MommyCon! MommyCon! MommyCon!
|Nora during Chicago MommyCon 2015|
Personally it is a chance to spend time learning about issues with being a parent, including cloth diapering, breastfeeding, babywearing, sleeping (the baby/kids that is), and other issues with being a mom and parent in these times. I loved the speakers last year and felt that I was able to learn new things that encouraged me to try new things that I hadn't done with either of the kids. This year it is going to be even more exciting! They are expanding a bit more into early childhood for those who are out of the baby/toddler phase of parenting and putting some more Mom-focused areas into the program because you are your own person too. There will be 80 exhibitors in the hall to find new products, shop, and learn more about. The Keynote speakers this year at Chicago include body positive photographer Jade Beall of the Beautiful Body Project, Sally Kuzemchak of Real Mom Nutrition, Jennifer Labit, CEO of Cotton Babies, and acclaimed actress and YouTube sensation Angel Laketa Moore. I've heard and know of some of these speakers but others are new to me so I'm excited to meet some heroes and find some new favorites in the parenting scene.
