Since I am about to embark on my second “maternity leave” I figured I would share the best shows to binge while on maternity leave. I am not taking an actual leave, but I do have about 3 months worth of posts scheduled. I will still be blogging some in real-time and posting in real-time on social media but this takes a lot of stress off my plate. Some of these are shows I watched after Liam was born and some are shows I have watched since. All are enjoyable!
Best Shows To Binge On Maternity Leave
Big Little Lies: This started literally the weekend I had Liam so every Monday morning I would watch while feeding him. So while I did not binge it last time I absolutely would if I could have.
Younger: This I discovered while he was an infant and sped through the first 3 seasons in about a week. It’s such a fun, cute show and if you haven’t watched it yet you should.
The Crown: Netflix win! I haven’t watched the most recent season which I think premiered last week but I plan to in the next month or so!
The Bold Type: Another great show that really focuses on women’s friendships.
Gilmore Girls: Always a great one to watch over and over again! One of my all-time favorites (not including the revival which was garbage).
Felicity: If I am ever asked a show I wish they would revive this would be a the top of my list. Such a perfect cozy show to binge!
Everwood: I could watch Everwood over and over again! This show is perfect for days on the couch with a new baby.
Veronica Mars: Again revival not included because I didn’t love it, the original run of the show is amazing!
This Is Us: If you haven’t started now is as good of a time as any! It’s one of the best shows on TV, the awards speak for themselves.
Parenthood: I am truly shocked when people tell me they haven’t seen it! But it’s very emotional so be prepared for those hormones to go nuts.
The West Wing: I had never watched The West Wing until I had Liam and then I watched it all. It’s so so so good!
Greys Anatomy: I mean you could probably spend 5 maternity leaves watching all the episodes! Just stick with it because I think it truly gets better!
