MOTHERS can vlog, too!
A lot of moms now have shared their parenting tips online. One of their medium is the social media specifically Youtube. Here are some of my favorites.
First on the list is Elizabeth or Liz (her Youtube channel is iLovebeingaMommy), who has over 240,000 subscribers with a collective 35 million views on all of her videos.
What hooked me to stay updated with her channel is her cleaning routine and daily routine as a mom to Ethan James, Emma Juliet, and Ezra Matthias (who are all under 5 years old.)
Her husband, Eric James, is very supportive with filming (and helping) her in their everyday routine.
Another reason why I love watching Liz’s videos is that she exclusively breastfeeds her son Ezra. Anyway, most of my favorite Youtubers support exclusive breastfeed.
Another mommy vlogger that I follow on Youtube is Emily Norris (a mother of three boys.) She has around 370,000 subscribers with a total of 53 million views.
When I was pregnant, I always watched her pregnancy videos like monthly updates, and birth vlogs.
Her videos were like my support system because I was curious about her experiences too.
She also inspired me to create my own Youtube channel (Ara Casas) where I also give weekly updates and tips. You may want to subscribe and watch my videos, too (LOL!)
I also get ideas and inspirations like for baby essentials from Pinay mommy vloggers, namely Reese, Kris Lumagui, and Mommy Ruth. They are also first-time moms to their one-year-old boy. Honestly, watching their videos give me insecurities (SOMETIMES) because I cannot help but compare their child to my child, especially on baby’s milestones. But I realized that it is never good to compare. Each child has her/his own strengths and weaknesses.
Motherhood bites off more than what you can chew. It can be tiring, stressful, demanding and tough on most days, but it is the most rewarding and fulfilling job in the world.
This can be true as shown on the vlogs and videos of my favorite Youtube moms who, without any pretension, show off what does it mean to be a mother.
