Tomorrow we are headed to Memphis for MommyCon, a natural parenting conference. We are thrilled to be at this event as an exhibitor. It’s not too late to grab a ticket and join the fun to this well reviewed natural parenting conference!
There is a large variety of sessions to attend on a vast array of topics. Something for most everyone.
Don’t consider yourself a natural parent? To be honest, I didn’t even consider myself one, but I suppose looking back that our parenting journey thus far has some natural elements woven throughout.
Breastfeeding - Our girls were originally nursed, although our journey ended earlier with each one than we had hoped despite our best efforts and constant support and help from IBCLCs.
Baby Wearing - This was the only way we survived the first six months of the crazy world of Irish Twins. Two hands and two babies sounds like enough. It’s not. Especially when your youngest is the epitome of a velcro baby.
Cloth Diapering - Ok, I’ll be honest. I never in a million years thought I’d be a #clothy mom, but when our very sensitive youngest daughter had a rash that would not go away despite trying different diapers, wipes, and creams, I gave cloth a shot. It went away in just a few days, her skin looks more clear than ever, it’s saving us money, and it’s pretty good for the environment as well. It’s really not a big deal and only an extra load of laundry here and there.
All in all, what I have found is that most everyone has a few things in common, and while not everything on the session list speaks to my own heart, there are things of interest to me. While I’m also glad that others have a place to talk and learn about their interests as well. What an awesome thing!
I hope to see you there! Make sure you stop by, say hi, and enter our giveaways! I can’t wait to meet you!
