Even though I don't have kids, I find mum blogs a fascinating read. Maybe it's because I'm marveling about how much they're multitasking, or maybe it's because I'm impressed by the fact they've managed to grow and birth actual real humans. Or maybe it's because they're interesting women, with interesting lives, who also just so happen to be mothers. Whatever it is, there is a spate of incredible mum blogs around right now that I can't get enough of, with many stylish mums showing off not just how they throw together an outfit but how they dress their kids too.
There are, of course, amusing anecdotes about breastfeeding, as well as blog posts helping to share and demystify the myths about motherhood. But whether you're a mum or not, I've rounded-up the sharpest, funniest, and most stylish mum blogs on the internet right now. Keep scrolling for our guide to the best mum blogs.
Samantha Silver and Gemma Rose Breger are the cool duo behind This Is Mothership. Samantha is the former beauty director for Stylist magazine and Gemma is a celebrity stylist. They've brought their years of working in both the fashion and beauty industries together and have given mums guides on wardrobe staples as well as the best beauty pieces, plus much, much more.
Anna Whitehouse is the hilarious writer behind the Mother Pukka account. If you don't already follow along with her Instastories, I suggest you do so immediately. As well as mum advice, she's also great for post-partum info, especially about where to shop breastfeeding-friendly tops and dresses.
While this is predominantly a fashion blog, founder Nat Lee says her blog is also a place "to inspire mums to celebrate their uniqueness, share their struggles and experiences, and to show that there’s no such thing as perfect and anyway perfect is boring." Well, I'm sold.
Based in Arkansas, Hannah Carpenter is a mother of four children, who she homeschools, but also manages to be a freelance illustrator and brand consultant on the side. Her husband is a college English professor, and the couple, along with their kids, appear to live an idyllic life. From how they dress to their gorgeous but lived-in home, this is a totally dreamy mum blog for interiors and wardrobe inspo.
Looking for a thoughtful present for a new mum? That's where Steph Douglas comes in, who offers the gifting site Don't Buy Her Flowers for alternative present ideas. She also writes a blog called Sisterhood and All That.
Clemmie writes the life-saving blog Mother of All Lists, which helps to keep some semblance of sanity for mums (or so I've been told), thanks to the ability to see humour in those tough situations. She's also great for stealing maternity-wear advice.
I probably don't need to introduce Jools Oliver to you, but it's worth remembering that she's had five kids, so she knows what she's talking about. Not only that, she also co-designs the cutest kidswear brand, Little Bird Clothing, which is very '70s-inspired this season.
Follow Hollie de Cruz of The Yes Mum blog for some serious inspiration (and courage) if you're a new mum. Plus, the cute dress ideas never go amiss either.
Clemmie has four daughters, so, it's no wonder her blog is aptly titled Mother of Daughters. From how to holiday with the kids to looking cool and collected, this is how to do parenting in style.
