This is a sponsored post. I was given a ticket to MommyCon. All opinions are my own.
My first experience with MommyCon was in 2015.
I bought my own ticket to the MommyCon Columbus and went when I was 37 weeks pregnant with Olivia. My favorite takeaway were all the vendors. I got to meet the owners of Applecheeks and stopped at a local store’s table. I ended up buying a new Moby wrap for pretty much nothing.
This wasn’t my only reason for attending. I’ve always known I was a different mother than anyone around me. I preferred more of the “crunchy” side of motherhood but never really knew where to look because not too many people around me embraced it. With Noah, I wore him for a while and even tried cloth diapers. But without help and support, I gave those up.
With Olivia, I was sure I wanted something I felt was better for me. I started researching cloth diapers and went to MommyCon to learn more about things that I wanted to do with my children. I mean, check out the preliminary schedule for the Chicago MommyCon coming up in a couple weeks:
This year, I’m headed to MommyCon Chicago, which also is a part of the Wear Conference. Wear: A Babywearing Conference is focused on promoting safe, comfortable and accessible babywearing education. The conference seeks to educate and preserve indigenous babywearing practices while showcasing the latest in babywearing fashion, design and innovation. You can purchase tickets for everything on the MommyCon website. A general admission ticket for each day is $45, or you can purchase all 2 days for $75. Remember, my code “JUSTBEINGMOMMIE17” gives you $5 off any general admission ticket for any MommyCon this year!
