Celebs Attend Club Momme’s First-Ever ‘Fall Fest’

New and expectant parents attended Club Momme’s first annual Family Fall Fest powered by Honda at the Bel-Air Bay Club in the Pacific Palisades, Calif. on November 3.

Style’s Tia & Tamera Mowry, Ali Landry, Interior Therapy’s Jenni Pulos, Kimberly Van Der Beek, each hosted a panel at the event – which gave families the opportunity to experience the newest and best baby, kids and parenting products from brands like Lansinoh, Need Brands, and Britax/BOB.

Flipping Out star, Jenni Pulos – mom to 4-month-old Aliana Marika – loved being there. She said, “The Club MomMe event was pure heaven. Set in paradise with a beautiful ocean view, the coolest new products, and amazing moms, babies, and kids galore!”

A father’s voice was represented by Daddyscrubs.com’s Daddy Nickell.

He shared: “Club Momme was a home run hit with over 400 participants!  I participated in the daddy panel which was a huge success with very interesting questions from the audience about sex, marriage, kids and life.  Joining me on the panel, hosted by celebrity stylist Anya Sarre, were Dr. Elliot Berlin. Doyin Richards, author of Daddy Doin’ Work, and Jennifer Metter from JenniJune, bringing the mommy perspective to the panel. We had a lot of fun and enjoyed sharing parenting advice!”

Celebrity Baby Scoop caught up with Tia and Tamera to chat about the Fall Fest, their product picks and what advice they offer to new parents.

CBS: Tell us about ClubMomme’s Fall Fest.  How were you involved? What were some of the highlights?

Tia Mowry-Hardrict: Basically the event was to celebrate “Mom-preneurs”.  I was on a panel that consisted of Moms who had a vision, executed the vision and are now successful with their companies and their brand.   My job was basically to share my passion and my vision and how I launched Needbrands.com with my sister.  The best part of the event was realizing that every woman on the panel at some point experienced a challenge and overcame it.  That was very empowering

CBS: Did you learn anything new about parenting while you were there?

TM: Absolutely.  What I learned was that every working mom goes through a time where they feel guilty about working.  It’s OK.  I learned that just because there’s a sense of guilt, doesn’t mean that you’re a bad parent.  Actually many of the women’s perspectives was just the opposite.  That because of the work, they became great role models for their children and that they were able to instill great work ethics in their children and provide financial stability for their families.

CBS: What’s the one item you believe every parent needs?

TM: A great stroller.  A child grows with his stroller, it’s such a necessity.  Especially for traveling and working moms, having a great stroller for Mommy and baby is very important.

CBS: What’s your best parenting advice for new or expectant moms?

TM: It’s really important that we as moms learn how not to judge other mom’s parenting styles.  What works for you and your family, works for YOU and may not work for other families.  Another thing is, forgive yourself.  We all want to be the best parent that we can possibly be, but were also human, so take it easy on yourself.  Don’t forget to love yourself in this newfound dynamic that is created.

CBS: Tell us about ClubMomme’s Fall Fest.  How were you involved? What were some of the highlights?

Tamera Mowry-Housley: We had our NEED products there – Milky! and Stretchy!. We wanted to spread awareness to all these moms about what great NEED products we have.  Milky! and Stretchy! have natural organic ingredients and are safe to use. It’s something that’s “needed,” and it works.  I was really excited to get that out there.  I was excited to see other moms looking at the products as well. Also, my sister and I were part of a working mommy entrepreneurship panel.

CBS: You were both on the Entrepreneurship for Moms panel.  What was your role there?

TMH: It was awesome because we answered questions that encouraged and inspired other moms who had ideas to be entrepreneurs. It was like a fun get together with tons of moms and lots of fun products to be encouraged and inspired by.

CBS: Did you learn anything new about parenting while you were there?

TMH: Yes, I’m not alone.

CBS: What’s the one item you believe every parent needs?

TMH: I love the Ergo Baby – mainly because there’s nothing like holding your baby close to you and having your hands free to do other things.  I can’t live without that thing, and I love how you can use it in different positions.  Aden loves to be carried on my hip, but I can’t do that all the time.  The fact that the Ergo Baby allows you to do that is pretty awesome.

CBS: What’s your best parenting advice for new or expectant moms?

TMH: Sleep when the baby sleeps, which is easier said than done. You want to be able to do everything, especially before the baby comes when you’re nesting. Once you have the baby, you have to realize you can’t do it all and let the dishes be dirty for a while and have friends or family come over and help you.  It’s OK to ask for help, and it’s OK not to know everything.  We try to plan and prepare the most we can, which is great, but the fact of the matter is, something is going to happen that you’re not prepared for, and you’re going to be OK. You were made to do this; you’re going to figure it out.
