We asked our writers what their favorite posts of 2013 were. Here’s what they said…
Highlights of 2013
In the beginning of 2013, a handful of moms and moms-to-be came together to create a space dedicated to sharing tips & tricks and inspiration & information about all things motherhood. In March, countless hours of hard work (and fun) culminated in the launch of Daily Mom. To celebrate, our 50 Days of Giveaways followed shortly at the beginning of April.
Readers won fantastic prizes ranging from our favorite clothes for nursing to high chairs to baby monitors. At the end of April we recognized Infertility Awareness Week to raise awareness about the struggles many women face trying to conceive.
In May we had a blast with our first month of daily photo challenges on Instagram and also celebrated Mother’s Day, followed by Father’s Day in June. Several of our writers packed their bags and set out to report on beautiful destinations to spend summertime vacations.
By July summertime fun was in full-swing and we shared 50 of our favorite things to do with your family during the summer.
Where Daily Mom Went in 2013
We think traveling with your family is one the best opportunities to create wonderful memories for your kids. Here are the great destinations we featured this year:
August ushered in Breastfeeding Awareness month and our writers shared their journeys with breastfeeding. Daily Mom hosted a big giveaway to promote breastfeeding as well as a breastfeeding photo contest.

The end of summer yielded to autumn weather and our Daily Moms shared their favorite autumn photo ideas, Fall bucket list, and ways to celebrate Halloween. Several of our editors also traveled to Las Vegas for the 2013 Annual ABC Kids Expo to get a sneak peek of upcoming products and trends.
During the month of December our writers created the ultimate stress-free holiday planning guide for the Christmas holiday. Daily Mom writers also worked hard putting together gift guides for the 2013 season to help make holiday shopping a little easier.
