8 Must-Follow Parenting Bloggers
Check out our top 8 must-read parenting bloggers below:
Must-Read Mummy Bloggers
Emily and Indiana
Emily is a mum of three and uses her parenting blog to document life as a young mother. Lovingly known as “the littles”, Emily’s three children, Indiana, Parker, and Lilah, feature in The Siblings Project – weekly updates on what they’re up to. And www.emilyandindiana.com is where she documented her pregnancies and continues to explore her family adventures in Kent.
The Spirited Puddle Jumper
Becky heads up www.spiritedpuddlejumper.com and is a crafting, décor-loving mum of three. We particularly love her crafting ideas for the children, with lots of ideas to keep them occupied on rainy afternoons. Check out her homemade rocket backpacks – they’re super simple to make and once the kids are done crafting, they’ll have their rocket backpacks to keep.
The UnMumsy Mum
Sarah, known as The UnMumsy Mum, started blogging in 2013 when she found it difficult to identify with the glossy parenting bloggers that neglected to talk about the more difficult aspects of parenting. On www.theunmumsymum.co.uk Sarah is honest about her experiences of pregnancy, and life as a modern mum. We love Sarah’s openness about her struggles as a Mum, poking fun at some of the weird things we do as parents (including the race against time to find a public toilet when your little one just has to go).
Let’s Talk Mommy
Jenny is an American expat and mum of three children who not only runs www.letstalkmommy.com but is a regular vlogger too. With a penchant for home interiors and recipes to die for, we love her #littleloves - these are her top buys, reads, home interiors, and things to look out for that week.
Our favourite Daddy Bloggers
Dave at the thedadventurer.com is a stay at home dad blogger, who take us along on his family adventures, regularly posting videos too. We love visiting the ‘Humour’ section on his blog, where you can find out more about how to dress like a stay-at-home dad, and the things you probably shouldn’t do as a dad…
Slouching Towards Thatcham
Tim provides his tales from the front line of fatherhood at www.slouchingtowardsthatcham.com and we’re so glad that he does. With regular updates on his three children and observational posts about their everyday adventures, we’d recommend subscribing. Not to mention, Tim also posts musical parodies. What more could you want from a parenting blog?
Dad Blog UK
John heads up dadbloguk.com and has been a stay at home dad since 2011. John launched his blog to share his experiences as a stay at home dad and regularly posts product reviews and shares parenting advice. Expect to read more on how to cope with the trials of family life, such as the correct age to let the children walk to school unaccompanied, and money saving tips.
Dad Up North
If you’ve not visited dadupnorth.com just yet it’s a parenting blog that will have you in tears…laughing. As Dad Up North reminds us “This isn’t a blog or place to come to get expert parent advice”. Instead it’s a place to share common family experiences and catch up with the latest adventures of Dad Up North and his adorable daughter, Effy.
Hopefully, you’ve found your new favourite blog among our top parenting blogs list, and discovered some experiences in common with the bloggers. Whether it’s budgeting, tips to keep the little ones entertained, or advice about the children’s sleeping habits.
