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 are a few lifestyle mamas you should already be following on IG. Click through to see some gorgeous pics!

Wondering when your baby should sit unassisted or which activities may help your toddler wind down before bedtime? Rachel educated families about the different sensory needs of children and how important including various sensory experiences is beneficial to your child’s development. Find her here.
In the midst of the Pandeic Rachael braved the status quo on Instagram and started to share more about the realities of biologically normal baby sleep and motherhood. I was so excited to find someone else sharing this information (I have always shared this but on a smaller scale because I was afraid to open up too much about it). Rachael spoke at our The 12 Days of Breastfeeding conference and has continued to save so many families from stress, anxiety, and lack of sleep since then. She’s grown her community on and off Instagram while caring for her soon-to-be family of 5 and has even started offering some merchandise. Connect with Rachael here.
