Top 25 ‘Mummy’ Blog Sites and Why!

Motherhood

When you’re expecting, and when you’ve just become a mother, a million and one questions can be running through your head at the same time. A lot of us tend to jump online for the answers, and when I say a lot of us…I mean most of us!

There’s so much information out there, and it can be hard to know what is trust-worthy, and what is downright spam or revenue gathering...so we at Cadenshae thought we’d take the guess work out for you – because…you’re either pregnant and super tired and don’t have the energy to sift through pages and pages of web-based junk, or, you’ve just had a baby, and not only are you too tired to sift…you actually have very little time to do anything, except care for your newbie! We hear you, so we’ve done the research!

The majority of our Cadenshae customers come from the USA, Canada, the UK, Australia and New Zealand. We’ve made it super easy for all five regions and listed the five best ‘mom/mum’ blogs in your area. And for those of you from another country, we’re sorry, but we believe you’ll still be able to get a lot out of these sites – being a mum/mom/mama is a universal thing after all!

Check out these amazing sites for some quality information, advice, tips, or just something to simply entertain you for a bit. Enjoy!

Bonus Tip: For this particular list, I found the US, Canadian and Australian sites to be quite ‘corporate,’ and ‘professional,’ with a focus on pop culture, and more research-based, scientifically quantified articles. They’re big sites with big audiences, and are large scale business. The sites from the UK and NZ however I found to be more homely, cosy and friendly. More personal, like you’re reading up on what your best friend has been doing. All are fantastic resources, and I’m not favouring any particular kind over the other, but if you’re craving a certain kind of vibe, keep this in mind.

‘Working Mother’ is a fantastic tool for our working mamas. This site not only offers brilliant advice on how best to balance the two loads, but it also keeps tabs on the best companies to work for as a mom, could be worth checking out if you’re not feeling the love at your place of work?

Café Mom

There’s so much information on here for every stage of motherhood, but the thing I like the most about this site, is it is more of a ‘news site’ focusing on stories that would most likely interest mothers and pregnant women.

Honest Mum

Vicky, a.k.a, ‘The Honest Mum,’ is a blogger and vlogger, who has some hefty awards to her name. The thing I like most is the great video content on her site. Videos talking about motherhood, pregnancy, parenting, style, fashion etc. Sometimes your eyes are just too sore to read, and a good video is a great option on those days!

Rainy Day Mum
Facebook Fans: 27k
Instagram Followers: 11k
I find this one to be a wholesome, ‘hearty’ site, and maybe it’s the name in itself that makes me think this, but this site gives me the cosy vibes as I’m looking through it. Lots of great ideas for family fun (in any weather), and beautiful ‘realistic’ meals that most of us would actually be able to make. I feel quite ‘in sync’ with this one!

Mum in the Madhouse
Facebook Fans: 37k
Instagram Followers: 11k
MITM has a similar feel to the site above, full of great recipes and excellent activities for kiddies. Lots of fun holiday craft ideas - for all the major ones celebrated in the UK. If you like the Rainy Day Mum, give this one a whirl too. Brilliant.

AUSTRALIA:
Stay At Home Mum
Facebook Fans: 527k
Instagram Followers: 31k
This website is packed full of information, there’s not much they’ve missed! It prides itself on being a little ‘cheeky,’ and it certainly is. I love the ‘Job’ section as you don’t see that in too many blog sites. A hugely helpful resource for working mums. I’m also a big fan of the ‘baby name generator,’ awesome concept.

Mum Central
Facebook Fans: 656k
Instagram Followers: 17k
Mum Central has the same sort of feeling to it as Café Mom. It’s a big site, clearly commercially successful, and has a load of interesting articles and posts on all things motherhood and much more. It’s easy to see why this site has such a huge following.

Mum’s Lounge
Facebook Fans: 255k
Instagram Followers: 11k
With news, reviews, articles galore, this is a great site and a one-stop shop for mamas. You can learn a lot about pregnancy, motherhood and catch up on your celebrity gossip in the one spot. The ‘Kids Lounge,’ I thought was a great point of difference – from boredom busters to ‘day out’ ideas, this site will entertain you, and your little ones.

Be a Fun Mum
Facebook Fans: 250k
Instagram Followers: 7k
This site is all about connecting with yourself, as well as your children. It’s about being present, in the moment, and of course, learning how to be a fun Mum! This site touches on mindfulness while offering a large number of practical arts and crafts ideas, lots of games and fun things to do with your littlest through to your teenager. This isn’t your usual mummy blog site, and I loved its sentimental values.

Oh So Busy Mum
Facebook Fans: 117k
Instagram Followers: 39.5k
This one focuses on family travel, lifestyle, recipes and mum topics aplenty! What I really liked about ‘Oh So Busy Mum’ was its dedication to the humble lunch box! Lots of brilliant, easy and fun ideas to get your child eating healthily. I also love the fact there’s good, hearty, sugar-filled baking, with no apologies! ;)

NZ:
Happy Mum, Happy Child

A great site to turn to for any Kiwi mother. This one is dedicated to making mums feel less alone, and talks openly about Maria’s (the creator) PND. Lots of news, reviews, recipes and more, Happy Mum, Happy Child should be seen by all Kiwi mums.

The Best Nest

Instagram Followers: 11k
New Zealand’s first ‘Mummy Blogger’ - Melissa Jack has been writing about her experiences as a mother for nine years. For those of us just discovering her though, her site is now morphing into something above and motherhood, with a focus on what makes a woman ‘her age’ (almost 40) truly happy, alive, vibrant and worthy. As well as reading about the usual topics, by checking out ‘The Best Nest’ you’ll be able to relate to a thing or two and learn a lot about what’s to come from someone who has been there and done that.

Becoming Mum

This is a beautiful site, which as the title suggests, discusses all things related to being a new and evolving mum from the view of its author - Jess Bovey; a 32-year-old, mother of two. It also has a strong focus on mental health and does well in raising its awareness for all Kiwi mums.

The Motherhood Project
Facebook Fans: 51.5k
Instagram Followers: 10k
TMP began when Gemma Douglas found herself in a new place, as a new mum, and with very little support. She found it hard to meet people and felt isolated. The Motherhood Project is a phenomenal resource for all mothers embarking on their unique journey, and a brilliant place to learn from other women worldwide. Full to the brim with inspirational quotes, uplifting poetry as well as advice from the professionals, The Motherhood Project has gained a huge following and fast. It’s a wholesome, friendly, supportive community.

Kidspot
Facebook Fans: 26k
Instagram Followers: 2k
It’s got recipes, it’s got pregnancy and new mum related articles, it’s got all the good stuff we love in a blog, but it adds a little more in the way its primary focus is on creating ‘memories,’ and helping you with more family fun activities. I also love the ‘Just for You’ segment, it’s all for you! Great reading.
