Philly Baby Guide: Fall 2021

Your guide to those precious nine months and beyond.

Presented by Greene Towne Montessori & GoodBuy Gear


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!

Sign up for YOUR High Five to get our curated roundup of things to do in Philly and around the Main Line (virtually and in person), as well as the latest guides and updates from local businesses, delivered straight to your inbox every Thursday.

Philadelphia Family is published by a team of local women to connect families raising their kids in the city with resources, events, and each other. It all started with our vibrant Philly Family Community Facebook group dedicated to Building Community (join the conversation with our 5,000 local members!) and our Email Newsletters, which deliver our curated roundup of things to do in Philly and around the Main Line (virtually and in person), as well as our latest news and updates from local businesses, each week!
