Hi, I’m Carly!
Thanks for stopping by to check out The Mamma’s List.
I’m just a working mom trying to get things done and stay caught up as life rushes by. I hate the feeling of being behind and am constantly trying new strategies to get more efficient and productive, both at work and at home.
I’m really passionate about helping new moms make the transition into motherhood. I love sharing anything that has worked on our parenting journey. Here you’ll find parenting tips and products that have helped me survive this mom gig.
The Mamma’s List has information on all the baby phases, products and milestones, as well as organization and productivity tips I use to keep us all on track. I’m a big believer in all things that drive efficiency because I found out pretty quickly that moms have no time.
I graduated with my MBA in 2012 and have been a brand marketer at a Fortune 500 company since then by day. I’m an online shopper, product researcher and travel planner after bedtime. As a new mom, combining all those roles became too much and I felt like I’d never be successful at anything again.
After coming out of the newborn haze, I realized I wanted to help new moms get through the challenging transition with more peace and grace than I allowed myself.
My goal with The Mamma’s List is to take some of the research and guesswork that comes from parenting off your plate so you can spend more time doing what you love, with who you love.
The daddy behind The Mamma’s List is pretty fantastic – and although he has supported me in everything I’ve ever pursued – says that my lists have lists, (hence, The Mamma’s List) and threatens weekly to ban Pinterest from my computer so I don’t get any more ideas.
We have two lovely little ladies, and my oldest is who inspired me to create this blog. As I entered motherhood, my entire world was turned upside down. Through the transition of redefining myself as a mom, I realized I felt totally unprepared and was overwhelmed much of the time.
So, once I was through the newborn phase and felt like I got my life back on track, I became super passionate about helping other new moms make the transition. I started this blog and haven’t looked back. There is so much information out there that sometimes you don’t even know where to start, which is where I come in. You’ll find a ton of resources here from pregnancy through the toddler years. I love talking to readers, so always feel free to reach out if you have questions!
I’ve created a resource library with everything from printables, a newborn/toddler packing list, to breastfeeding cheat sheets and household budget templates in order to help you on this journey.
