Parents could go to the Meadowbrook Mall Saturday to do a little more for their babies than shopping.
The Helping Appalachian Parents and Infants, or HAPI Project invited parents and their babies to the ninth annual Baby and Me Day.  The HAPI Project is part of West Virginia Healthy Start and aims to educate families on childcare.  The event provided information on everything to do with babies with the help of over 20 vendors.  Parents received free samples and goody bags along with information on prenatal care, special health care needs, developmental tools, and more.  The main objective of the day was to spread awareness of local services and proper childcare, and how often it can change.
"So many people don't know that there are things available to them out in the community.  It's an opportunity to go 'Wow! I didn't know that this is something important for my pregnancy or for my baby," said Penny Womeldorff, event coordinator.
Families could also try to win prizes.  The biggest game of the day was the baby crawl contest.
