Laurel Kellam helps mothers get organized with baby events 

The stay-at-home mom with an almost-1-year-old daughter launched PlayPlanit.com with another mom to help organize and calendar baby activities in The City.

What do you think is unique about being a stay-at-home mom in San Francisco? Obviously, there are challenges. You have to take the baby and all the gear. Then, you have to take the car. You have to find parking. But I think one of the things that’s wonderful about being in San Francisco is there are a lot of businesses here, so many playgrounds and so much to do.

What’s one thing you’d tell expecting parents? For parents or caregivers, I think if they’re staying at home, they need to meet other people in the same situation.

Why? Connecting with other people is vital and it’s great if you have a friend who’s got three kids and she’s got all the advice in the world, but it’s really nice to find a parent who has a kid your age and is going through the same things. Whether it’s the sleepless nights or they’re crawling, it’s all the things that you go through, and you need to have people in your circle.

How many baby activities were you aware of before you started the site? I knew about maybe 10 to 20 businesses, but now we have 12,000 activities for the months of June and July alone.
