I am so happy to be an official MommyCon Blogger of 2015!
I attended MommyCon in Chicago last year, while I was pregnant and had a lot of fun. This year, I will be attending MommyCon Minneapolis with Amelia in tow 🙂
For the next several weeks I will be doing a lot of blogging and talking about MommyCon. I will be offering FREE tickets and I will also be offering a discount code so you can receive $5 off your tickets!
Some of you may be wondering, what is MommyCon? So, let’s start with the basic information and get you as excited as I am!
What is MommyCon?
MommyCon is a natural parenting style, influenced convention. The event is full of speakers, workshops, shopping and much more! It is a great event to attend whether you are about to become a parent or are already a parent, there is something for you. You can learn about cloth diapering, babywearing (even try on some awesome carriers), breastfeeding, bottle feeding, etc. There are so many different resources available to see and ask questions.
When is MommyCon Minneapolis?
It is Saturday, April 18th 9 am – 5 pm and will be located at the Hilton Minneapolis/Bloomington.
How much are tickets?
Tickets are $35, but if you use the code MIDWESTMOM15 you will receive $5 off!
Can dads attend?
Of course! Last year, there were several dads that attended the event. They can learn just as much as you!
Can I bring my baby and do they need a ticket?
Yes! Bring your kiddos! Children who are 16 years or younger are FREE with their parent.
Can I bring a stroller to the event?
You are allowed to bring a stroller, but due to the high volume of traffic and attendees, it is recommended to wear your baby.
What if I need to feed my baby?
MommyCon is okay with however way you need to feed your baby and wherever you want to feed your baby. They do offer a special lounge area for just women also.
Are there special hotel accommodations?
There is a block of hotel rooms at the Hilton Minneapolis/Bloomington. The rate is $99 per night and you must book by March 18th.
As we get closer to the event I will be talking about LOTS of things to see and do, talking more about the speakers, and more. Of course, if you have any questions, please do NOT hesitate asking! You can post here or e-mail me!
I am looking forward to sharing this with you and I hope you ALL attend!
