Hey! I’m Austie – aka Mama Bear!

I’m a baby-wearing, co-sleeping, breastfeeding stay-at-home mom of two – hoping to uplift and connect all mamas through this journey called motherhood. Becoming a mother has inspired me to be the best woman I can be – a happier and healthier woman – who is always on the search for knowledge to improve my life and the lives of my family.

While I still have a lot to learn, I want to share my odyssey – in the hopes to inspire other women like me to stay positive through the struggles life brings & take care of themselves along the way.  Mama Bear Knows Best is a parenting and lifestyle blog dedicated to providing useful & uplifting content to help make your journey a little easier.

Having two little girls has made me realize I need to do what I can to make this world a better place for them to live in. I believe that starts with spreading love and positivity to others. If I can make life a little easier for even one person through sharing my experiences, I’ve done what I set out to do. I want to leave something my daughters will be proud of one day.

Family is everything for me, and I want to share the sincere and sometimes savage truth about being a parent. Through Mama Bear Knows Best, I’m sharing my parenting triumphs & failures, lifestyle hacks, food recipes, shopping tips, and fun DIY ideas for the whole family. Mama Bear Knows Best combines my love for my family, passion for photography, new-found appreciation for cooking, interest in crafting & obsession with inspirational quotes – to bring you new perspectives on life.
