That’s a wrap on MommyCon 2018! It’s was such a great weekend here in San Diego, we definitely didn’t want the fun to end. We saw lots of cloth diapering, babywearing, endless breastfeeding, and parents making new friends.
We kicked off MommyCon San Diego VIP Day on Friday afternoon. Moms got their gift bags at registration and were fawning over their new JuJuBe bags! They were stuffed with items from Dove, Diva Cup, Baby Tula and so much more.
Both parents and kids got some wiggles out during Groovaroo’s dancing session before the parenting sessions led by That Dad Mat and Christy and Geoff Malone of Smart Bottoms. Throughout the day, we saw so many moms feeding their little ones.
Before we know it, Saturday morning was here! We had moms grabbing programs before check in so they could start planning out their day.
These early birds got there nice and early to save a spot in line for the Exhibit Hall opening. Once the doors opened up, parents bee-lined to their favorite brands before they sold out of exclusive items. Babywearing made it possible for moms to breastfeed while shopping.
Some of the favorite sessions of the day included Ring Slings and Starting Solids: Mealtime Solutions. If you have a little one who is just starting to eat or is a picky eater, Dawn is your gal. Each session gives you new information that is helpful for all ages. We had some parents say they followed her around all day from session to session because they realized then and there that they had a picky eater.
Something brand new this year was the Cybex Family Lounge. This was a place where the whole family could hang out, take a break and even try on a carrier or two. They even had some of their latest car seats and strollers for attendees to test out.
For the mom who needed a little pampering in her life, the Dove Beauty Bar had her covered. Attendees loved being able to sit down and get a new do from our fabulous stylists. Those lucky enough to snag one of our sold-out Premium Admission gift bags took home a Dove pouch, complete with a wet brush and FULL size dry shampoo. Just call us all #refreshobsessed!
