In honor of World Breastfeeding Week we wanted to highlight a mom organization called MommyCon. If you are not familiar with this amazing organization, it’s a parent convention that is focused on natural parenting workshops as well as seminars from guest speakers like Alanis Morissette, Dr. Bob Sears, Dr. Jay Gordon, Jamie Grayson (the Baby Guy) and Jessica Martin-Weber (The Leaky Boob). I am honored to be a presenter at MommyCon; I provide a seminar called 'Why Toddlers Fear New Foods (Food Neophobia).' Other seminar topics include: breastfeeding, baby wearing, cloth diapering, car seat safety and more! If you are looking for an engaged community that is passionate about the love of parenting, MommyCon is for you.
MommyCon also hosts the famous MILK conference. MILK is an annual infant feeding conference for parents and parenting professionals. The seminars give parents and healthcare providers practical and accurate advice on how to nourish families and support nutritional decisions. If you have a child that is struggling with feeding or you are looking for safe support with breast, bottle or a combination of both, I highly recommend going to this informative and fun conference. I’m also a guest speaker for MILK and my topic is 'Feeding Myths: Sippy Cups, Pouches, Pacifiers, Positioning, Prolonged Breast Feeding, Poor Medical Advice and the Picky Eater.'
Team ezpz has been a proud supporter and sponsor of MommyCon for the past two years. MommyCon has events all over the country, so check out their site here to see the upcoming schedule. This year, the MILK conference is in Orange County California on November 11-12th. To get more information or to purchase MILK tickets go here. I hope to see you there!
