Being a mom can be super overwhelming. There is so much information out there on how to be the best parent for your kids that it is impossible to take it all in.
We all want to be the best parents we can be and we try to make the decisions that will work best for our families and our kids.
Sometimes that means that the decisions we make don't match those of our mom friends. Maybe you decided to breastfeed but your friends are all formula feeding. You have no one with which to discuss your concerns about the correct latch or how to handle breastfeeding in public. Maybe you chose to cloth diaper and your friends find disposables better fit their lifestyle. Maybe you are all about attachment parenting but your friends, not so much.
While this doesn't mean you can't be friends, it does mean you might be lacking the comfort and support of mamas who know exactly the struggles and trials that you are going through.
This is where Mommy Con comes in.
MommyCon is a nationwide convention series dedicated to creating and nurturing a community of parents and parents-to-be in celebration of natural parenting. They provide resources on breastfeeding, baby wearing, cloth diapering, women's health, child safety and more.
The best part is that you don't have to ascribe to all of those things to enjoy the info and camaraderie of the conference. Maybe you chose breastfeeding but you use disposable diapers, like me. Not to worry. There is no mom bashing or shaming here.
Their mission is to create a community of support, acceptance and non-judgement for parents journeying through parenthood.
The conference is coming to New York on April 7, 2018 at the Grand Hyatt New York located at 109 E. 42nd St., New York, NY 10017.
While the exhibitors list has not yet been released, if last year's event provides any example, it is sure to be an amazing line up.

There will be speakers on every baby and toddler parenting topic you can think of. They have experts on baby wearing, cloth diapering, breastfeeding, women's health, attachment parenting, and more. You can get the whole list of speakers here.
