The 2017 New York Baby Show, May 20-21 at Pier 94, will once again be the largest show for new and expectant parents in the country. Now in its 7th year, no other event provides a better experience for thousands of expectant and new families from New York and neighboring counties, seeking a family-friendly festivity of top brands, great speakers and seminars, big giveaways, and lots of learning, support, bonding, and fun as they make their way into parenthood.
In its size and quality–but mostly in the mix of all its special features–the New York Baby Show is a baby event like no other. And it’s also a great value. Tickets are $30 per family (for 2 adults and up to 4 children), and $20 per individual. As fan of Lamaze and reader of this blog, your parents (or you) can get tickets at a 50% discount.

Lamaze International will offer a 20-minute education session titled “Giving Birth With Confidence.” The speakers are Elizabeth Cano-Correa, LCCE, on Saturday and Allison J. Walsh, IBCLC, LCCE, FACCE, on Sunday. Parents can stop by Booth #211 to see what's new with Lamaze, meet an educator, and enter a raffle. There will be time at the booth to meet the author and purchase a signed copy of the new Giving Birth with Confidence book.
The show also features an array of programming content designed to educate, inform, enlighten and entertain. Through a combination of expert speakers (covering gear, parenting tips, safety, etc.), influencers (providing opinions on products and parenting), and entertainers to keep kids happy and engaged, the show's content provides tremendous value to attendees. The two keynote speakers this year include Jamie Grayson (The BabyGuy Gear Expert) and Dr. Harvey Karp (Pediatrician & Child Development Expert). To learn more about the other speakers click here.
The New York Baby Show features 150+ top brands including Babies ‘R’ Us, BabyBjörn, Britax, Canon, Chicco, gb, Kolcraft, Munchkin, OXO, Stokke, Thule, Uppababy and more! Plus, this year the show is supported by our partners at the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA) – the industry association for child products.
This year’s show is larger than ever and promises to be fun for the whole family -- we hope to see lots of our Lamaze families there!
