Yesterday morning I was cruising through my Bloglovin' feed around 5am while nursing Billy and stumbled upon some information about BlogHer '13.
I've heard about BlogHer through..well, being alive and blogging as long as I have and have always dreamed of going. I remember seeing something earlier this year about it being in Chicago this summer but knowing I would have a tiny infant who is EBF, I never made plans to attend or did any research whatsoever.
Well, yesterday morning at 6:43am @BlogHerEvents notified me that they welcome moms with babes and provide lactation lounges for nursing.
I started to research cost and brought it up to Hubs...weighed my options...and finally asked @BlogHerEvents to reach out to their followers and they ever-so-kindly obliged.
Being one of the biggest P-Dub fans around, I might leave my house at 5am on Friday to get there in plenty of time to see her Keynote. NOTHING I TYPE CAN EXPRESS THE EXCITEMENT I FEEL RIGHT NOW!!!
I've decided to just attend Friday, see how it goes, and come back Saturday if Billy and I feel up for it. I will be wearing him in an Ergo carrier and nursing all along the way as he needs it... but my latest concern is diaper storage.
As many of you know, he's cloth diapered and he always has a pretty nasty reaction if I put him in disposables when I'm in a pinch. How can I carry my babe, his clean AND dirty dipes for a day around a conference? Hmmm.
THANK YOU to @BlogHerEvents for taking the time to help me answer my nursing questions and for all the moms who have encouraged me on Twitter to take the plunge!! I can't wait to see all of you there and meet you in person!
If any cloth diapering mamas have tips and tricks for using cloth while on-the-go I would GREATLY appreciate it!! I may just give our gPants a wing again and see how he handles them. Hybrids to the rescue?? I hope his bum agrees :)
Comment if you'll be at BlogHer '13! I would love to meet you! I can't wait to put my business card stamp to awesome use.
