MommyCon 2016 Giveaway

With only a few events left in the year I thought it would be a great time to do a giveaway for a pair of MommyCon tickets.

But first, What is new? 
 MommyCon  has released a new app that has all information regarding your local MommyCon event.

MommyCon also has two ticket options. One option is the General Admission option which cost $45 dollars. This includes access to the exhibit hall, all Saturday General admission seminar, workshops and an awesome gift bag. Another option is the Expectant Parent ticket available to expectant parents and parents with Newborns. This option is $100 and includes all benefits of the General admission ticket plus a Beco Ring Sling and a special session on how to use it.

Of course there is also the VIP ticket options for special sessions on Friday. The VIP sessions available and ticket pricing vary from city to city. Links for your city are included below. 

What is MommyCon?
Well, it is a convention centered on parenting, babies, baby gear, and parent support. It mainly focuses on the more natural / organic side of parenting, BUT no one is preachy on this subject. They advocate for it, but also don’t shame parents for doing things differently. (more on that later) Vendors from many different types of products such as breastpumps (evenflo, ameda), swaddle suits, teething products, all natural baby and home care products, car seats, etc. You name it, they have a vendor or a booth that has it. 
There are also different seminars you can attend I will post the schedule so you can see what types of informational seminars there were.
You meet really neat and some really odd parents…HA! I was probably the weirdo.
There are VIP or sessions you have to pay extra for but also get these amazing goody bags from.
