Must-See Highlights From the Last MommyCon of 2014

Adventure/ California Events/ Mom/ Social Time

MommyCon Newport Beach, the last MommyCon event of 2014, was filled with new and exciting vendors, products, and ideas. The breaks between talks made the event a comfortable pace for attendees, and allowed for more shopping and eating. Though there was a lot to see, and I didn’t get to all of it (like babywearing yoga class), there were some things that really stood out to me most at the event. Here are 8 highlights from MommyCon Newport Beach. Did you get a chance to check these out? Maybe you’ll see some of them at MommyCon 2015! Read more

How MommyCon 2014 is Breaking Records (Plus Giveaway)

Adventure/ Breastfeeding/ California Events/ Dad/ Family/ Mom/ Parent Life/ Pregnancy/ Social Time

If you’ve never heard of MommyCon, this is the post to read. It’s a newer birth, baby and family event that started in Chicago and has spread throughout central cities in the U.S. over the last few years. MommyCon traveled to San Francisco (click for my review) for the first time in 2014, and created a Babywearing World Record at MommyCon LA in 2013 with 1003 babywearing parents. This mega event is a hit with attachment parenting style parents and crunchy/natural families, but is a remarkable experience for any family expecting soon or with a little one. Organizers describe the event as: “A boutique style convention dedicated to bringing together modern parents and mothers-to-be.  MommyCon focuses on natural and organic parenting methods while creating realistic expectations in this modern world.” Keep reading for the low down on the next two MommyCon events, and info about Savvy Every Day’s ticket giveaway (valued anywhere between $40-$50 each)!

Skip the bedbugs this Summer vacation by opting for a staycation instead. Sure getting away from home can be fun, but saving a ton on flight, hotel (bedbug worry), and car rental fees can be the answer to a lot of family budget problems where the choice has to be made between either a fixed pipe or vacation. For the sake of your sanity, do both and enjoy a staycation for way less money! Keep reading for hot spot areas to vacation at for the day with your family throughout the Bay Area. Read more
