than 2x what you paid to get in.
- All Drool attendees can enjoy tasty mocktails, yummy free refreshments, and fun pampering (you deserve it!).
And finally: when you come to the Connecticut Drool Baby Expo, you’re surrounded by hundreds of gals and guys who are in the same boat as you – adjusting to life as parents, and eager to chat about baby gear, playgroups, preschools, and how absolutely wonderful babies are. This is the place to ask the mom next to you where she got that amazing dress, or compliment the Dr. Who-themed onesie her baby is wearing, and maybe make a new friend.
VIP tickets for Drool tend to disappear really fast, so we recommend getting yours the minute you see this – given all the great free swag that comes with that ticket, why would you wait? We’re hoping that this will be another sold out event, and we can’t wait to see you there!
