Everything for Baby at Drool Baby Expo
Getting ready to Drool? We know you’re excited to meet our favorite brands and check out all their fabulous gear. But to properly prep for the night, we want to make sure you know about all our vendors—big and small! They’re here to help you be fully equipped for baby before, during, and after labor. Some will even help you find communities of local moms and dads to help you navigate parenthood. Here are some vendors you’ll want to take a look at:
CBR: Newborn stem cell research is advancing, and the benefits to banking are immeasurable. Parents have the option to preserve their baby’s umbilical cord blood and cord blood tissue as an investment for the future. These preserved newborn stem cells can help treat diseases way past infancy. Explore your options at Drool!
Diaper Lab: Thinking about cloth diapering? Taking that extra step has huge benefits for the environment and your wallet. Located in Davis Square in Cambridge, Diaper Lab has the largest retail selection of cloth diapers in the Greater Boston area. They also hold workshops not only on cloth diapering but babywearing and breastfeeding, too. In the process, they’ve created their own supportive community of parents.
The very best baby gear: Choosing the right baby gear is daunting, but Drool makes it a fun and interactive experience. Meet brands like Bugaboo, Nuna, UPPAbaby Stokke, and so many more. See a full list of vendors here. They offer the absolute best and safest in car seats and strollers, and you’ll be able to get all your questions answered straight from the source. Magic Beans gear gurus will also be there to help you decide what gear will best fit your family’s lifestyle. It’s what we do every day!
Nightingale Night Nurses: The Nightingales give Boston area parents their most sought-after gift: a good night’s sleep. They provide in-home Baby Nurses, Night Nurses, Night Nannies, and Overnight Doulas for families with newborns. Explore your options for postpartum care at Drool!
Pottery Barn Kids: Make your nursery look like it’s straight out of a magazine—at least until the baby gets here. Get inspired by Pottery Barn Kids’ nursery styles by mixing and matching to find the perfect fit for your home’s latest addition.
Acelleron Maternal Health & Wellness: Acelleron Maternal Health & Wellness, along with being a resource for classes, are the Boston doula experts. Talk our friends at Acelleron at Drool to learn more! They offer a wide range of classes for both parents like breastfeeding essentials, newborn care, and belly-friendly fitness. Want a free breast pump? Acelleron Medical Products will provide you with one through insurance.
Maternity and newborn photographers: Find the photographer to capture your belly and baby! Both Polina Kuklina Photography and Robotti & Rosa Photography will be at Drool to show you examples of their work and book appointments.
Buckle Me Baby Coats: Traditional puffy winter coats are often unsafe when worn underneath a car seat’s harness. The padding can flatten in a crash, leaving extra space for possible ejection from the seat. Buckle Me Baby Coats are the safer, more user-friendly solution! Their removable front and open shoulders make for an easy transition from snow to car.
Adeo Health Science: In years past, the best way to prevent your little one from a nut allergy was to cut them off completely. But recent studies show that slowly introducing them to infants could actually be a better measure. Adeo Health Science provides families with organic and non-GMO baby food with trace amounts of allergens to prevent allergies. Discover your family’s options with Adeo at Drool!
