Mommy Blog is a warm and welcoming premium WordPress theme from Australian developer Dave Baker. It was designed for ‘Mommy blogs’ and sites that focus on children, though it also works with Jigoshop so can be used as a fully functional online shop.
It comes with 5different graphical headers to choose from such as a stalk carrying a baby, a baby playing in the park and a stylish woman shopping. 2 background pattern images (green and blue) are also included and via the theme sidebar manager you can display the sidebar on the left or right or remove it altogether.
A Google font selector is also included and 8 useful widgets are included such as a pregnancy counter, social media buttons and shop opening hours.
The blog index looks fantastic, with beautiful typography for post titles and sidebar widgets. Products from the shop can be shown on the sidebar too (using Jigoshop widgets).
Powered by the popular free ecommerce plugin Jigoshop, the online shop integrates with the design beautifully. Using Jigoshop you can sell physical or digital goods easily and integrate reviews, discounts, related products and more.
Product information pages look great. Sales items are noted using a sales tag and there are social media sharing buttons too (though these are absent from the blog). The theme also has a photo gallery template, contact template with Google Maps integration and header slider option.
A license for Mommy Blog retails for $40 from ThemeForest. Buyers will also get a fully layered Photoshop PSD file of the home page and the logo. I recommend checking it out if you are looking to start a mother/children focused blog or shop.
