5 Reasons to Attend MommyCon
September 27, 2016 4:25 pm | by

The last MommyCon of the year is just around the corner! Dedicated to creating a supportive, non-judgmental community of parents (and parents-to-be), MommyCon encourages and educates parents about the benefits of natural birthing, breastfeeding and babywearing.

Cotton Babies is proud to be the presenting sponsor of MommyCon. Our Founder and CEO, Jennifer Labit, attends every conference to connect with and educate parents on the basics of cloth diapering in her Cloth Diapering 101 presentation. As she walks through the essentials of cloth diapering, she’ll give helpful tips and stories to assist you along your cloth diapering journey. Whether you’re new to cloth diapering or a cloth veteran, you’re sure to walk away more confident and encouraged in your cloth diapering journey.

Not only will she offer valuable advice, but FREE product too! With a demonstration table full of product to give away, Jenn’s favorite part of the presentation is playing Oprah at the very end. “You get a diaper! And you get a diaper!” Believe us – you will not want to miss the fun.

Have you gotten the opportunity to attend this nationwide convention yet? For those of you located in the San Jose area, we’re hoping to make that happen for two of you! But first, let’s talk about why you should attend MommyCon.

1. Fun, Encouraging & Educational Sessions & Speakers

Whether you’re looking for parenting advice or simply need a weekend away, MommyCon is the perfect event for you. From educational classes and product demonstrations to comedic and motivational sessions, each presenter is an expert in their field with first-hand knowledge. They come to the platform with personal stories and advice from their years of experience.

MommyCon’s session categories include: The First Year, The Second Year, Toddlers and Beyond, Designed for Mom and Great for Dads. Filled with real, honest experiences, advice and lots of laughs, you’re sure to find multiple classes you and your partner will enjoy. The titles alone will grab your attention! To name a few: Scaredy Cat Potty Training, The ONE Thing You Need for a Joyful Motherhood, What Love Tastes Like, You’re Going to Do What? Where? With a Who? — And many more!

2. A Safe, Judgement-Free Environment

If you love (or are interested in) babywearing, cloth diapering, and breastfeeding, this is the place for you. You’ll find mamas walking around, babywearing in their favorite wraps and Tulas, nursing their little ones through the sessions without a worry, and cloth diapers galore. Every parent is there for the same reason – to connect, learn and enjoy themselves. So, whatever choice you make for your family, come relax, enjoy and feel comfortable simply being yourself.

3. Connect with Other Local Families!

It can be hard at times for parents to get out and make friends, but MommyCon provides a positive atmosphere to bring parents with similar interests together to connect, learn and grow together. Sure, you can join online mommy groups to build friendships, but at MommyCon, most of the parents who attend live nearby. You could potentially find a life-long friend!

4. Little Ones are Welcome!

That’s right! Not only are they welcome, but kids 16 years old and under can attend for free (with a paying adult, of course). MommyCon goes the extra mile to ensure families feel accommodated. Not only do they provide diaper-changing rooms and nursing areas, but a play area for the older little ones as well! Don’t worry about your little one crying or making noise during a session. Every other parent around you understands and may even be experiencing the same situation.

5. Product Demonstrations, Giveaways & More!

Multiple vendors attend these events with product samples, demonstrations, giveaways and more. Here, you can chat with the vendor representatives to get more information about their product and test the product before you purchase it. Some brands may even provide free samples in the MommyCon Attendee Bag you’re given when you arrive.

If you haven’t already attended a MommyCon event, now’s your chance! To sweeten the deal, we’re throwing in a few extra Cotton Babies products for you and your little one to enjoy while you’re there.

    I’ve never been to Mommy Con but I have a friend who goes every year and raves about it. I think being surrounded by a community of like mind mommas who all are interested in growing and learning together would be my favorite part.

    The wife and I would love to get out and meet other parents. The seminars would also be very informative.
