Today, I’m excited to share my list of the absolute top Instagram accounts for new moms.
As every new mom figures out really quickly, there is a lot to know. Of course, much of comes to us innately, but some of it, not so much.
And then there’s all that time spent feeding, rocking, holding bubs.
Much of it spent admiring every perfect little square inch of their face and soaking up that angelic newborn smell.
Some of it spent scrolling.
While I personally do my very best to savour each second with my sweet little guy and stay very present, the truth of it all is that momming is hard.
And every now and then, you just need to tune out and take a little vacation to the world of Instagram.
When you do, check out these accounts that do a simply wonderful job of educating, supporting, encouraging and well, just making you laugh out loud sometimes!
