Urban millennial mothers largely relied on social media apps to discover new brands, followed by social groups such as WhatsApp apart from following influencers and bloggers. 

For this shopping cohort—apparel and footwear were among the top-purchased categories online with 82% of millennial mothers buying across these categories; this was followed by make-up and beauty products and food and grocery. 

“Baby care is another important category for these shoppers (at 64%). In fact, baby care (64%), home services (like home salon, plumber, etc) and specialized services are more appealing to millennial moms and they are more likely to buy these products or services online as compared to mothers from other age groups,” according to findings of the survey.
