I am a huge fan of YouTube and have often thought about picking up the camera to share aspects of my life but am waaay too scared to do so (plus my life isn’t very glamorous so wouldn’t make for exciting viewing!)
Before falling pregnant, I watched the likes of the “big” YouTubers, such as Zoella, Sprinkle of Glitter and Tanya Burr but when I found out that I was having a baby, I found myself looking for mummy advice across the platform. I came across Channel Mum, a mummy community that prides itself on sharing advice and offering support when it comes to babies and parenthood. This led to me following specific mummy YouTubers throughout my journey, and without them, I’d feel much less confident in my decisions when it comes to my baby today.
If you’re a reader and in the same boat, perhaps you’ve just found out that you’re pregnant (in which case, a huge congrats!) or you’re a new mum, then give these vloggers a follow – their videos are informative, beautiful and are guaranteed to give you that confidence boost you may need.
Here are my favourite mummy vloggers at the moment – their advice has really helped me over the last few months and the chances are, they could really help you too.
Probably one of the biggest mummy vloggers there is at the moment, Emily was the first I came across. She is mummy to three boys and having a son myself, I love how dedicated she is to making her boys’ lives happy. Her content is positive, she is the queen of cleaning tips and mum hacks (who doesn’t love a shortcut when it comes to being a mummy?!) and whilst I was pregnant, I followed her weekly pregnancy updates and recommendations for what to buy for my baby. I’ve been a subscriber way before she hit her 100,000 subscriber mark (she is since way over 200,000) and it’s really well-deserved for her.
Sarah – This Mama Life
I’ve been subscribed to This Mama Life’s channel for about a year now and thoroughly enjoy her content. Although her YouTube channel is beautiful, it’s her blog I fell in love with even more. Filled with pastel colours and stunning images, I visit her blog frequently. When she was pregnant with her son, I would read her weekly updates and I remember reading a post where her cravings and symptoms were exactly the same as mine (this is when I knew I was having a boy!) Since then, I’ve been hooked and love watching her weekend vlogs and shopping hauls. She is also very “real” and doesn’t sugar coat motherhood in any way.
Sarah Cantwell – RoseyHome
I first came across Sarah on Instagram and love the monochrome style of her images. During my pregnancy, I really enjoyed her own weekly updates and I especially enjoyed her pregnancy and baby product recommendations (I saved myself a fair few quid by listening to her!)
Rhian is one of the more recent mummy YouTubers that I’ve come across. I really enjoy her style of videos, we have a similar passion for Next(!) and her little girls are super cute. I also love her blog a bit more than her videos – I am a blogger myself, after all! The pastel colours she uses for her brand is beautiful and if I ever had a daughter, I’d probably dress her the same as she dresses her two beautiful daughters. I also like that Rhian covers a range of very “real” topics when it comes to motherhood – something we can all empathise with I’m sure!
Rebecca is probably the mummy vlogger I most associate myself with. My son was born in November so very close in age to her youngest son. She is also a keen breastfeeder and her videos on the topic is one of the reasons I’ve managed to keep going with breastfeeding. I’ve said it plenty of times, breastfeeding is tough but thanks to her honesty and tips, I’ve managed to keep going and for that, I thank you! I’m in the process of watching her weaning videos because I’ll probably be doing something similar. She is personable and is extremely honest in her videos – something I really value. She also looks amazing in the process of raising her two boys!
I just wanted to say thank you for sharing your experiences on YouTube and for helping ladies and mummies like myself. It can’t be easy and I know I speak for a lot of viewers when I say – we really appreciate you!
