Boston is sizzling in the summer with planned programs for your city slicker. Although there are endless ways to find out about events, it can often feel overwhelming to navigate through the abyss of information saturating the city.
A few helpful resources are listed below:
- Boston Babies
BB is your guide to an urban upbringing. Subscribe to this blog (see right side bar) so you receive an email when a new post is published. You can also continue to check back and use this as your one stop shopping resource to raising a family in the city. Whether you are looking for best practices, where to shop/what to buy, activities taking place in or around the city or featured stories from moms and dads, BB will provide the information you need in one centralized location.
You can visit Boston Babies on Facebook or follow on twitter @boston_babies.
- Garden Moms
GM is the Boston based hub for “mommy and me” information. Whether you are looking to buy baby products, sell baby products, ask intimate questions, get advice, give advice or follow fellow bloggers, GM has a forum for it! While it is a lot to digest, you can manage your account to only send you the overviews of each mommy category, which generally amounts to 3 mass emails a day (and of course you can go online to check GM whenever time permits). While it may have been originally based for your Back Bay baby, it is a wonderful and thorough resource for any family.
- North End Waterfront Mother’s Association
NEWMA is a wonderful resource for any family, but especially for those who live in the North End, Waterfront, West End area, as the information is very pertinent to those neighborhoods. It is also extremely bare bones and user friendly and not as intimidating or in-depth as Garden Moms.
