New parents tend to be overwhelmed and too busy with their new job raising a baby to spend much time searching for activities that will get them out of the house meeting other new parents. Yet as a new parent, meeting and networking with other new parents is one of the best things you can do for you and your child. It is the best way to build a support network with other like-minded new parents.

Finding activities is hard to do because there is no one central source for all Kelowna activities that are suitable to bring a child to. When I was a new parent I had to rely on word of mouth or a variety of other sources (all of which took a lot of time to find). As a result I sometimes didn’t find out about an activity that really interested me until it was too late to take part in. I thought there had to be a better way for time-strapped new parents to decide which activities to take part in.

So Kelowna New Parent was born! Here you can find everything you need to know about being a new parent in Kelowna. From health information (immunizations/breastfeeding centre) to activities you can participate in with your baby, to places to shop for baby related items to baby-friendly restaurants. There is also a forum to connect with other new parents in Kelowna and a classified section where you can buy or sell baby related items to other local parents. Everything you could ever want or need to know about baby related services in Kelowna can be found on this site.

So take advantage of everything Kelowna has to offer and have fun with your new baby
