Are you a mom to little ones or expecting a baby? If so, I urge you to check out MommyCon! In March, I attended the MommyCon Chicago event and it was so much more than I expected. I'm a bit of an introvert, so to say I was nervous is an understatement. Not to mention the fact that I was just getting into the nursing groove with our youngest, Savy Baby and not a nursing in public expert by any means. MommyCon promised to be a nursing and baby wearing friendly environment so I decided it just might be a great experience after all. Savy Baby and I set off around eight o'clock on a Sunday morning for our very first adventure together. Of course, my Boba 4G came along too!
The day was amazing. It was filled with tons of expert led sessions, such as The Badass Breastfeeder, The Leaky Boob, The Baby Guy NYC, Honest Toddler, and many more!
There was an interactive expo filled with tons of sponsors and their products for us to learn about, speak with and try out with our little ones. There was a babywearing lounge, where you could try out various carriers with your babies and toddlers. Tons of cars eats and baby gear, like strollers, to test drive.
In terms of amenities, they were plentiful, from the well organized and stocked baby diaper changing stations to the comfortable nursing and feeding lounge, moms and babies/toddlers were well taken care of.
I was a little nervous about being able to bring a baby and still listen to the speakers, but as soon as I arrived and the first speaker began I realized how laid back this event was. If you needed to nurse your baby during the speech, you could. If baby/toddler/older child needed to stretch and play, there was a huge play area filled with toys at the back of the main speaking room. The perfect solution so mom could listen and the little ones could play.
Check out the below video giving you a sneak peek inside this event!
