Fav Things: Baby Blogs

I don’t want to be a mommy blogger. Please tell me my 90% baby related blog content does not make me a mommy blogger. Shit. Well, if I’m going to be a mostly mommy blogger, can we all agree that at least I’m a snarky and honest about parenting? These were some of my favorite blogs for pregnancy and infant knowledge and humor.

Pregnant Chicken – Pregnant Chicken is really the only blog I had sending me status updates while I was pregnant. There is generally great content, but the weekly pregnancy email updates were always great to read.

Kick Ass Birth – Holly is the best. I took birthing classes from her, but her blog (and now online classes) about childbirth should be read my any expecting parent. She’s down to earth but also so much fun.

Wonder Weeks – Based on Dutch guy’s theory about how babies grow and develop, it hypothesizes that during certain periods of time your infant is going to be crankier than other times. Even if it’s just a placebo effect, reading about the development of young infants and reminding me that fussy phases are just temporary helped calm my sleepless new mom nerves.

Lucie’s List – This is a great site for advice and product reviews. The cover a wide range of topics and questions new parents are going to have. I’m still looking to it as I turn towards potty training for opinions and options.
