Earlier this year I attended the Clicks BabyClub and Paed-IQ Baby Bootcamp. At first I was a bit skeptical about attending a baby workshop because I’ve already been there and done that. 😉 But then I realised how important this will be for me since my baby is arriving in September. My first-born is a girl and she’s almost 3-years-old. I got preggy brain at the moment and can’t seem to remember anything for newborns. I feel like a first time mom all over again especially since I’m having a boy this time. This was the perfect opportunity for me to speak to experts in the industry and get professional opinions on questions that has played on my mind.
The workshop speakers included a Paediatrician, Midwife, Psychologist, Dietician and Biokineticist. All aimed at helping Moms and Dads prepare for the arrival of their little miracle.
I’m so glad that brands are hosting more baby seminars and workshops. This gives us moms-to-be an opportunity to see what’s on the market and learn about new products and services.
Being a first time mom can be overwhelming. I remember when Kitana was born, a week later she ended up getting sick. It scared me because she was so tiny and I couldn’t give her any medicine. I felt like I did something wrong and kept blaming myself.
The first year of being a mom takes you on a rollercoaster. You not sure what to expect and your emotions are still all over the place. Gaining as much information as you can during pregnancy is so important. This will help you prepare and you will also learn about little things like the importance of hygiene etc. when you have a newborn around.
I think my highlight of this event was listening to the Gynaecologist and the Paediatrician. Even though the event was information overload especially for first time parents, it was worth it. The goodie bags were amazing and the brands involved definitely helped me understand their products better.
It was a morning well spent for me (even though I had to literally drag my body out of bed) and I definitely learnt some important tips that I will be applying when my little munchkin arrives.
I love that you can ask questions during the talk and even chat to the speakers afterwards.
They still have more Baby Bootcamps coming up for the year. So if you keen on attending, visit their website – https://paediq.com/babyBootcamp.html and book your ticket.
