This is for all the new New Yorkers.

New and expecting parents and caregivers are invited to attend city “baby showers,” organized by the NYC Children’s Cabinet, where they can learn how to promote healthy brain development in their newborns.

Five showers will be held across the city now through spring, during which families can find information and resources on nutrition, sleep safety, early childhood education and more. The events will also provide practical items such as diapers and clothing.

The first of the free showers kicks off March 4 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Monsignor Scanlan High School, 915 Hutchinson River Pkwy., in the Bronx. Up to 40 city agencies and community organizations are expected to attend.
