Baby Talks

The big issues for people caring for little people

Think City Baby Talks is a chance for people caring for babies to talk about the issues affecting our city.

Parents and caregivers often come together to talk about issues related to caring for young children, like nutrition, sleep or childhood development, but what is unique about these sessions is that the topics will be focused on the civic issues that impact our families.

Each session will include a short presentation by an expert speaker or panel, followed by small group discussions. Those attending should come prepared to share their thoughts and ideas with fellow participants.

Baby Talks is for caregivers and pre-walking babies.

There is no child-minding and no childcare, so parents must be prepared to participate while caring for their babies.
