Food Options: The convention center will have a variety of food options available for sale. Items include sandwiches, salads and hot food. If you have trouble finding the food area, just ask our registration staff. Attendees are welcome to also bring food and snacks with them to the event.
How registration works: All you need is your ID. You can also bring a printed or digital copy of your registration confirmation. If your e-ticket is unavailable, please bring your ID to the MommyCon registration desk to receive your MommyCon badge or wristband.
What do you need to bring: yourself, your bump, your baby and even your kindergartner! We plan around the growing family and offer a changing room, plush nursing area and even a play area. Children 16 years of age and under are free to attend with a paying adult. There is no limit to the number of children you may bring.
Stroller Policy: We recommend that you leave the stroller at home. If this is not an option, please be mindful of crawling children and do not block the aisles. We will have a stroller check, but we are not responsible for lost or stolen items.
Donations: We have teamed up with Share the Love for cloth diaper donations and The Carrying On Project for baby carrier donations. Both of these organizations take new and used items to give to families in need. Share the Love provides cloth diapers to families who could not otherwise afford them, and the Carrying On Project provides baby carriers to military families.
