Brand Ambassador Highlight Featuring Brianna Hofsteadter

How did you become a brand ambassador, and what drew you to the particular brand or products you represent?
I was told about this brand searching for ambassadors and I figured I’d give it a shot and apply for the position. What drew me to Clever Baby is the products they have/sell. My little one is 4 months old and their products are so helpful and fun for parents to use with their kiddos!

How do you integrate the promotion of the brand into your daily life or routine?
It’s very easy for me to promote this brand… the products are good and helpful to all parents at any developmental stage and/or age. When my little one uses these products I always take a ton of pictures no matter what, so these pictures are what I use to promote and share with others!

Can you tell us a bit about your journey as a mom and some of the challenges you've faced?
I am a first time mom and it has been an absolutely amazing experience so far! Of course, I have felt moments of doubt and fear of not knowing if I’m doing the right thing, like I’m sure most first time moms feel at some point. But, I have grown so much throughout my motherhood journey!

What are some of your favorite moments or milestones as a mother?
It’s definitely hard to narrow it down to just a couple - but I would say seeing my sweet boy grow every day. Seeing how his personality changes and grows as well as how he physically is growing so quick! He lost a ton a weight after he was born and took awhile to gain the weight back to be within a “healthy percentile”. So, when we finally went to the doctor and he finally gained a good chunk of weight, it was the happiest feeling and sense of relief!

How do you balance motherhood with other aspects of your life, such as work or personal interests?
I do have to say that this is one of the things I struggle with the most in motherhood. I find it difficult to create a positive balance between my own personal time/hobbies and of course being a mom and caring for my baby. I am a stay at home mom as well, so most if not all of my day consists of being with my baby. I’ve learned to designate time during his naps for myself. Doesn’t matter what I do, as long as it isn’t my normal daily tasks (ex. Cleaning, laundry, etc). This allows me to have time for myself and to have time to do things I enjoy, such as reading or even just watching a show.

Are there any specific tips or advice you would give to other moms going through similar experiences?
My one thing I would say is breathe and enjoy watching your baby grow and change as much as you can. I spent part of my time newly in motherhood focused on wanting my life to go back to normal… but then I realized my life was normal just a different normal than what I was used to pre-baby. Don’t rush it.

What has been the most rewarding aspect of being a mom for you?
Everything! One thing I can say that has been super rewarding as a mom, is seeing how much my little one loves me. I walk into a room, even if it’s full of other people, and he instantly kicks and smiles ear to ear. I know I’m his person and he’s mine as well, I need him just as much as he needs me.

Where can we find you on social media?
You can find me on Instagram @brihofsteadter and TikTok @brihofsteadter. Most, if not all of my posts are my little babe, so check them out and see his cute contagious smile!
