Before diving into New Year goals, resolutions & plans I wanted to take a quick look back at the year of 2018 on Let’s Be Mom Friends. I was interested to see which Blog posts were your favorites, which were the most read, most asked about and also share with you a few of my own favorites. So let’s get right into it.., The Best of Let’s Be Mom Friends (2018 edition)…. I separated the posts into 3 categories: MOM LIFE, STYLE & TRAVEL Scroll down and check out some popular posts that you may have missed!
The #1 most read post was my BABY REGISTRY MASTER CHEAT-SHEET. This is also one of my favorite posts because it was one of the first guides I wrote when launching Let’s Be Mom Friends. If you’re registering for the first time be sure to give it a read! You can find all pertinent registry info stored in one spot or for a closer look at a particular registry section just click on any of the VOLUMES (I provided more color on what products I registered for and why.)
I was actually surprised how many reads the MOMS ON CALL post received! This was the only set of baby books I read as a new mom. Developed by Two Pediatric nurses the books are a straight-forward and especially helpful for first-timers out there. The series includes both a scheduling app + 3 separate books for Basic Baby Care (0-6 months), Next Steps Baby Care (6-15 Months) & Toddler.
The PostPartum Workout & Yoga Routine post was one of MY personal favorites because it was something new for me. I partnered up with a friend (and private yoga instructor) Mary Sabo who created an exclusive work-out routine for ALL OF YOU to practice in the comfort of your own homes! Mary even filmed a video for your reference and the workout was designed to be postpartum friendly. Check it out!
Another popular post of 2018 in the MOM LIFE category was all about Potty Training. I shared Rosie’s potty training success story and how we mastered potty training in a little under a week. Check out my tips and personal anecdotes in PART 1 & PART 2
One of your favorite gadget & gear posts this year went to the 2-in-1 Bath Mat & Storage system. I love finding unique baby & kid products that make mom’s life easier… plus it’s always a bonus when they have multi-purposes. I will definitely be sharing more favorites this year!
Partnering with Dudley Stephen’s to style some of their mother/daughter fleeces in this BLOG POST was one of my favorite COLLABS all year long. It’s no secret I love this mom-backed brand and it’s pretty clear from your feedback that you guys do as well. They are rolling out tons of new styles this year so stay tuned for their latest launch in February. In the meantime check out some of my favorite current styles: HERE & check out my interview “Keeping it Mom Chic” with Lauren on the DS website!
Postpartum Attire & Dressing was one of your most requested and most read STYLE posts in 2018. I rounded up my favorite nursing tanks, dresses, pajamas, leggings & more. Also worth a read: Maternity Finds Guide
My Montauk Guide was one of the most read posts of all which makes me so so happy because not only did I put a ton of work into it but because it’s my ULTIMATE HAPPY PLACE.
This BLOG POST idea came directly from you guys which was fun because I got to show you around my hood! Please keep sending me your requests I love focusing on topics that I know are of particular interest to you guys!
ROME RECAP: WHERE WE STAYED, ATE, TOURED & DAILY LOOKS. This was a new type of blog post for me where I recapped our entire trip to Rome this year. I hadn’t done many travel posts in 2018 but hope to add more of this to the BLOG in 2019.
