BEAVERCREEK — Santa Claus will be available for photo ops at the Soin Medical Center Holiday Baby Fair 2-4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 3. The event is free and open to the public.
Car seat safety
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, three out of four car seats are not used correctly. Often installation is incorrect or the wrong type of seat is being used for the child’s height, weight or age. For these children, the safety seat may not be protecting them the way it should.
Safe sleep demonstrations
Every week in Ohio, three babies die in unsafe sleep environments. To help reduce infant sleep-related deaths, maternity department nurses are providing a Safe Sleep demonstration.
The Baby Fair includes practically everything you need to know to prepare for the arrival of your new baby. You can tour Soin Medical Center’s maternity unit, visit retail booths, talk to OB/GYNs, and sign up for childbirth classes. The fair also features food, prizes, and entertainment including balloon artists.
Dads can take our new parent quiz to learn fun facts and safety information. Dads who participate will be entered in a drawing for a chance to win a $50 Dick Sporting Goods gift card.
Expecting mothers and visitors 18 years and older who pre-register are eligible to win door prizes. For more information or to register visit www.ketteringhealth.org/babyfair.
