These Videos Offer the Most Hilarious Parenting Advice Ever
When you’re pregnant, there’s a whole lot to think about. There’s the weight-gain, the mood swings, the nursery-decorating, not to mention preparing to give birth to an actual human being. But once you become a mom (and realize that those hellish nine months were worth it), there’s a whole new set of questions — you’re encroaching on new territory! You’re raising a person, hello! But when you aren’t in the mood to consult your oh-so-knowledgeable mother, you can always rely on What’s Up Moms.
Whether you’re new to motherhood or on your third pregnancy, it’s always nice to get tips from other women going through the same stuff. From easy potty training pointers to kid-friendly kale smoothies to adorable DIY tutorials, the founder of What’s Up Moms, Elle Walker, shares inspirational YouTube videos to guide you through bein’ a mama.
Elle Walker got her start on YouTube as the vlogging star of What’s Up Elle, which featured wacky, comedic videos like this one:
But after having two kids, Elle decided to switch gears to what she’s most passionate about: Being a mom. Her humorous tone makes her advice approachable — almost as if you’re talking to your stylish BFF. You can expect educational and entertaining tutorials on how to potty train, inspirational ideas for gender reveals and even a viral parody of Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy.”
There are major plans to expand the year old YouTube channel, like turning it into a hub where talented women share their experience and expertise with the world, offering up a new resource for parents everywhere. Especially ones in touch with their funny bones.
