The Baby Shower will feature tables from more than 20 groups including local government agencies, libraries, parent support groups, breastfeeding support, and businesses with goods and services to offer young families. Educational programs on safe sleep, infant crying, and what to do when your child is sick will also be a part of the event.

“An attendee from a previous year’s Community Baby Shower told us that she had struggled as a new mom and appreciated learning about all of the help she could receive locally, Naylor said.

“Other parents mentioned the educational programs, and many talked about all of the prizes,” said Naylor. “We would love to have all expectant and new parents join us to celebrate their baby and learn how this community can assist their family.”

The free, family-event shower will take place from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Bennet Recreation Center in Howell. Attendees are asked to register online.
