I will have my Tum e Time table at the upcoming Birth & Baby Fair in San Francisco this coming Sunday, Oct. 2.  Details are below.  Please stop by and say, "Hello" if you are coming :)

If you're new to parenting or expecting a baby, make a note of an upcoming event -- the San Francisco Birth and Baby Fair brings together reps from pregnancy, birth, parenting and baby related resources for a day of information, education and shopping. Baby experts -- from midwives and educators, to baby photographers -- will be on hand to address your questions and interests. The Birth and Baby Fair also offers free workshops on such topics as Baby Sign Language, Sleep Techniques and Making your own baby food , spoil yourself with mocktails from HINT water, mini massages, hand and nail treatments, and goody bags for the first 150 attendees. Check out baby and maternity clothing, including items from local designers, most discounted from regular retail price.

Child Advertising

Brain research shows that children at the age of 13 months can remember a single event up to one week after seeing it, a 1.5 year old can remember a single event up to 4 months afterwards!  Who knows this best, advertisers.

There is a reason that Sweden has banned tv ads aimed at children under 12.  Are there any rules in the US?  Must do more research.
