So I hear that this year, MommyCon Chicago is going to be BIG. The Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL will be booming from March 3rd-March 5th as two days of exhibitors and two amazing conferences will both be represented! I can’t wait to go and I’m already planning my weekend!
If you’ve never been to MommyCon, it is a nationwide convention series that celebrates parenting and parents-to-be in a nurturing environment. It takes a positive approach to educating parents about the benefits of natural childbirth, breastfeeding and baby wearing. They are advocates for holistic health, eco-friendly diapering, and female self-care and wellness.
The conference spans over three days, from March 3rd-5th with the first day being a session for WEAR (a conference based on safe and accessible baby wearing practices and education) for educators and professionals. There will be no exhibit hall on that Friday. Then Saturday and Sunday are the combined WEAR and MommyCon sessions, seminars and exhibit hall showcases.
The seminars and workshops include; babywearing, birth, breastfeeding, cloth diapering, car seat safety, natural health and medicine, baby gear, childproofing and much more. They end the day with amazing giveaways and each attendee gets a gift bag from the participating sponsors. You won’t want to miss out on this!
Who Should Attend? New and expectant parents and those that have toddlers. The sessions focus on the first five years of a child’s life and advice for parents of every stage.
Here are the hours for the events:
Friday sessions: 12:00pm-5:00pm
Party Like A Mother with Abby’s Lane: 5:30pm-7:30pm
Saturday sessions: 9:00am-4:00pm
