The Nicol Nest (aka my family) is headed to MommyCon Chicago this weekend and I could NOT be more excited about it!
What is MommyCon?
MommyCon is a nationwide convention series dedicated to creating and nurturing a community of parents and parents-to-be in celebration of natural parenting. MommyCon takes a gentle and positive approach to educating parents about the emotional and physical benefits of natural birthing, breastfeeding and babywearing. We advocate values of holistic health, eco-friendly diapering, child safety standards and procedures, and female self-care and wellness. Our mission is to create a community of support, acceptance and non-judgement for parents journeying through parenthood.
So basically, it is a gathering of natural-minded parents where you can attend educational sessions, shop to your hearts content, and meet like-minded mamas and daddys! New this year is DaddyCon, which is geared towards dads and their adventures in parenting, too!
What I am MOST excited about is the Pink Lady Get Together that will be hosted by Ju-Ju-Be after the Saturday sessions!!! A Pink Lady is someone who LOVES Ju-Ju-Be (the best diaper bag/bag in general company e-v-e-r) and is a proud supporter/user of their products! We will hopefully get to see the new print that their bags are coming in, hang out with other Pink Ladies, and maybe even get some swag or a giveaway! Honestly, I’m just excited to meet other Pink Ladies in real life!
We are so stinking excited to be attending this year and meeting parents who share similar mindsets with us! We will documenting our adventures in Chicago as the weekend goes on!
