Parenting is all the rage these days. But while it’s great that you can now find out what kind of baby sling the stars use by looking at the tabloids, what new moms really want to know is how to raise a kid in their own town. This is particularly true in a city like D.C., which has a high percentage of transplants, and an established (not to mention polarized!)

Overview

Parenting is all the rage these days. But while it’s great that you can now find out what kind of baby sling the stars use by looking at the tabloids, what new moms really want to know is how to raise a kid in their own town. This is particularly true in a city like D.C., which has a high percentage of transplants, and an established (not to mention polarized!) social system. Until now, these moms had no resource that answered their questions about doctors, prenatal yoga, where to get their maternity and baby gear, and how to get a stroller on the Metro. City Baby D.C. picks up right where the pregnancy test left off! City Baby D.C. includes all the valuable mom-tested info of the original City Baby: obstetric care and childbirth; adjusting to new motherhood; activities, classes, restaurants, and family outings; and what you really need for toys, clothes, furniture, music, and baby supplies. It also covers topics that are particular to the area, including tips on navigating D.C.’s playgroup scene and the best free local attractions.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This definitive guide makes a great baby shower gift and is a terrific resource for new and more established D.C. moms as well." ~The Georgetown Bidness
No mother or expectant mother needs to be convinced of the advantages of a city-specific parenting guide. Current contact info can be invaluable if you're searching for obstetric care; birthing classes and locales; daycare centers; playgroups and other activities; child-friendly restaurants; or toddler toys, clothes, furniture, music, and baby supplies. To create this 224-page installment of the successful series, Washington mom Holly Morse Caldwell has scoped out the whole D.C. Metro scene, hunting for the best free attractions, stroller stores, prenatal yoga instruction, and much more. Worth its weight in baby pictures.
