Mother and Baby

Nominate your favourite influencer for The Mum List 2020!

Which mums do you love to follow online? Who makes you feel like you’re, well, normal?

Keeping up-to-date with another mum’s life keeps so many of us sane, so that's why we are running our annual The Mum List to celebrate those fabulous mamas who inspire, entertain and reassure us. 

Last year, we celebrated some brilliantly-creative mums including Megan Rose-Lane, Louise Pentland and Giovanna Fletcher. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

WOW! Number flippin’ ONE in the @motherandbaby Mum List! This feels like a real honour as it’s voted by readers and if you look at the other 19 incredible women on there- sheesh! . Thank you so much to everyone who voted and for everyone that supports my social media stuff. It’s absolutely crazy how intangible online chitchat seeps into my real life and makes me so happy. I appreciate all of you so much. 💖💫💖 . It’s also lovely to be recognised by a print magazine, something you can hold and sniff (anyone else love the smell of paper??) flick through. Despite being a total social media fan, I’m still a magazine diehard and have stashes all over the house! Do you still read magazines? If so, which are your faves? . Thank you for such a lovely piece @MotherandBaby, you are Good Eggs! 🥚🍾🥚

Now we're looking for a fresh list of 2020's 20 best UK-based mumfluencers, including bloggers, vloggers or Instagrammers. 

So, whether they have 1 million followers or 100 (honestly, who cares!) it's time to nominate the women who you think deserve to be shouted about to your fellow mums.

Oh, and if you reckon you should be on our hotlist, feel free to nominate yourself - we fully advocate the hustle. 

All you need to do is tell us the reasons why you love following your nominee, along with her social media handles, and you’re good to go!

We’ll reveal The Mum List in an upcoming issue of Mother&Baby, where we’ll whittle down the entries to the crème de la crème of influencers you need to know about.

Some things to think about:

  • Feel-good factor: Does she make you happy to be the mum you are?
  • Inspirational: Does she inspire you to be the mum you want to be?
  • Relatable: Do you feel she’s a normal mum, just like you?
  • Reassuring: Does she help you cope with the challenges of being a mum?
  • Entertaining: Does she make you laugh and want to come back for more?
  • Innovative: Does she give you a unique view on life as a mum? 

Nominations close at midnight, Monday 10th February 2020
