Instagram, many have a love-hate relationship with the popular app. Because how wonderful is it to scroll aimlessly through that endless feed? A small escape from reality, between day-to-day operations. Unfortunately, it is also incredibly time-consuming and we often subconsciously compare ourselves to others more than ever. Fortunately, we ourselves have a lot of influence over who we follow and when we do it. In this blog we tip five mothers who each inspire us in their own way.The Sanne Life
Looking for a daily dose of humor in your feed? Search no further! 30-year-old Sanne is mother of son James, daughter Isa and recently gave birth to a brand new daughter. She is known for her witty humor and hilarious characters. With her honest view on motherhood and statements like: “Home is where me chip is” she makes many laugh.
Elise is a mother of three kids who navigates life through bustling Amsterdam. She shares her honest vision of motherhood and does not shy away from the downs that parenthood entails.

Through her Instagram she shares everything about the ins and outs of busy family life and her businesses, her unfiltered view of parenthood and gives fun, sustainable and useful tips.
