Our 3 favourite parenting YouTube channels


Being a mom in this modern age of amazing technology can be overwhelming. While there is so much information at your fingertips, it can be a bit overwhelming.

But one of the great parts about parenting online is that there is a sense of community and a feeling that you're not alone in this and yes, that is a normal thing for your child to do.

One of my favourite things on YouTube are the parenting channels. I've learned so many tips and tricks from these channels and there have been quite a few lifesavers when it comes to making healthy things for the family or keeping my toddler busy.

Here are three of our favourite channels:

What's Up Moms

I've been following the What's Up Channel for a while now. They post every Monday, Wednesday and Friday and cover various topics. Elle, Brooke and Meg each have their own area of expertise and share videos about DIY decor, easy crafts for kids, healthy and yummy snacks, parenting tips and hilarious parodies.

Their "I'm So Pregnant" parody has over 38 million views to date:

Mum's Eye View

I came across this channel when one of my favourite family of vloggers, The Michalaks, were featured on there. They feature a lot of well-known British YouTubers who do all sorts of family related content. From yummy not so healthy snacks, parenting tips, fun things to do with your kids, hauls and many more.

Stef Michalak did a great Star Wars haul with his 2-year-old son Grayson who is both cute and hilarious.

Mumspiration is a South African YouTube channel that is very similar to the Mum's Eye View channel. They cover everything from beauty tips for moms, delicious recipes and some DIY, it's all about inspiration for moms.
