‘It takes a village to raise a child’ is the mantra has been passed on for eons. We do not dispute that one bit, which is why we have put together a list of the some of the best motherhood blogs for you.

The blogs belong to mothers just like the rest of us. They are not only passing on the wisdom that they have gathered from years of raising their bundles of joy, but they are also seeking an avenue to let out some steam.

You want a good laugh? Read most them and then check out the comment section. Hilarious things that children and husbands do!

Okay, enough talk, mamas, and mama-to-be.

Let’s get into it.

Diary Of A Working Mother

Jenifer, the founder of Diary Of A Working Mother, is a mother of three and a resident of  South Florida. Her blog not only talks about running around after toddlers and baby talk, but she also finds time to talk about crafts and her favorite items to bake. Actually, she throws in some yum recipes that are easy to try, seeing as her target is working mothers with little or no time to spare.

Jenifer’s recipes are not only easy, but they are also fun for children. She employs her artsy side to bring out playful pieces that children and adults will enjoy. And moms, she got you covered in her cocktail recipes!

Oh, and one more thing: this mom loves her entertainment. Of course, kids are the biggest entertainers with their never-ending observations and harsh truths, but a mom needs some real TV, no? A segment of her blog is dedicated to entertainment, where she reviews movies and TV series.

Not Your Average Mom

47-year-old Suzie is not your average mother. She is also a stepmom, wife, entrepreneur, and motivational speaker.

Safe to say she wears several hats, not least among them managing this blog. She started her blog to paint the real picture of motherhood. She admits that this journey is the hardest she has ever taken, but the most rewarding.

In her blog, she publishes harsh truths that most moms would think twice before admitting. She even posts those photos that most would find embarrassing -a messy home, spilled foods and drinks and children wrapping panty liners all over their bodies.

Her truth is refreshing in a world where honesty is overlooked.  Oh, and she curses! Such a real momma!

Mommy A to Z

Four-year-olds can be a handful. If they are not tagging your skirt to complement their Mickey Mouse t-shirts, they are standing naked by your bed in the wee hours of the morning staring at your face with curiosity.

They will then start calling your name softly and innocently ask if they woke you up. How can you be mad at that?

Such are the stories from this blog, Mommy A To Z. The blogger talks about her motherhood journey, the good, the ugly, and the in-between.

She also tackles going back t work after a long hiatus. Because you can never exhaust baby stories, she has published a book, Mommy A To Z, An Encyclopedia, covering baby talk and what to expect from a toddler.

Mommy Katie

Mommy Katie knows that other mommies have stories too, but they lack an avenue to tell them. That is why she allows contributors to tell their motherhood stories. These contributors become part of the Katie family.

Mommy Katie is not your typical mommy. She embraces childhood and gets into whatever phase her babies get into. Role play? She will be all in, bringing in costumes to complete the picture.

When she is not talking about babies, Katie is reviewing baby things, from diapers to strollers and sunscreen. She also reviews plausible holiday ideas, complete with photos of places she has visited with hers. This blog is the ultimate one stop shop for mommies.

Working Mother

This site is a combination of several articles from different contributors tackling various topics. This website addresses not only challenges faced by mothers (working and stay-at-home) but also fathers.

Apart from the usual talk about babies and how to handle them, this site also has valuable information for parents with grown kids. 

Most of the articles on ‘Working Mother’ are in list form, short, and easy to read. A segment of this blog is dedicated to careers, where working parents give and get professional advice.

Want fashion tips from professional stylists? You’ll find it in the Lifestyle section of this site. The site also has a segment for flexible work for mommies who want more time with their young ones.

Scary Mommy

When Jill Smokler started Scary Mommy in 2008, she intended for it to be a simple book where she talks about her motherhood journey, creating memories for her children so that they can read the mischief they got into during their childhood.

Well, the blog had plans of its own, clearly, seeing as it grew into this massive meeting place for mothers from all walks of life.

The reason for its success is the realness of it. The blog tackles the reality of motherhood, living up to its tagline, Mothers Are Not Perfect.

It has evolved to include videos where moms talk about their challenges and how they deal with them.

Get this: one mom confesses that she uses recreational marijuana! How gutsy!

Rookie Moms

Heather and Whitney have interesting stories. Their paths cross at a time when they needed each other the most-as new moms.

You know the story that comes with being a rookie, the baby is her, but you do not know where to start, or who to turn to. Luckily, they had each other, even though they were both rookies. Someone equally clueless to figure out baby land with, no?

Together, they run Rookie Moms, where they share their experiences and adventure. They find fun stuff to do with their kids and then document those ideas for other mommies who could use them.

We could also use good referrals, right? Did I say they have a book together? Yes, because the blog could not contain all their adventures.

Design Mom

Gabrielle Blair worked as an Art Director in New York City until she became a mother for the fifth time (she has six children). Back then, she was still a hobby designer, but she realized that her talent and eye for detail could benefit parents all over the world. That’s how Design Mom was started.

The blog takes simple pieces and turns them into masterpieces at no cost. Gabrielle uses her experience and talent to turn blank and uninspired spaces into beautiful rooms, and she shares all her working with thousands of followers from all over the world.

When she is not sharing about design or project, she is sharing details of her family’s latest travel escapade and recipes. Don’t forget the DIY crafts!

Modern Day Moms

Modern Moms is not an ordinary blog, but an award winner that is all about telling it as it is. The writers on this blog take no prisoners when they talk about the harsh realities of motherhood. The articles are varied, with the central theme being motherhood.

If you’re interested in arts and crafts, you are catered to, seeing as the one part of this blog is solely dedicated to DIY projects. Fancy videos? Most of the recipes are in video form.

The Science of Mom

Alice Callahan, Ph.D., believes in science. She knows there has to be scientific proof to most things that are beneficial to human beings, which is why she researches on each piece of information that could benefit parents into the first year at the job. Her guide is such a big deal that Johns Hopkins University Press published it in 2015.

What exactly does she talk about? She breaks down the benefits of introducing the baby to solid food in their first year of life. She also talks about safe sleep for young children. All these facts have scientific backing.

Callahan has a book, The Science Of Mom, where she extensively discusses more issues that are beneficial to parents.

Motherhood: The Real Deal

When Talya became a mom, she was surprised at how much she didn’t know. She realized that most people she had met only painted the beautiful picture, but left out the ugly, which according to her, forms 90% of motherhood. Ugly-beautiful, if you get my drift.

Talya, through her blog, Motherhood: The Real Deal, decided to be the voice of reality. She holds nothing back, and that includes publishing less-than-perfect photos and posts on this platform.

When she is not posting about her intense daughter, she talks about food and drinks that we love. Her recipes, though far apart, are easy to follow and diverse.

She shares educational material too for children and other women married to spouses in law. The wit will have you coming back for more.

Louise, also called Mama Bean, was so tired of all the unsolicited parenting advice she got that she started a blog to tell the advisers to shut up.
