As if giving birth weren’t enough to show your motherhood status, an increasing wave of slogan, statement and mum-emblazoned tees, sweats, bags and accessories are proving big hits in our online shopping bags. I’ve rounded up 5 of the best to add to your wardrobe and show you’re mothering like no-one’s judging…
1. The bag
Make a practical statement with Mutha.Hood’s Mothering like a boss canvas tote, because not only will it save you endless 5p’s in the supermarket (a mum who saves the world too? Hell, yeah, we’re on it!) it’ll finish off your look with a proud-to-be-a-mum punch.

2. The jacket
Update your jacket game with Malcolm & Gerald’s personalised varsity jacket. The monochrome colour way keeps it sleek while the added touch of your little one’s name(s) on the back keeps it personal, and a one-off. I actually asked this fab brand if they’d create the MAMA style for me (there’s also a fab WIFEY option too!) and voila – it’s now available online, so join me in your exclusive jacket-wearing!

3. The t-shirt
We all need a simple slogan tee to add a bit of fun to our wardrobe and black text on white goes with everything. Bax & Bay’s foxy logo is incorporated into their bold MAMA FOX tee from which £2 of every t-shirt sold is donated to The Miscarriage Association. A truly deserving cause raising awareness and supporting mothers, which you can donate to in style by purchasing this tee. Wear with anything from jeans and trainers to a sequin skirt and heels (like this mama!).

4. The pyjamas
We all need pyjamas, so why not make them fun and functional. This monochrome pair from Selfish Mother’s collaboration with PJ pros The Bright Company will look good, feel good and do good too. £10 from the sale of this design goes to MOTHER2MOTHERS, who employ, train and empower mothers living with HIV, called Mentor Mothers, to end paediatric AIDS.

5. The jewellery
Treat yourself, add it to your birthday wishlist, or perhaps even suggest it as a ‘push’ present; Hoochie Mama’s MAMA design bracelets and necklaces are ideal for everyday wear to add a little something to your outfit while reminding you of your parenting status – like we need a reminder, I know!
6. Create your own
Well, I said 5 of the best but here’s a bonus number 6 for you! If you’re feeling creative, why not create your own tee or bag. Mother, Mama, Mummy, Mamma, Maman; whatever your mini one(s) call you, make it a total one off and design your own mum-branding with Printsome.com. Perhaps a personalised t-shirt or bright tote for you or a fellow super-mum.
