MommyCon Recap

October 31, 2016 5 Comments

If you were keeping up with my Instagram page, you would know that I was a Scene Reporter for MommyCon San Jose. I posted photos of the event all day long and had a great time with the sponsors and vendors. I was able to catch up with old friends and make some new!

For those that don’t know, MommyCon is a nation-wide convention for natural parenting. It’s for parents and parents-to-be. There are panels and workshops, and a showcase hall of exhibitors. They touch on natural birthing, breastfeeding and babywearing.


I checked in at 8am, with my two littles and we walked around the hall. A lot of the vendors were just setting up and getting their booths ready. It was nice to catch up with some organizations that I participate in and see some friends. I was able to sit through Cloth Diapering 101, with Jenn Labit of Cotton Babies speaking. Each session had a play area in the back, so the kids had fun, while I was able to listen.

There was an amazing babywearing lounge, sponsored by ErgoBaby. There were so many different types of carriers. What a huge variety! You were able to try them on, and they had babywearing educators who helped you with anything you needed. I’ve never seen so many carriers at once! It was nice to walk through there and speak to them. They were some passionate educators, that just really love to help. They were great.


We took a break for lunch and walked around outside. There’s a brief break from the rain and we were able to check out the restaurants that were near the convention center.

We rushed back to check out another session. This one was the Scaredy Cat Potty Training, done by Super Undies. I was extremely interested in this one, since Tot is almost to the point of potty training. We are almost there! It was quite informative.


I was able to check out baby carriers, diaper bags, homeopathic medicine, cloth diapers… the lists goes on! I also got a pretty awesome swag bag (goody bag) at the end. If you’re a parent, or a parent-to-be, I would check MommyCon. They just announced their dates and locations for next year!

  • This wrap is so beautiful. ⁣

I received Dreamer with a cotton/hemp weft yesterday. This weft is hand dyed by Echo over at @chicibeanz for the collaboration with @appleblossomwovens. ⁣
⁣
The pooling of the hand dyed yarn really makes it looked striped almost. It almost looks like a totally different wrap compared to the black linen weft I’ve been using. ⁣

  • I got surprised with a trip to @Disneyland for Valentine’s Day. It’s so crowded because of the long weekend. There’s even lines for the bathrooms - every bathroom. We haven’t gone on many rides, but we’ve checked out more shows than before and looked around for hidden mickeys. The weather has been perfect too. ⁣
⁣
I hope you’re on some adventures this long weekend. What are you up to?⁣

  • We rarely get to drive over the Golden Gate Bridge. I hate tolls and I also hate driving over bridges, but this was too much fun to not. ⁣
⁣
The kids fell asleep right before we even made it, but I was going to go for it. I’m glad we made a trip out of it, even though the car ended up breaking down. Nobody stopped to help. The few people I did get to ask refused to help 🤷🏽‍♀️⁣
⁣
At least we got to check it out. 🌉
  • Dreamer is a dream. This wrap is gorgeous. I loved being able to test it all weekend in the city. ⁣

  • I’ve been looking for any copies of my maternity photos with Dumpling since I suck and I can’t find my copies. @bijoubabywearing was able to find some of me wrapping Tot in Baskerville Boardwalk and I couldn’t be happier. I love the bubbles in this one. @paintingskies did such a great job with this shoot. My family had so much fun with her. ⁣

  • When your friend @koalacuddlesbabywearing  needs shots for upcoming educational material for @happybaby and you drop what you’re doing at @disneyland to check out their onbuhimos 😂💕⁣
⁣
This Marigold onbuhimo was easy to get in the shoulder to shoulder height and pretty comfortable. I might need to snag one. ⁣
