A Little Something for the #BlissdomBabies

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on January 27, 2010

BD_Pink4In a little over a week I will be attending one of the most anticipated bloggy conferences of the year, and my personal favorite – BLISSDOM ’10

Excitement has been building for many months. Posts have been written on how to prepare and what to expect. There is much talk about what to wear and which shoes to pack; whether to bring an extra bag for swag; and, for mamas bringing their precious babies, whether or not to bring the stroller. Newbies are getting advice from alumni. Questions about how many business cards to order were silenced by the fact that Blissdom attendees received a Poken, from ConAgra, in a fabulous Prep for Bliss package.

If you are anything like me, you’re more than just a bit anxious now to see our plans come to fruition, as we count down the days. Plans to see friends and meet our blogging heroes. Plans to squee and hug and cry. Plans to learn from each other and build on and create lasting relationships. Plans to stay up late and get up early. Plans to get our bliss on.

I am very excited that my good friend, Rebecca, and her beautiful baby, Anna, will be joining me on my trek to Nashville for the weekend. I don’t have any teeny babies who I must bring along, but I’ve been thinking about all I would do to make it easiest on myself and on others, if I did. Soooo, I’ve been working with a few of my favorite companies and PR peeps, and together we’re gathering some goodies to help make mama’s job as blissful as possible during the conference. Not just Mama Rebecca, but all Blissdom Mamas!

Here’s where I need your help. I already have a pretty good list of Mamas who are bringing their babies, BUT if you are Mama to one of our #BlissdomBabies, please link up, leave me a comment with your baby’s gender and age. Trust me, you’ll be thrilled with what I have in mind for you and your babies!


If you are a company who would like to help me bless these brave mamas, who are bringing their beautiful babes to Blissdom, please email me at [email protected] for more information!

I’m bringing Ridley (boy) 1 yo! And I’m with Alyssa, my son is crawling everywhere too!

Thankfully my DH is coming along for the ride and to babysit a lot for me! Of course there will be lots of time for baby kisses! :)

Wow, Chris — how fun!!

I’m bringing Sidney, a 4.5 mo girl (and my sister to help with her because because she’s a bit…needy).

Thanks Christine!!!

Tyler is 2.5 months old…and a boy ;)

I’m bringing my sweet little Sadie Grace! She’s 9 months old and not quite yet into everything – but close!

Thankfully, my DH is coming to help and hang out with her most of the conference.

Thanks in advance for whatever it is you’ve got cookin’!

Baby girl, 7weeks.


Mercedes January 28, 2010 at 2:31 pm

That’s great! thank you so much for the generous offer! I am so happy my little baby girl will be a Blissdom Baby even if it means having to miss most of the parties. She is 4 months old.



Megan {Velveteen Mind} January 28, 2010 at 2:40 pm

I’m bringing Olive (not her real name, you know), my 3 month old baby girl. And yes, you may hold her. Oh, and her favorite color is diamonds. (not sure what your budget is on these goodies) Thanks, babe!


Stephanie @ Keeper of the Home January 28, 2010 at 2:40 pm

Thanks so much, Christine! I’m bringing my sweet little girl, Johanna, who will be almost 6 months old. :)


TheThriftyMama January 28, 2010 at 2:52 pm

My girl is 22 months :) Probably the oldest one in the bunch.


Crystal @ Money Saving Mom January 28, 2010 at 4:50 pm

I’m bringing my little guy, Silas, who will be turning 9 months old at Blissdom. I think he and Colin might be ransacking the place… but we’ll love ‘em anyway, won’t we? :)

Thanks so much for doing this; I’m excited!


Renee January 28, 2010 at 4:57 pm

I am bringing my 2.5 year old son Mekhi. This should be interesting! LOL


TheThriftyMama January 28, 2010 at 7:02 pm

Is that him in the photo? He is darling!


Cheryl@SomewhatCrunchy January 28, 2010 at 5:04 pm

My baby is 2. Looks like most are under a year so if he’s too old to participate, I understand. But he’s coming, he nurses and he loves his mommy. :)


TheThriftyMama January 28, 2010 at 7:01 pm

Mine is almost two at 22 months :) She nurses and loves mommy num num! You won’t be the only one!! :)


SuperJenn January 28, 2010 at 5:30 pm

SuperBaby boy will be in attendance. Ryan is 4.5mo. :)

How fun! Thanks, Christine!

I’ll have Ivy- she’s 16 months!!!



steph January 28, 2010 at 6:50 pm

My daughter is 5 months, thanks Christine, great idea! :)


Rachael January 28, 2010 at 7:28 pm

DH and I chatted about it and agree that we’re concerned it would mess up Pineapple’s schedule too much to be away…and he wants me to have ‘Rachael time.’ I explained that much of this may be spent crying from missing Pineapple but he said he’d miss her, too and I’ll have fun stuff to keep me busy ; ) I’m betting he’s right!

Looking forward to meeting all the other kiddos, though!:)


sprittibee January 28, 2010 at 8:50 pm

My little man is 10 months! So sweet of you to think of us! Thanks!


Erin Chase January 29, 2010 at 12:46 pm

We should try to gather all the #blissdombabies and mamas for a photo…but I’m afraid all the cuteness might cause camera lenses to shatter!!! ;)

Thanks for working on this Christine!!!



Christine - From Dates to Diapers February 1, 2010 at 2:56 pm

It looks like the @iHeartFaces gals plan to take a #BlissdomBabies photo on Friday morning, during breakfast!! :)


Jessie January 31, 2010 at 4:41 am

I’m bringing my daughter, Sophia! She is one year old :) Can’t wait to meet all of the #blissdommamas and #blissdombabies :)


laura @ hollywood housewife February 2, 2010 at 9:39 pm

Am I too late? I just found this and think it is so sweet. I’ll be bringing my little 3-month-old baby girl to Blissdom and am so excited about the who weekend!
