One thing that is pretty universally understood is that parenting and raising kids is not an easy task. If being a mother were easy, then there wouldn't be billions of books, shows, and websites (like this one) out there to try to help with it all. Whether a mom has questions about breastfeeding, school lunches, swaddling, potty training, or she just wants to vent, most people turn to the Internet these days. And in addition to all of those resources, there is one more that we all love: influencers. Whether someone has a favorite, blogger, YouTuber, podcaster, or Instagrammer, there is something so awesome about following someone who is relatable, honest, and willing to share their life experiences with us. 

The term "mommy blogger" has become pretty popular over the last decade. Moms have built full-time careers on sharing personal essays, photos, and advice on how they survive the many struggles of parenting. And many of these influencers don't just talk about their kids, they also get candid about issues like infertility, anxiety, and postpartum depression. There are also other topics that go along with motherhood, such as how it affects a marriage, the many changes one's body goes through, and figuring out how to navigate the many different stages. Many of our favorite influencers also know how to make us laugh. From ranting about the crazy things their kids do at home to the joy many moms feel when they walk down the aisles of Target. No matter what moms are looking for, our favorite influencers are sure to be able to offer some advice, comic relief, or just help other moms feel less alone. Here are 20 of our favorite mommy influencers that every mom should know about.
