South Loop Moms N’ Tots is a group of South Loop moms supporting each other on our motherhood journeys. We host events, big and small, to engage our kids (age 0-5 years) and provide fun, stress-free settings for us to meet with other moms in our community. Our active email list helps us stay connected between face-to-face meetups. We'd love to have you join us!
“ My neighbor told me about SLMNTs when I was pregnant with my first in 2010. I joined immediately and thank goodness I did! This group has been such a blessing. It taught me so much about parenting. It was the village I so needed. And the friendships will undoubtedly last a lifetime.” - A Former SLMNT Member
