The MommyCon 2016 season has already ramped up and I am so excited for the Seattle event! After attending the first Seattle MommyCon event in November I knew that I had to be come back again for the 2016 date.
The MommyCon events are always star-studded with amazing speakers; including blogger The Leaky Boob, BabyGuy NYC and Jennifer Labit (owner of Cotton Babies cloth diapers).
Last November my blogging bestie and real life friend That Mama Gretchen and I took the night out to have some much needed catch up time and a girls night before her little man Reid was born. We had a late night snack at the hotel bar, and retired to our room to chat about what we were excited to see the following morning.
Not only were there great speakers in the main room, but the smaller break out rooms had great sessions as well. I really enjoyed the Wrapping 101 class with Ergo Baby and a cosleeping consultation (which gave me the umph I needed to help begin Ruby's transition to sleeping with her older sister Penny!). The seminars include topics on babywearing, parenting, breastfeeding, cloth diapering, car seat safety, babygear and so much more!
Truth be told, that Wrapping 101 class did me some good because Cassiope Wovens was doing a super fun instagram giveaway of a MommyCon exclusive wrap and guess who won? THIS GIRL! Her very first wrap!!
Big WOOOHOOO for joy! Thanks @cassiopewoven and @drbabywearingdad for the awesome prize of a #mommycon edition of your beautiful wraps. I spent all day thinking about them and really wasn't sure if I could leave the event without one. Can't wait to start wrapping. #mommyconseattle #mommyconsea #cassiopewoven #castaliacotinga #wovenwrap #wearallthebabies #cassiopewovenscavengerhunt
So if that doesn't give you the push to visit MommyCon this year, here's the schedule for the upcoming Seattle event.
In addition to all of these "grown up" talks, there are tons of kid friendly activities too! There's a toddler play area, crafting, a quiet room for nursing or napping and usually a food vendor for kid snacks and more. Don't be afraid to bring your child, co-parent, or anyone else who is interested.
Now- the super fun part-
