As year end recaps roll in from tech giants like Google and Spotify, Pinterest is looking ahead to the new year in an attempt to predict the future—the future of fashion, home décor, beauty, parenting and more.

In its 2023 Pinterest Predicts report, the popular inspiration and planning platform has analyzed months of data to identify the soon-to-be trends that will emerge or continue to grow in 2023. The result? A shockingly accurate vision of what’s to come. Over the past three years, 80 percent of trends predicted have come to fruition.

So what’s trending this year in parenting, you might ask? Pinterest points to three main themes:
