MommyCon is this weekend!

Mommy-Con Minneapolis is this weekend! There are still tickets available (use discount code THENIHADU15) and I’d love to see you there!

On Friday night I will be going to the VIP events.  Although I’m not currently expecting a baby and my kids are in the toddler stage, I’m looking forward to learning more about resources and products available to parents.  I hope to someday pursue certifications or “official” training on breastfeeding and car seat safety, right now I just love to be a resource and provide guidance. Here is a little about what I will be learning:

First VIP session will be by the founder of Cottonbabies, Jennifer Labit.  I met her not too long ago when she visited Minnesota and she is truly a lovely person.  I look forward to hearing more about how she started and runs her business and more about it’s current state.  I admire the good work her company does and the Bumgenius diapers are what we mostly use for cloth diapering.

Next will be a session on Babywearing.  I have a couple of carriers that I’ve used with my littles, and I’m excited to hear more about what Beco and Ergobaby have to say!

Then I’ll get to see Jamie Grayson, BabyGuyNYC.  I started following him on social media maybe a year ago, and I think his story is just so neat! I’m hoping he shares some of his favorite things for toddlers too, but I will just enjoy meeting him and Angry Baby!

Last will be The Leaky Boob‘s founder Jessica.  Breastfeeding and women’s rights related to that are very important to me.  Beyond that is empowering mamas to make the best choices for feeding their babies.  I look forward to seeing what she and the other folks have to say in this session.

Let me know if you will be there so I can make it a point to meet up with you!

MommyCon Minneapolis 2015

Happy Monday!  I have the pleasure of being a MommyCon blogger this year, and I am really excited to share this great event with you!

MommyCon is coming to Minneapolis on Saturday April 18, 2015.

This will be my first time attending MommyCon, and I’m looking forward to it!  Taken from their website, “MommyCon is a boutique style convention dedicated to bringing modern parents and mothers-to-be together. Our focus is on natural and organic parenting methods and timeless tidbits as we journey through parenthood together. Our seminars and workshops include; babywearing, birth, breastfeeding, cloth diapering, car seat safety, natural health and medicine, baby gear, childproofing and so much more! We end our day with amazing giveaways and each attendee gets a gift bag from our sponsors.”

As you may know, mommyhood is the best thing that has ever happened to me.  I am passionate about breastfeeding and car seat safety, and we practice cloth diapering, babywearing and some natural health and medicine aspects in our household.  Most of all, I love supporting other moms and helping them wherever they are at.  I am excited to go to this event and learn so much more from vendors and experts.

I hope some of you will attend with me!  Here is the schedule: http://mommy-con.com/minneapolis-schedule-revealed/.  Look it over and see if anything interests you!  It is a very fair price for attending, and you can bring your little one along.  Also, if you would to save $5, please use the discount code THENIHADU15.

If money is an issue for you, please let me know:  I have one very discounted ticket that I could give you!
