Now let me tell you a little bit about this year’s Keynote Speaker, Jamie Grayson, who is known as the BabyGuy.

In the new parent space, Jamie has accomplished something really wonderful, even kind of remarkable. With his passion for baby gear products and baby life (and life in general), Jamie has cultivated a Facebook community that is not only huge but that’s truly engaged, vibrant, and deeply informed!

Jamie brings the goods, but he also brings the joy and the fun—and new parents really appreciate it.

At the Baby Show, both days, his Keynote chat focuses on strollers, car seats and car seat safety, crib mattresses, breast pumps, baby carriers, and other gear. Plus, he’s also part of the Show’s closing act each day, as he and the maternal health expert Shari Criso offer a live version of their popular monthly online show about breastfeeding and new parenthood.

To read more about Jamie, HERE is our interview with him!

Final Thought On Our Seminars: My single favorite moment from past Baby Shows was when a mom who was suffering from post-partum depression spoke up at one of our seminars, and one of the panelists then shared her own struggle with the illness. I bring up this riveting moment with the hope that, in addition to Jamie, you’ll check out all of our programming. Between all of the wonderful experts appearing at the Baby Show, chances are you can ask a question of interest on any topic related to pregnancy, birth, and life with baby.

Jamie’s Keynote on shopping for baby gear is from 1:15-2:15pm both days; and his closing act with Shari Crisco is from 3:30-4pm both days.
