‘New Orleans Moms Blog’ celebrates first birthday

Written by  IntheNOLA.com
There aren’t many people (or any) who remember what they did and how they celebrated their first birthday. But the ladies over at the New Orleans Moms Blog (NOMB) will certainly remember their first birthday party last Saturday…food, drinks, and awesome giveaways with over 200 New Orleans moms at the Louisiana Children’s Museum for their Moms Night Out celebration!
 
Celebrating one year of bringing all kinds of parenting news to NOLA moms, the Moms Night Out birthday party was perfect for all those moms needing a break (and a drink) “with the opportunity to connect to other local moms” and the various businesses catering to parenting.

For every set of parents, the first year brings so many joys and the same can be said for New Orleans Moms Blog co-founders Ashley Angelico and Elizabeth Schmelling. “We feel the same way any parent does when their child turns 1! You wonder where the year went, but you look back in amazement, awe and gratitude at how much you have grown, how much you have learned, and what you've accomplished. And let's not forget the sleepless nights because those come with the territory, too! As with parenting, we make mistakes and a lot of this is trial by fire, but for the most part we are just so grateful and humbled that anyone notices what we're doing! This has been a really fun adventure and we're excited to celebrate with hundreds of local moms with our Moms Night Out event.” 
 
And local moms definitely took notice with a sold out event! Birthday cake and cookies from JCB Creations, Cordina mar-GO-ritas, Stack wines, bites from Reginelli’s, Salu, Whole Foods Market, New Orleans Ice Cream, massages from NOLA Maternal Instincts (after her five-minute massage, our editor bought a sixty-minute one immediately!) and tons and tons more all within the Children’s Museum and its child-sized tables and chairs!

As a major sponsor of Moms Night Out, Touro Infirmary, the New Orleans hospital that has delivered over 145,000 babies in its 160 year history, was excited to meet and greet with NOLA moms. “As ‘the place where babies come from,’ Touro is constantly looking for new ways to connect with our mom community,” said Public Relations Manager Kristen Robinson. “We love the informal, conversational way that we get to engage with New Orleans Moms Blog followers. Our goal is to share topics from Touro’s women’s health experts that expecting and new moms want to hear about, and more importantly want to talk about. Some of Touro’s most popular series from the blog’s first year were Celebrate Your Birth Stories and Feeding Journeys. We brainstorm with the NOMB team to come up with topics that we hope readers will learn from and be able to connect with. We can’t wait to do more in the coming year!”
 
Moms Night Out was a huge success for the New Orleans Moms Blog team. For those NOLA moms who weren’t able to make it out, be sure to stay up-to-date on all the great content that NOMB offers. “We publish fresh content at least five days a week, covering a variety of topics,” said Ashley and Elizabeth. “On any given weekday, you can find our contributors and guest writers, all of whom are local NOLA moms, spilling about breastfeeding, potty training, date nights and this great city we call home.”

Ashley and Elizabeth continued, “We have several moms on our team who have bravely shared stories - of fertility struggles, postpartum depression, miscarriage and more - and that feels like a huge win to us because we know, both through comments and emails, that the content is reaching people. And that's why we do what we do.”
