Wondering what makes Baby Steps Fair so amazing? Here are just a few reasons:
- We have an amazing Breastfeeding and Diaper Change room sponsored by EcoParent! Women and men alike can avail themselves of our change tables for their infants with complimentary baby wipes and hand sanitizer. Breastfeeding moms can continue on to the private area for breastfeeding, equipped with a fireplace and comfy chairs to nourish your little ones in! Also, we know how thirsty you get, so take advantage of our water station before you head back out to finish your shopping at the Fair!
- We have the amazing services of Emergency Rescue Academy Inc. who are providing the Fair with on-site paramedics, should they be needed. At Baby Steps Fair you can really feel safe! Make sure you check out their presentation with Q & A for all of your infant first aid inquiries.
- We have planned our Fair to include 10 foot aisles to accommodate strollers and wandering children! Also, let your children play in our play area to burn off some steam before you go home! They will have a blast and you can have a rest while they play (located near the stage).
- Sign up for our Baby Derby and see if your baby is the crawling champion! Win prizes for the little ones and enjoy the show! Also, be sure to enter our raffle at the front door to win great prizes donated by our vendors! Also, find out who won the cutest and grumpiest baby contest from our Facebook contest!

Have you heard? Good Night Sleep Site will be offering advice at their booth to help mothers get a good night’s sleep! They will be offering emotional and educational support to help your baby or toddler with their sleep needs. Their philosophy is that there is no one method approach to sleep training. They don’t choose one over another, they find what works for you and your family. Their goal is to work with you and set up a Sleep Plan that you are comfortable with to help your baby or toddler become a good sleeper. The nightmare of sleepless nights is over, and a new day has dawned! Whether you are a first time parent, a been-there-done-that parent, or a parent of multiples, you and your child are about to start a wonderful sleep journey. Be sure to visit them at the Fair!
We are happy to announce MamaLuv is a sponsor of Baby Steps Fair and providing our amazing, eco-friendly Swag Bags for the Fair!
In case you haven’t heard of them, they are an innovative company who offers an alternative to giving flowers to new mothers. Their company allows people to send pre-made meals to new parents. I was amazed that they are out there! That would have been so helpful when my daughter was born!
So many parents resort to ordering take-out or the quick peanut butter sandwich over the sink while caring for a new infant. In reality, this is unhealthy for the new parents – resulting in low energy and low nutrition – and it is equally unhealthy for the baby who is breastfeeding! This innovative service for new parents could go a long way to helping parents and breast-feeding mothers maintain a healthy body and mind throughout this crazy beginning period of parenting.
Like any business, MamaLuv has grown and changed in its journey. Tracy Goodman-MacKay imparts that, “what started as a useful gift-idea for new parents, slowly turned into a helpful gift for people undergoing chemotherapy, or a thoughtful gift for someone who’s recently lost a loved-one. Some stories have lifted my soul, and some have left me sobbing at my desk. But at the end of the day, it’s so rewarding to know how little ol’ me, has been able to make so many people’s lives a little easier when they need it most.” (excerpt from an article located here).
Life with Kids is a new and amazing resource for parents in the Halton Region. It’s a website developed by some Mums who were tired of endless web searches to find things to do with and for their children. Lifewithkids.ca is your one stop source to find activity groups, child friendly businesses and restaurants, advice from other parents and things like where to get your child’s haircut. We look forward to learning everything we can from them about the amazing resources available to all of us.
We are so happy to have these amazing companies supporting Baby Steps Fair!
