• Parents can start their baby registry at the show and get a free gift while supplies last from Babies-r-Us. They will also get to demonstrate baby registry must haves like car seats, strollers, and bouncers.
• Babypalooza U. Parents don’t come to Babypalooza alone they bring the entire family. There are seminars on the main stage every 30-minutes with information the whole family needs to know as they prepare for the newest member of the family.
• Grandview Medical Center is rolling out the red carpet for “The Experience of a Lifetime.” Stop by their booth to see their “new release” and learn more about their maternity and women’s services. Register for door prizes, get to know their OBGYN “directors” and meet some of the “stars” on their nursing team! Visitors that watch the virtual tour will receive a door prize ticket for a chance to win either a fully-loaded diaper bag or a MamaRoo
• Birmingham’s Biggest Baby Shower at the main stage every 30 minutes. We’ll play Baby Bingo, Daddy Olympics, How Much for Baby? And other fun games for big prizes.

• Baby Shower Tablescapes. This is an area where companies like GiGi’s Cupcakes, Bluebell Ice Cream, and Nothing Bundt cakes create baby shower themes where expectant moms can get inspiration for the baby shower.
• Early Learning and Development. Childcare Resources will have VROOM seminars. Vroom is an initiative of the Bezos Family Foundation, born out of early childhood research that shows that the first five years of life are critically important to children’s future learning and success.
