Welcome to KidzAustin's 4TheBabez (For the Babes) - for our future "kids" in Austin and surrounding areas. We hope new parents finds this a helpful resource for navigating the Austin area for everything "baby" you might need. Bringing a tiny new life into your home can be a daunting yet wonderful experience. It's truly life changing -- from the hours you sleep to the way you keep your house and well, the fact that suddenly there's a tiny little person that is dependent on you for everything. To help make that a little easier, KidzAustin has created our 4TheBabez page offering links to great local businesses or links that can make that major transition a little easier. We've got links to pediatrician and daycare searches, local baby products and services ranging from diaper services to organic food delivered to your door, prenatal and baby massage and so much more. We even have links to some local virtual parenting communities to get you in the mom or dad frame of mind.

If there's something that you feel we MUST add, please let us know. We want this to a handy resource for all the expecting and new parents out there. Thanks!
