So, every aspect of Babies & Bumps is designed to connect you to valuable resources before you need them and to facilitate real conversations about all aspects of having a baby.

Babies & Bumps is an exclusive event designed for parents with babies (newborn - 24 months) and bumps; get answers to your questions, gain confidence in your decisions, resolve your fears...and become empowered about all aspects of pregnancy, birth, the transition to parenthood, and your baby's development!
No pressure. No judgment. Just support, resources, and community for you and your growing family.
On event day, moms, dads, expectant parents, and caregivers can expect to find all of the following (and more) under one roof:
* Baby Registry Lab – internationally recognized baby gear expert and Child Passenger Safety Technician, Jamie Grayson, will host a 60-minute session at the beginning of the event, where he’ll walk attendees through registry products and safety basics in five main baby gear categories – car seats, strollers, carriers, sleep, and high chairs. Immediately following the session, attendees will find Jamie & team at the BRL demo area for questions, photos, and hands-on demonstrations of a wide range of baby gear.
*Educational sessions -- we partner with experts to provide classroom-style workshops and seminars on a wide range of topics related to pregnancy and parenting, like writing a birth plan, the fourth trimester and postpartum recovery, and positive sleep habits.
*Demonstrations – these interactive sessions are designed to teach a skill that you can take home and put into practice, like infant CPR, picking the perfect breast bump, and comfort measures in labor.
*Exhibitors & vendors -- we curate the event in order to showcase organizations that cater to new and soon-to-be parents, have positive online reviews and good reputations, and have missions that are aligned with ours. On event day, guests can learn about local resources, shop, and sign up for classes, among other things.
*Amenities -- we offer creature comforts like a mothers' lounge -- for peace, quiet, nursing, and pumping -- as well as passed samplings for parents, a stroller check, and more.
*Fabulous giveaways!! – we have lavish gift bags packed with $100+ in products from brands we love, as well as grand prize drawing. (Giveaways vary by ticket type.)
*Opportunity to give back -- guests have a chance to win dozens of prizes generously donated by our sponsors, local businesses, and manufacturers in our raffle. 100% of proceeds from raffle ticket sales are donated to a mission-driven organization that serves families and children.
*Convenience -- parking is free and plentiful, and the Embassy Suites Charlotte Ayrsley is easy to access.
