Is it your first time attending MommyCon? Not sure what a parenting convention entails? Here are 5 reasons why you should attend the best convention for parents and parents to be and find out what MommyCon is all about.
MommyCon is all about building community! Let’s face it – being a parent is hard and often it can feel like you’re in this journey alone. MommyCon is a chance to connect and reconnect with like-minded parents and caregivers and bond over the things that are important to you! Join our MommyCon Discussion Groups to connect with other attendees before the event, get all of the latest announcements, and participate in giveaways!
Sessions and Workshops
A day at MommyCon includes a full schedule of educational sessions. With topics relating to all stages of parenting, from pregnancy through toddlerhood, we’ve got you covered. Meet with one of our resident educators to try on baby carriers in-person. Learn about picky eating solutions with our feeding therapist, and tackle the daunting potty training saga with our potty training guru. With more than 30 sessions to choose from, there is something for everyone!
Shopping and Great Deals
Our exhibit hall will be filled with the best local and international family brands offering a one-stop shop full of special deals to fulfill all of your shopping desires! Some of our current exhibitors include Baby Tula, Ju-Ju-Be, Happy Family, Smart Bottoms, Kinderpack and more!
Our Event Elements are some of our attendees’ favorite areas within MommyCon. To keep the hangry away, we have the popular Snack and Wellness Station which features food and nutrition samples for the whole family. While we encourage nourishing your baby anywhere throughout the convention, the Feeding Lounge is a peaceful area where you can pump some love or feed baby in private. The Rest and Relaxation Room is a great place for those little (or big) sleepy heads to take it easy and then there’s the Babies and Music area for those who need to get the wiggles out. Curious about cloth diapering? Visit our Cloth Diaper Resource Center to touch and learn about a variety of cloth diapers, all in one spot. Want to try a new carrier before purchasing? You can stop by the Babywearing Lounge and try out a wide variety of carriers to find the perfect fit or style! Not sure if you should stick with tampons and pads or switch to a menstrual cup? Head on over to the Vagina Village to discover the best method for you.
But wait, there’s more! The fun doesn’t end with our sessions, exhibit hall, and event elements. Some of our events feature exclusive access for our attendees to take part in behind the scenes tours, pop up parties, launch events and more. Past special events have included a factory tour of Britax and product launch parties from brands like LATHER, Baby Tula, Ergobaby, and Ju-Ju-Be. Stay tuned for city-specific schedules for more details.
