Parenting can be quite a journey. You may sometimes find yourself in unfamiliar territory and realize that you have endless unanswered questions.

Perhaps you are looking at ways to lose pregnancy weight or want to know how to create a healthy diet for your family. Maybe you want some tips on how to balance work while being a busy mom or learn ways to raise bilingual and multicultural kids.

When you find yourself struggling, it helps to turn to mommy bloggers who love to share practical tips and advice for navigating motherhood. They often share their stories authentically and unapologetically. You can rely on their stories as motivation and inspiration to push through tougher days.

Latina mommy bloggers bring the unique perspective of their culture, language, and life experiences into the parenting journey. Here are 10 Latina mom bloggers we love.

Laura Fuentes

Laura Fuentes knows how to juggle multiple aspects of her life at once. She has kept herself busy through the years: tackling a fast-paced career in the corporate world, raising three babies, working from home, and eventually founding her own company.

Fuentes started her blog in 2010. She wrote about her experiences as a mom. She also shared recipes she created for her family. When she experienced a huge health scare from exhaustion, she decided to put her health and well-being first.

This led to an overhaul of the content on her blog. What started as a blog about family stories and recipes now also helps moms achieve personal and professional goals. Expect parenting tips, articles on self-care, information on healthy eating, and advice for achieving work-life balance. Articles run the gamut from "Starting a Workout Routine When You Have Kids" to "How To Make Your Dreams a Reality."

In 2021, Fuentes took on her next venture: founding MOMables, a healthy meal-planning service for families. MOMables was created after Fuentes struggled to find healthy wholesome recipes that her daughter would like for school lunch (instead of less nutritious prepackaged meals).

To date, MOMables has helped approximately 80,000 families eat better with meal plans, healthy diet programs, and recipes. The goal is to give families the resources they need to reduce sugar and processed foods from their diets.

Fuentes has also written five cookbooks and made appearances on the "TODAY Show," "Good Morning America," Univision, and Telemundo.

After leaving the corporate world, Duarte founded En Tus Zapatos, a multimedia platform and blog for women. There, she shares advice for meeting challenges that many women face, such as finding a balance as a working mother. She also creates content around self-care, beauty, fashion, and fitness. Rely on her to share styling tips for dressing kids in trendy clothes.

Her latest venture is the Warrior Princess (or Princesas Guerrera) project, which she created to help raise awareness around gender inequality and mistreatment of women.

De Su Mama, which means “from your mother,” was born out of Bell’s desire to capture the love letters she wrote to her daughter as she was growing up.

Bell, who is currently based in Cuba, believes that moms play a powerful role in passing down the family legacy and cultural heritage to the next generation. “We all have moments in our lives when we feel insecure in our identity—even as multiracial moms, it’s often hard to know if we’re getting it right,” says Bell in her blog.
