Spring is associated with new life. Flowers bloom and fresh buds start showing up on trees. In order for new growth to take place, plants breathe in air and process sunlight and water to get the nutrients that they need. As winter fades into the background, spring brings sunlight and the energy that it provides. With more sunlight available, plants are able to produce food and blossom. Month by month, the days get longer, and plants are able to soak in the added rays. Increased temperatures inspire growth and allow seeds to germinate. New plant life surfaces vibrant color and brings brightness to the greys and whites of winter. For the animal kingdom, baby birds begin to hatch in the spring. Starlings and sparrows are the first onto the scene, followed by songbirds such as robins, blue jays, and cardinals.
With baby birds emerging from the comfort of their eggs and flowers budding with colorful blooms, the spring months are a wonderful time to celebrate new life. This month, the Westin Carlsbad Resort & Spa is hosting Babies in Bloom’s 8th annual BabyFest.
BabyFest has found a home in Carlsbad for the last seven years. On March 22nd, the Westin Carlsbad Resort & Spa will be hosting the signature event and bringing all of the best information, products, and services to expecting families. Embarking on the journey of parenthood can be overwhelming. BabyFest puts everything in one place so that families can ask questions, test products, and start planning for what is to come. Regardless of whether or not you have already welcomed a little one into your family, this annual event can equip you to walk away with new ideas and a sense of excitement. Choosing which products to use, let alone understanding the nuances of your baby’s daily interactions can seem impossible. With local experts on the scene and the chance to test products in real-time, BabyFest is a one-stop shop to celebrate all things baby.
The expo will feature over 50 unique vendors. Sponsored by Gymboree Play & Music, the list of exhibitors includes everything from babywearing and chiropractic solutions to fitness opportunities for new moms. UPPAbaby will have a suite of products on hand. From full-size strollers to lightweight options and car seats, guests will be able to see the new line of products and get a glimpse of their new App. The App allows users to download helpful videos, provides product support, and delivers important customer service information. Arbonne will be there to help parents with the chaos of pre and post-baby life. Moms and caregivers will be able to sift through new skincare products, makeup, and nutrition supplements. Their Essentials line is a lifesaver for new parents who are navigating how to function on little to no sleep. The fizz sticks can be added to water to promote endurance and reduce fatigue. Vendors like the Noonan Family Swim School will be there to provide anxious parents with a reliable option for teaching little ones some of life’s basic skills.
In addition to vendors, the event will feature a wide panel of speakers and experts. Check back here to see the full schedule of speakers so that you can plan your day.
