I got some exciting news this past week. I was selected to become a MommyCon Sisterhood Journalist!
So have you ever heard of MommyCon before? What is it you ask?
Well according to their website:
“MommyCon is a boutique style convention dedicated to bringing modern parents and mothers-to-be together. Our focus is on natural and organic parenting methods and timeless tidbits as we journey through parenthood together. Our seminars and workshops include; baby wearing, birth, breastfeeding, cloth diapering, car seat safety, natural health and medicine, baby gear, childproofing and so much more! We end our day with amazing giveaways and each attendee gets a gift bag from our sponsors.”
Since I’m now the proud mama of 2 beautiful little girls, I’ve started learning about all things parenting. In May they are coming to Orlando for one of their events and I decided I’d love to make a weekend out of it. One of the best things is that you can bring your children under 16 for free with you. They have play areas, a quiet nursing lounge, and of course all different brands there that you can try out their products and see which is right for you.
There are even separately ticketed VIP sessions to discuss things such as baby wearing, cloth diapering, breastfeeding, and more as they vary by event. Their speakers vary by event also, but past speakers include Jamie Grayson of The Baby Guy NYC, Jessica Martin-Weber of The Leaky B@@b, Bunmi Laditan of The Honest Toddler. To find out more you can visit the MommyCon website for all the details on a specific event.
