Premier Issue 2003

I pick up the magazine every time I go shopping at Safeway. There are so many wonderful resources listed for families. Keep up the good work! ~ Ann L, New Westminster In September 2003, I remember picking up my first copy at the breastfeeding clinic on Broadway when my daughter was just three-weeks old. After that I was hooked and looked forward to every new issue. My baby is now ten and even to this day, if I see a copy of Urbanbaby & Toddler Magazine I still pick it up and read through it. ~ Amanda M, Vancouver
