Becoming a parent can be utterly overwhelming—I know this from personal experience. When I was pregnant with my daughter, my husband and I had zero idea where to start when it came to choosing the right stroller, how to create a baby registry, or when to start saving for college. Yes, these are all things that start running through your mind when you’re expecting!
Luckily, the nation’s largest adults-only night out for expectant and new parents, The Mother of All Baby Showers (MOABS for short), is headed back to South Florida on Friday, Sept. 7. I’ve attended this event several times and think it’s one of the absolute best.
Held annually at the Young At Art Museum in Davie, MOABS brings together the expertise of local and national companies and will offer parents and parents-to-be an immersive experience unlike any other. Educational sessions cover nutrition and wellness, sleep safety, car seat tips and more. Their “Test Before You Invest” area gives attendees the chance to interact with a variety of maternity, juvenile and family-focused gear as well as purchase items for exclusive one night only prices. The evening also offers tasty treats from local restaurants, mini spa treatments, The Mother of All SWAG Bags and giveaways valued at over $20,000.
If you’re truly looking for a one-stop shopping experience to gather useful information and resources, the Mother of All Baby Showers is the place to be. You’ll be able to meet other parents and parents-to-be, celebrate motherhood and even get pampered (and gifted) in the process.
I was told by MOABS founder, Amy Lundy, that all local and national brands featured have been hand-picked for the event. Many were even created for parents by parents. And buybuy BABY will even help you create or edit your registry right then and there. Check one item off your never ending to do list, mamas!
The bottom line? This event offers a huge opportunity for parents to prepare for the arrival of a new baby by learning some of the parenting basics and researching the many choices they will encounter as consumers.
Tickets for the event are $20 for general attendees and $60 for VIP admission. VIP admission is limited to 100 people and includes a Cribette playard for sleep and play for babies, SWAG-filled bag, and early admission to the event at 6 p.m.
