MommyCon, here we come! {And A MommyCon Giveaway!}

Feb 6, 2015

Right now I'm just bursting at the seams (both literally and figuratively - thanks baby weight!) with excitement! My sister (who is 30 weeks pregnant!) and I are going to MommyCon Atlanta on March 28th! I have wanted to go for a few years now and was never close enough to one to justify the trip. Well, now that we're only 2.5 hours away from Atlanta nothing is stopping this mama! And now I have my sister, best friend, and soon-to-be-mama to go with me! Noah gets to stay home and have a guys weekend with Daddy and Uncle Stephen while Megan, Abe, & I hit the road for day trip. 

If you're lost and thinking, "What the heck is MommyCon?", you're probably not alone. Ever heard of ComicCon? Where tons of nerds fans get together and discuss/celebrate all things comic books? It's kind of like a mom version of that. There will be representatives from major baby brands, everything from cloth diapers to carseats to wraps and carriers. 

From 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; babywearing, 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."
There will also be special sessions throughout the day during which speakers like Jessica Martin-Weber (affectionately known otherwise as The Leaky Boob lady!), The Baby Guy NYC (car seat and baby gear expert), and Jen Labit, the founder of Cotton Babies. 

Some of the sessions I'm most excited to go to at the ATL event? 

Rewind, Rewire, and Refresh with Mindful Parenting with the Co-Founders of Attachment Parenting International...

Wrapping 101 put on by Tekhni and Ergobaby...

(don't laugh) Turning Red to Green: A Menstruation Workshop on Making the Switch to Reusables, presented by DivaCup...

and Giveaways with The Baby Guy NYC (so looking forward to that!).

I'm also really excited about seeing some of the newest products out there for mamas, testing out some fun new stuff, and coming home with TONS of free goodies. It will be so fun to be there with my sister and share that experience together, as well as meet lots of other like-minded parents. 

Each event has a slightly different schedule, with some appearances by Dr. Bob Sears, Alana Morisette, and Jamie Lynne Grummet of I Am Not the Babysitter. There are also VIP sessions that are extra on top of your regular admittance ticket. I've heard they go fast but you usually walk away with something worth way more than the extra cost! 

Have more questions? Head to their FAQ page to find out more!

Oh, and I almost forgot to mention one tiny detail... I applied to be a MommyCon blogger and I was accepted! Which means I can give my readers $5 off a regular MommyCon ticket (not applicable to pre-sale!), provide awesome coverage through IG the day-of, get to wear a "press" badge, and provide awesome info for you once I get back!
