Welcome to the world of Naomi (also known as Taza). She and her hubby are raising their five little ones in the heart of the Big Apple — and doing it with style! On Naomi’s blog, she shares her family’s adventures in the city that never sleeps as well as their travels all over the world.
Whatever stage of motherhood you’re in, this is one of the best mommy blogs to offer tips for handling countless different scenarios, from newborn diaper rash that won’t disappear to prepping your preschooler for their first day at school.
If you’re looking for a pregnancy blog, this one’s going to keep you equally informed and entertained. It’s more than that, though, offering tips for new parents as well as for anyone who’s able to help other than the parents (the “village” — because we all know it takes one).
When Joanna got pregnant with twins (her babies #3 and 4!), she realized how important it was to have an honest community of mothers to support each other. This was the inspiration for her blog, which has grown over the last several years and today is an online women’s lifestyle magazine that’s redefining life post-baby.
Moments of Musing
For a blog that empowers mothers — and all women — check out Jackie’s blog. It offers a collection of musings on being a mom, a wife, and an optimist with the underlying message that you are more than good enough.
This is one of the most popular mommy blogs out there! It’s got loads of information geared toward moms, ranging from parenting tips to career topics, fun craft ideas to easy recipe inspiration. Created for the “Woman Behind the Mom,” you’re sure to find plenty of great content to incorporate into your own life.
This modern lifestyle brand calls itself a manual for motherhood, offering inspiration and expert ideas on anything and everything mother related. You may not only find the information you’re looking for, but also a community of mothers to support you on your journey.
As blogs on breastfeeding go, this one takes the cake. It’s written by Kelly Bonyata, an international board certified lactation consultant and mother of three. You’ll find evidence-based articles on almost any breastfeeding topic you can think of and some parenting tips as well. If you’re breastfeeding, be sure to bookmark Kelly Mom.
Pick Any Two
We love this blog’s tagline: “Because moms can do anything, but not everything.” It’s so true, and the inspiration provided by Katie, the founder of this blog, is real and honest. Give this blog a read for support in figuring out how to make it work in the best way possible for you.
Not the Super Mom
Kerine is NOT a super mom — but she does the best she can to balance motherhood with everything else and uses this blog to share her experiences (and hopefully provide some inspiration). She shares her perspective on a number of issues mothers face without the underlying pressure that if you’re a mom, you need to be doing it all.
Caryn Bailey started chronicling her son’s early life online, but has now developed her blog into a comprehensive lifestyle resource with information on food, crafts, entertainment, travel, etc, all from the point of view of a mama and NICU nurse.
Helicopter parenting (or some version of it) is becoming increasingly common. But does it benefit our kids? On her blog Free-Range Kids, Lenore Skenazy cover a wide range of topics on raising “safe, self-reliant children (without going nuts with worry).” Sounds like a concept everyone could learn a thing or two about.
Meg, a mother of two girls, created Lucie’s List as “a survival guide for new moms.” After struggling through her first pregnancy and early motherhood, Meg started her blog on all the things no one tells you about being a mom. She’s got lots of helpful insights and you’re sure to get a few laughs along the way.
Highchairs & High Heels
This motherhood blog keeps it real as Tara documents her adventures with her two kids while staying stylish, too! She’s always discovering new activities to entertain her little ones and also shares plenty of advice on travelling as a family.
Dad or Alive
We thought we’d throw a daddy blog, too; this one specifically is a stay-at-home dad blog. In Dad or Alive, Adrian Kulp shares his experiences staying at home with his four children in a funny, personal, and heart-wrenching way. Definitely worth a read for any parent.
