Motherhood can often feel like an isolating experience, even when you're not dealing with self-isolation, which is why so many new and seasoned mums turn to social media to seek out fellow mothers to reassure them they're not alone.

With many UK-based parents taking to Instagram, YouTube and their own blogs to share a glimpse into their lives with their audience, Mother&Baby have released The Mum List 2020, a definitive list of the best mums to follow for inspiration, entertainment and that all important feel-good factor.

This year's list has been topped by breastfeeding vlogger, business owner and mum of two Chaneen Saliee.

"I feel like I have loads of mum friends, because they message me with how they can relate to my content. They all suggest trying things, and groups I'd never thought of or knew about. I feel like I get so much advice, and I want to give that back. To have fellow mums who you can relate to and who are non-judgemental is so vital," Chaneen told Mother&Baby.


Take a look at The Mum List 2020
