#SoFabUOTR NYC was amazing. I cannot say enough good things about it…
But most of all, my very favorite thing: I could bring Millie with me. Working for a company that loves their workers AND their children is absolutely exhilarating. It is a breath of fresh air to have another woman come up to you, hand you a glass of wine, take your child, and fall in love with them. To have your ideas listened to while you have a baby on the breast is like nothing I’ve ever experienced before… but want to share with the world. Sure, having my 3 year old would have been a bit much, but the respect for mamas with newbies meant the world to me.
As an exclusively breastfed baby, Millie isn’t so great being without me for more than an hour or so, and a whole day? Not a chance! Being able to bring her to NYC for her first trip there was such a magical experience for me. It was our girls’ day- filled with a few wrong turns, a light rain shower, lots of love from fellow bloggers, and… nursing. Everywhere.
Millie actually fell asleep in my favorite carrier (the new Beco Toddler), that I almost convinced myself I didn’t need due to my [several] other carriers, but purchased anyway. Best investment to date, btw! So Millie, in Millie Fashion, did NYC via the boob.
On the train at 5am to NYC…
On the train at 10pm back to RI…
And everywhere in between, from Grand Central to the Streets of NYC!
If you’re looking for the best blogger conference, SoFab is it.
If you’re looking for the best carrier for larger babies and toddlers, the Beco Toddler is it. I would buy this thing again and again! The prints are limited, the weight goes up to 60 (!!!!) pounds and there is a pocket big enough for my Note4, which is the size of a small tablet. (I pair my carrier with Boba organic teething pads to protect the carrier from baby gnawing.)
Sometimes making a little investment in yourself goes a long way- this is surely the case for me! Finally going to a conference, exploring my craft, building my brand, networking, and pushing myself out of my comfort zone was the best decision I’ve made in a long time!
