This year, we were lucky enough to attend the Big City Moms’ 10th Anniversary event, Biggest Baby Shower Ever. The sold out event took place on March 18th in Los Angeles at the Guerin Pavilion of the Skirball Cultural Center, and was a true parenting goldmine for moms, moms-to-be, and the entire family to see and sample innovative products from over 100 different company vendors. The fun and welcoming environment allowed guests to enjoy mocktails and tasty treats while strolling the grounds and discovering new brands, products, and a wealth of helpful parenting information.
Big City Moms (www.bigcitymoms.com) started as a small community founded by sisters, Leslie Venokur and Risa Goldberg, but has grown to include over 300,000 members – becoming the first and largest reliable resource for mothers and families. The incredible shower proved why members and fans are so loyal by providing parental advice, genuine support, and educational seminars led by doctors, company owners, and some well-known celebrity parents and wellness bloggers.
It was incredible to witness a place where thousands of new and expecting parents could learn about the best and safest baby gear, accessories, and furniture and even enter to win prizes such as strollers, high chairs, diaper bags, car seats and bedding. We recognized many of the brands as they have been featured in the pages of our magazine! With over 100 brands to check out and try out, attendees were able to see new designs from companies such as Líllébaby, Bundle Organics, Ergo, Earth’s Best, 4MOMS, Nuna, Nurturme, Dr. Smith’s and many, many more. Big City Moms Charity Partner, Baby2Baby was also there to collect new and gently used maternity and baby products to aid local families in need.
Aside from a place to see all of the latest and greatest baby products, the shower also provided guests with ultra-valuable words of wisdom in the form of helpful parenting seminars on important topics including breastfeeding, sleep, nutrition, and healthy living. This year’s speakers included Rachel Sarnoff of Mommy Greenest; Liza Huber, author, mother, and CEO of Sage Spoonfuls; Christopher Gavigan, Co-Founder of The Honest Company; Dr. Jennifer Trachtenberg, pediatrician and co-founder of Baby Bundle app; Erica Ziel, creator of Knocked-Up Fitness, and so many more! These panelist discussions were a creative and fun way for new parents to learn some tricks of the trade and become more educated on several ways to keep their children happy and healthy.
From humble beginnings ten years ago, Big City Moms has blossomed into the most trusted source for guidance and information for all things parenting. Co-founder Leslie Venokur said, “The past ten years have flown by. I remember when I was first pregnant and didn’t know what I was doing. I have learned so much in the last decade and feel lucky to be able to share all that knowledge with new moms across the country.”
With an ever-growing membership community, strong social media presence, and frequent events around the country, Big City Moms truly provides a commonwealth of admirable parenting particulars and the latest products and essentials for a modern parenting lifestyle.
