If you’ve been around for a while, you’d know that I’ve been attending MommyCon since their very first conference in Las Vegas many moons ago. However, in previous years, I attended as a professional nanny and often used it as an opportunity to socialize with my crunchier friends. Of course I loved attending, but it wasn’t a big deal if I got caught up chatting with a friend or shopping in the expo hall.
This year though, I fall into the expectant parent category, and have decided to use this as an opportunity to attend sessions that would benefit myself and my family not only as a new mom, but as a parent who wants to be informed and knowledgable on many of the topics that will be discussed throughout the day.
A few sessions that I’m looking forward to attending specifically include: Medications and More During Pregnancy and Breastfeeding, Your Vagina is Magical, and What Love Tastes Like. I will also be attending the PAXbaby Playdate during the lunch hour. I have big, big hopes for this year and I’m excited to share a recap, as well as my thoughts, after the event is over!
I also have intentions to attend MILK: Orange County in November after our little bean makes his debut. If you’re planning on attending one of the remaining events throughout the year, I would love to know what sessions you’re looking forward to and what you hope to take away from attending! If you’d like to attend any of the remaining events for the year, but don’t have a ticket, use the code NATURALLYWC16 to get $5 off your ticket over on the MommyCon website.
I hope to see you there! :)
