Best of the UK Parent Blogs: Ten at Ten (54)


Top Ten British Mummy and Daddy Bloggers

So, it’s Friday morning and we have another great selection of posts from UK parent blogs, this week courtesy of our guest editor Lauren, from Real Housewife of Suffolk County. Earlier in the week, Lauren asked how we find time to blog when we’re so busy – a great question, let us know if you know the answer!

In the meantime, over to Lauren to find her favourite 10 posts on UK Mum and Dad blogs this week: 

Lauren writes: My first mention has to go to new mummy Heather from Stay At Home Mum Loving It who told us her very positive birth story on her blog this week, and introduced us to Tiny Ched. Congratulations again Heather.

I’m really interested in how other countries and cultures celebrate religious festivities so especially enjoyed reading about how Emma from A Matter of Choice celebrated Easter in Cyprus. She also told us of the tradition of Name Days and how she celebrated the day for Leo.

I’m a sucker for a post about a child’s relationship with their parents so the post from Katie at Mummy Daddy and Me Makes Three about the relationship between her husband and their daughter was right up my street. Just look at the way they are looking at each other in the photo. Goosebump alert.

As a wimp myself I have a real fear of my children being the same when they grow up. Kate, The Five F’s Blog, posted about the same issue and asked How Do You Teach Children To Stand Up For Themselves?

As wedding season approaches I’m sure I’m not alone at panicking about whether or not to get a babysitter or attempt to take the boys with me to the ceremony and reception of any weddings I’m invited to. Not My Year Off shared her experience of How To Go To A Wedding With a One Year Old.

Love From Mummy shares a beautiful photo of Monkey, born 10 weeks prematurely. I bet you can’t read this post, about her most precious gift ever, without tearing up.

I love taking my sons to see their 93 year old great nanny, and Sonia from Mummy Constant shared a lovely moment of when her grandparents built a den with Noah. It’s a pretty cool den.

Something a bit more in depth which will definitely get you thinking about what you believe in is a post written by Alyson. She asks Can Thinking Something Make It Happen?

A thought-provoking post from Vicki at Vegemitevix this week about our similarities with Elle Macpherson, and the question – do women need balls of steel to succeed in business?


Last up this week is this fantastic post from Who’s the Mummy, who asks – are people who send their kids to private school snooty? What do you think?


Sally Whittle is founder of the Tots100, Foodies100, Trips100 and the Flea Retreat. When she's not working, she can be found blogging at Who's the Mummy, or having fun with her 13 year old daughter, Flea.

  1. Thank you for including my post, it’s the first time I’ve been featured I was really excited when I noticed 🙂

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at with any questions or comments.

Thank you!

The Flea Network Team

Got it!
