Mommy Con 2018 – Orlando

 

Saturday, September 1st we headed to Orlando for my first ever Mommy Con! Mommy Con is a convention dedicated to educating parents about natural birth, breastfeeding, and babywearing. They advocate values of holistic health, eco-friendly diapering, child safety, female self-care, and wellness. They have created a community of support, acceptance, and non-judgment for parents in their journey of parenthood.

Mommy Con 2018 was held at the Caribe Royale All-Suite Hotel & Convention Center and it was a blast! It was amazing to be surrounded by fellow Moms and Dad’s, attending the sessions and checking out all the great companies. It was definitely an event worth experiencing.

There was a full day of events scheduled for both Moms and Dads. We enjoyed many Educational sessions, tested out products, and meet with a variety of parenting experts. There was a babywearing lounge, the Vagina Village where they discussed feminine wellness, a cloth diaper resource center, and play places spaces throughout the event. Huggies even provided a free diaper changing area. There was also a quiet room set up for napping babies and toddlers. I even spotted some parents napping in there lol.

There were games, giveaways, and tons of shopping! I was able to meet with some of my favorite vendors while discovering some new companies as well. They all offered a variety of products and services geared towards kids under 5.

Mommy Con 2018 was an unforgettable event, and I can’t wait to attend next year! Whether you are pregnant with your first or a mom of three, I highly suggest attending. It is the ultimate #momweekend full of fun, education, learning, samples, shopping, and the ability to test out new products! You will meet with leading experts on everything relevant to parenting. You can also try on baby carriers, get picky eating solutions, and potty training tips. It is an event every mom and dad should attend! I can’t wait to see what is in store for next year at Mommy Con Orlando 2019!

Mother’s Day Giveaway

Mother's Day (1)

Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 13th! Setting aside a day to honor Mother’s is a tradition going back centuries. Most celebrate by spending the day with their Mom and exchanging gifts.

As a Mom and a daughter, this day means a lot to me. I became a Mom at a very young age and although it wasn’t planned, it changed my life for the better. I now have three kids. I will admit being a Mom of three kids is a lot more challenging than I expected. I’ve had good days and bad days. I have even gone through postpartum depression (more on that later). It hasn’t always been easy. Yet, I wouldn’t change it for the world. The sleepless nights, the tears, the stress are worth those moments that remind me why I would do anything in the world for them. Becoming a mom has been the best thing to ever happen to me.

So many times you feel like you've failed. But in the eyes, heart, and mind of your child, you are SUPER MOM.

Let us all try and remember all the Mother’s in the world and make their day as special as possible. They may act like it’s no big deal, but I guarantee you it is. Acknowledge them and make them feel appreciated because being a Mom is one of the hardest jobs in the world.
