Community baby shower held for new and expectant parents

Posted:

It was all about babies and their parents Monday in Benton Harbor.

The Berrien County Great Start Collaborative and the Raising Up Healthy Babies Task Force held a community baby shower.

It was an opportunity for moms and dads and soon-to-be parents, to learn tips to keep their babies safe.

Experts focused on teaching safe-sleep practices.

"All of the proper ways to use cribs and always on the back to sleep. And we wanted to make sure the parents are aware of that information and have it in their hands," says Amanda Williamson with Raising Up Healthy Babies.

And what's a baby shower without gifts?

Organizers gave away a lot of free stuff for babies, including diapers, car seats, and pack-and-plays.
