Between breastfeeding the baby and making dinner there isn't a lot of time to really sit down and do some crafts or read a whole blog post all the time, which is why Instagram has been so big for moms. It's visually stunning, quiet (because you have to tap to turn the sound on) and sort of a one-stop community for parents to chat, shop cute stuff and feel like they're not alone in the world. But to get the most out of Instagram you really need to be following the right accounts for awesome pics that bring a smile to your day, or give you a sense of community. Here's a few lifestyle mamas you should already be following on IG. Click through to see some gorgeous pics!
Lynzy is one of the hardest working mamas I know– I don't have a clue how she does it all! She works 12 hour plus shifts at a hospital, gets her butt up at like 4 a.m. to go for a run, and manages to have white furniture in a home with 2 kiddos! Her feed is soft white and often hosts #latenightnursingfeed, where mamas can ask and answer questions while they're up late with the littles. Find her, here.
This Utah mom has been working literally all day and night to figure out just how Instagram works for other moms trying to figure out how to actually see the people they want to, and to get the reach they need to connect with others. She just launched a series of guides for other IG moms looking to deepen their IG engagement, too! Her feed has a creamy white look to it and focuses on mom and baby life. Connect with Lizz, here.
