Mommy Blog

Mommy Blogs

Since becoming a mom I’ve loved the online community of moms who bravely, often humorously, share their parenting battles.

We’re building an exciting community of blogs and influencers from all over South Africa. In this section you’ll find many of South Africa’s top mommy blogs – I hope that they will be a source of great encouragement and knowledge for fellow moms.

If you’re looking for something else, maybe one of the blogs and influencers in our community can help. We have curated lists of all our favourite South African lifestyle blogs, food blogs, beauty blogs, fashion blogs, travel blogs, wedding blogs and auto blogs.

ADD YOUR NAME TO THE LIST

We're passionate about building an online community that shares resources and learning, as well as encouraging and strengthening fellow media influencers. We personally review all the blogs, YouTube channels and instagram feeds from influencers, making ours a powerful peer-reviewed reference. We'd love you to join us!

You can use the search box to find your favourite mommy blog.

Leigh Geary

The Mom Diaries is a parenting and lifestyle blog aimed at the modern mom. Over the last 5 years I ova grown my blog organically to create an online platform of engaged readers of predominantly South african female readers between the ages of 22 and 55 years. I concentrate on the many aspects of lifestyle : fashion (for both mom and kids!), beauty, food and decor. All the while recording snippets of our lives and sharing personal stories of life as a mom to two sons and a daughter.

Honest reflections on pregnancy & parenthood

Mandy Lee Miller

Too many only speak of the “happily” ever after of pregnancy and parenthood, I believe in sharing the everything ever after. Pregnant in Cape Town is filled with my candid commentary on my progress through pregnancy and parenthood. I embrace the fact that parenting is an incredible journey that begins the day you find out you are pregnant, and try to remember that it is only enriched by overcoming the many challenges, struggles and heartbreaks it brings with it.

I love sharing our family story (grown thro traditional & embryo adoption) and if i’m not crawling around on the floor after my children, loving them, cleaning up after them, teaching them to love & clean up after themselves… then there’s this ‘Hortons Who’ slice of life leftover to homify the house we built, shoot the deep breeze with friends, grow & eat the food we grow & advance as a natural-habitating-minimalist-momwannabe. All thro this I trust and chat to God… & if i’m lucky, I write!
