Philly Baby Guide

Your guide to those precious nine months and beyond.

Presented by Greene Towne Montessori

When it’s time to bring home a new baby, all parents have questions. Even if it’s not your first baby it’s a new experience every time. The gear changes, the health and safety recommendations change, and we learn a lot about ourselves and our parenting style for each child. So while we still haven’t found the handbook for child-rearing we have put together this Philly Baby Guide to connect you with local businesses and experts that can help navigate new parenthood so you can enjoy each little (and big!) milestone along the way. Welcome to the wildest ride of your life!
