In May I’ll be attending the Texas MommyCon Mini in Austin. My sister lives there with her twin daughters and we’ll be attending together with both sets of twins. I’m very excited!
What’s MommyCon you ask?
MommyCon is a boutique style convention. The focus is on natural parenting methods such as birth, breastfeeding, natural health and medicine, baby-wearing, cloth diapering, and car seat safety. In 2013, MommyCon will be touring the United States, traveling to seven cities: Las Vegas, Chicago, Phoenix (Mesa), Austin, Philadelphia, Portland, and Kansas City. MommyCon is a family friendly event and will have plenty of changing tables and comfy chairs for mom, dad and yes, even grandma. Adults 18 and over need a ticket to attend, but there are companion passes for the second family member in your party. Bonus: in the back of each seminar room they have toys for mom and baby to play with!
What will you see at a typical MommyCon? Seminars include awesome guest speakers like Jessica of The Leaky Boob, Jamie Grayson The Baby Guy NYC and many others! Each attendee will go home with a gift bag stuffed with great baby products. It’s a total mom-fest with cool products, entertaining and informative speakers, and professional demonstrations.
