      give it a go

      While I was pregnant with my first son I never thought to look on the internet for dedicated website to parenthood maybe that was because I worked full time! I seemed to spend money on magazines and books but once my son was born and I received that little bag of goodies in hospital I was hooked to it. I now have another son who is 10 months and I still pop on it now and then.

      The website is packed full of information from getting pregnant to having a toddler bouncing of your walls! It is split into seven sections along the top Community, getting pregnant, pregnancy, baby, toddler+, family time and for you.

      You take a journey through parenthood and bounty is there to help guide you along. Community is the fun interactive section with forums and blogs and competitions to enter and recent news. I enjoy looking on this part from time to time. It is simple to use, it has to be if I'm using it!
      If you want to join in with the forums and competitions you will have to join up creating a username and password. They do ask a fair bit of information from you like your address, email and how many children or if you're expecting. This is so when they send you emails it is tailored to you and children.

      Once you are a bounty member you can add to your profile as much as you like. The only problem I have had is adding a picture but that might be because of the size our pictures are taken at, we always seem to have these sort of problems.

      There is a long list of forums so I am sure you would find one to suit you. I have found the forums very helpful in the past and have posted comments and made new threads which are all simple enough. You just click into the forum and to create a new thread there is a link 'create new thread' which you just click on and follow it through, simples! Not only is there baby related forums there is every day stuff like tv, books, money matters, Christmas etc.

      The blogs are good fun to follow and make you feel like you are normal too. I have to admit to not following them very well though I just don't have the time. And to have one myself I just haven't even thought about with two little ones on the go now. I am sure it is easy enough, there seems to be plenty of them.

      The website seems to go along with the simple user friendly look. Each section has useful articles for you to read through. If you're expecting or just want to be organised there is an interactive organiser you can do. Just add your details and put in dates and you will get bounty reminders.

      So if you're looking for a trusted site to guide you and find people to talk to this is the site for you. There is so much on this site; even I haven't been through it all yet. There is something for everyone so give it a go.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        It's OK.

        As with alot of other mums, I discovered Bounty when pregnant with my first child. I signed up to the website and started looking through the forums, and that took a while!

        FORUMS

        The forums are split into sections, the idea being that rather than one huge general forum, everyone has a place they can go to, related to their TTC (trying to conceive), pregnancy and beyond journey. I'll review some of the forums, but not all as there are too many.

        DUE IN FORUMS

        Some of the most popular forums are the Due In ones. There is a due in for each month of the year and here you can chat to other mums - and the occasional dad who is brave enough - who are at a similar stage to you.
        These forums are great and very useful as you get a wide range of experiences.
        Bounty has also provided a section for Past Due In forums, where mums can keep in touch after birth.

        Whilst these forums can be fantastic, they do have a downside. Put a lot of hormonal women in a (virtual) room and there will be a few arguments. The other problem is Trolls. Apparently there are some vindictive people around whose idea of fun is to rip other peoples photos off and make up a whole identity, pregnancy, the works.
        They do invariably get caught out but it will always be in a big blown up way. These can be very upsetting, especially when you believed someone to be genuine.

        DEBATES FORUM
        The debates forum has quite a reputation on Bounty, for being quite ferocious at times. This forum suffers the worst trolls, they are generally extremely nasty.
        Mainly though, this forum is great if you want to get your teeth into a debate. It can have slow days and days where you can't keep up.

        BUY/SELL FORUM
        Arguably the busiest forum on Bounty. It's fast paced and if you want to sell you need to have a thick skin and patience.
        Personally, I wouldn't recommend it. If you have no guarantees, no come backs, no rights. Bounty has a disclaimer at the top of the forum. You are on your own, and people have been scammed on there. So be warned.

        There is a huge range of other forums from Special Offers to Post Natal Depression, I think there could be around 50-60 forums in total so you can see why I won't review them all.

        The biggest issue with Bounty is their forum moderation. They simply refuse to ban by ISP or any other effective method. Their sign-up process is so simple, which creates the problem of when a member is banned, they simply sign up with a new email address.
        Their admin also seems to only work Monday to Friday. This to me is incredible on a website this size, with the big corporate sponsorships and advertising, one would think they could afford some evening moderators.

        Other websites manage to effectively moderate so I am at a loss as to why Bounty don't. Since this is my opinion, I will say it just seems like they don't care.

        REST OF SITE

        Other areas of the site have some useful resources. For example they have ovulation calculators, due date predictors, a week by week guide to your pregnancy, Expert advice, a Dad's blog.

        They cover Health and Wellbeing, your child's development - giving you all the milestones your child will pass.

        Bounty has a 'News' section but to be honest, unless you are concerned about which celebrity has named their child the most ridiculous name then the news section will hold little interest.

        I don't really pay much attention to the rest of the site, other than the forums. It's filled with advertisements, for all the big companies.
        Bounty does have a baby of the month competition. As with most online competitions of these types now, I wouldn't bother (not that I ever have) as the forums get spammed with requests for you to vote for other members' children.

        To me, this takes away what these competitions are about and feels very much like pushy parents in the making!

        Bounty is partnered with Pampers, The Children's Mutual, Home Learning College and Kidstart, so expect to be bombarded with offers from all these. They feature heavily in the packs Bounty send out to mums.


        So, all in all what do I think?

        This could be an excellent, overall website, with good informative articles and forums which can grow.

        As it is, the website has more fluff than useful content, the forum moderation may as well be non-existent.
        For a company which has as big a name and brand as Bounty, one would expect more effort to be put into their website, especially in our Digital age.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          a great site

          Bounty Website (www.bounty.com)

          While waiting in the hospital while pregnant to get my first scan the midwife handed me a bounty pack. It had lots of information and further packs to collect which meant you could get free samples. One of the leaflets said I could sign up to the bounty website so I thought I'd look it up and sign up to see what the fuss is all about.

          The website has lots of information and can be for anyone as there is a section on getting pregnant, during pregnancy, when the baby arrives, when it's a toddler, family time and a section for you.

          Each section has different topics being discussed depending on the stage you are at.

          **Getting Pregnant**

          This section will answer any questions you may have (no matter how silly they are). It has a section which asks you are you ready for a baby and points out things you maybe wouldn't have realised is important when planning a baby.

          There is ovulation calculators that can help you track when you are most fertile (this can be very useful). Support pages are available for people who have problems getting pregnant or for someone who has had a miscarriage. Other people's experiences are included plus telephone numbers if you needed or wanted them.

          **Pregnancy**

          There is a wealth of information on the different stages of pregnancy and what you can expect. Also it will give you advice on how to ease some pregnancy-related problems.

          What I like is that there is a week by week calendar, which will highlight common complaints for this stage. It isn't as detailed as some other websites but it still is nice to go and have a look.

          **Baby**

          I haven't really looked much yet at this section. My baby isn't due to May. It gives you tips and advice on how to deal with newborns from bathing your baby to which nappies you use.

          **Toddler**

          You will be given advice on how to help your child's development, how to chose your childcare and how to understand tantrums.

          **Family Time**

          This section is all about your parenting skills. Tips and ideas are available on how to organise your growing family.

          **For You**

          You will find fun details (like fashion and celebrity gossip) here as well as the more serious issues (like your career).

          **FORUMS**

          Bounty has so much information from the silly questions you might be embarrassed/afraid to ask to having fun topics you would enjoy looking at. Some examples of this is there is a baby gender guesser and a baby names section.

          I really find the forum section on this website very useful. In fact it's the best out of any other site I have seen. You can get advice from other people who are in the same boat as you. Quite often pregnancy can be lonely and you can make friends online if you wish. It's easy to meet people with the same interests as you as they are going through the same things.

          The forums are in sections as well and the one I find most useful is the month that I am due in as the other woman are at exactly the same stage of their pregnancy as I am. I sometimes find it comforting hearing them complain about the same things, as I am it makes me feel more sane and normal.

          Its lovely to be able to ask other people for their advice as I am a first time mum and sometimes find the whole thing overwhelming at times as there is so much conflicting advice. Any mother wants the best for their baby and need advice from others who have been there and done it before.

          **OVERALL**

          I would recommend this site to anyone even if they don't sign up just to get important information, ideas or answer any niggling questions. The way the information is laid out you don't get overloaded its easy to read and digest. If you want to access the forums you will have to sign up though if you want to participate.

          It's a great site for anyone who is planning a family or already have one.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Bounty.com for everyone

            Most people find out about bounty when they first meet their midwife and are given their first bounty pack. These contain various leaflets with information on pregnancy, child birth etc. and also have free sample gifts. Mine contained caffinee free diet coke, couple of fairy washing tablets and demestos. They also include details of bounty.com.

            Bounty.com is a website which contains loads of information on pregnancy and what to expect, child birth, children, money the list goes on and on. Bounty has been going for over 50 years and has built up partnerships with several leading companies which offer competiitions for people to enter, more money off vouchers and special offers.

            One of the best things about the bounty site though is becoming a member and joining the forums. These forums provide invaluable information that you just don't get elsewhere and is great if your a first time mum and are worried about every little twinge as you don't know what it is or even if its not your first and you don't remember that before moments.

            Each of the forums are different and they do depend on the members in them as to how you feel about it. I joined the Due In ..... and we have laughed together, cried together, supported each other all the way through and there is still more to go before our little one's arrive so I expect much more to come. The nicest thing is that no one is judgemental as everyone's experiences are different but there have been instances where people have fallen out over something as it has been mis-read or mis-interpreted but that happens in the real world as well and everyone is adult enough to get over it and move on and help each other out once more. This is really useful if you don't have any friends with children or are just feeling isolated due to your pregnancy or little one, don't forget we all need help sometimes.

            The due in month that I joined has arranged a secret stork, we e-mailed an external email account, this had been tried via the bounty system but the person who was organising it got blocked as bounty thought they were spaming everyone. And we gave due dates, sex of baby if know and likes and dislikes and we have a maximum of £10 to spend in the mum to be/baby and send to them. Its not much but adds to friendly feeling of our group.

            The forums range from the Due in months, to trying to concieve, miscarriage to working mum, money matters, special offers. There really is a forum for everyone and everything.

            There is also a chat function so you can talk to people "live" if you don't want to give out your personal details. And also a message system so you can e-mail different members privately if you want to or don't want something in a forum that everyone is able to read.

            Bounty.com is not just for women either there is a dads section which provides information from a male point of view for planning for fatherhood etc. and reading lots of the forums the dads are keen to read what the women are saying and join in. Even if they do get moaned about sometimes.

            The website is not the easiest to navigate and sometimes does have days where it doesn't want to log you in or seem to want to take you where you want to go but as general rule it does seem to work fine.

            As with most websites nowadays there are various forms of media on there from news reports, to pictures and videos for people to watch on lots of different subjects. There is also a topic each couple of weeks for members to vote on.

            Overall if you are pregnant, trying to get pregnant, recovering from a miscarriage or already have children and want somewhere to go to get the information you need or have a werid and wonderful question I would highly recommend this website and its members.

            Helpful from trying to conceive throughout childhood

            Bounty Website - Offers support and information from trying to conceive and throughout childhood
            Most women find out about Bounty during pregnancy when you receive a Bounty pack, the pack contains various things from samples to coupons and offers and also information about Bounty.com and a really helpful week by week guide to pregnancy. It is free to join Bounty.com and it has been a huge help to me thoughout pregnancy and being a parent.

            The site contains information on babys growth and what to expect throughout your pregnancy and games. After joining you can add photos and create your own blogs. The most important part to me has definitely been the Forums, I have found these so helpful and made lots of friends. The Forums are split into lots of different groups to ensure that when you post a question etc you will get the help you need more quickly and efficiently. It is such a help to be able to post problems in a place where there are other people in the same kind of situations that can offer some advice and support when needed, or when people in different situations can offer different views and opinions. As well as age appropriate forums for your growing children there is also a section just for you, Getting Pregnant, Pregnancy (including "due in" forums for each month), Dads Zone, Baby to Toddler, Family Time, Support all with individual sections within them.

            Personally I didn't use Bounty.com during and after my first pregnancy and I feel that I missed out on so much. During and after my second pregnancy I felt a lot more confident because of the instant support and help from Bounty.com, plus saved lots of £££ using the special offers/Competitions and buy & sell forums. I have to say that I use Bounty on a daily basis, just to catch up with gossip or post any problems. Knowing there is a site where you are likely to find someone to talk to day or night is very reassuring when you are prgnant or dealing with a young child - The only problem is, that i may be addicted!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Excellent, would recommend to any parent of young children.

            When I had my first appointment with the Midwife while pregnant with my daughter in 2007, she gave me a Bounty pregnancy information pack which had helpful guides inside along with my pregnancy notes. There was a little book which had a week by week guide to pregnancy and a voucher to claim the second Bounty pack inside.

            I waited until after my 20 week scan and then handed in the voucher at the customer service desk at Asda and received my second pack, which was quite exciting as a first time mum. When I got home, I sat down with a cup of tea and opened my pack. I was quite impressed as it was full of little information guides, money off coupons and also lots of little free samples. There was also some information about joining the Bounty website. The next time I logged onto the internet, I decided to take a look on Bounty.com - I set myself up with a username and password and started to explore the site. I found that there was a whole world of wonderful things on there, baby names finder, pregnancy guides, helpful reviews, even games and a fun gender guesser, but most importantly there are all kinds of different forums which enable you to chat with other parents, people who can share their experiences and people who are going through the same experiences as yourself at the same stages of pregnancy.

            I found these forums the most helpful part of Bounty. When I was having a nosey through all the different forums, I found that there was a different forum for every 'Due in' month which enables you to go in to the forum of the month your due and share experiences with people who are at the same stage of pregnancy. I found this to be a lifeline while pregnant - if there was any niggly doubts or concerns then I could start a new thread asking for advice and lots of wonderful helpful ladies reply with words of support. Most of the time, someone else had similar concerns and had already started a new thread so I was able to have a read through and get very helpful advice. It is a fab way to make new friends and share support. After all the babies are born you can move to other forums for the age of your baby such as 0-3 months, 4-7months and so on. As a new parent, it was fantastic to be able to log on at any time of day or night and chat with others. In time, I also realised that there was even a forum for special offers where all the ladies (and a few men) hang out and post any bargains they have seen, which to be honest was so helpful in it's self as I have saved a fortune as I always know where is selling the cheapest nappies, toys and groceries.

            I am pregnant again with my second child and use Bounty on a daily basis to chat with others in the same boat. I would highly recommend Bounty to any pregnant lady or any parents of young children as it has been such a support over the last few years for me personally.

              Helps stop the feeling of isolation when a parent

              I registerd with the Bounty website whilst pregnant and received their free packs with samples and coupons, and also read lots of interesting articles on the website about pregnancy and child care and development.

              When my son was about 6 months old and I still felt like I was struggling to cope I also started going on the forums. I now go on almost daily to give and recieve advice on all aspects of caring for, feeding and shopping for a baby and find it really helpful to see what other parents have to say and to know that you're not the only one going through things.

              There are different forums depending on when you are due or how old your baby / toddler is which is good as the same heated debates come up very regularly in the early months forums and it does start to get a bit boring. There are also forums for all sorts of aspects of family or personal life including plenty of non-baby related ones.

              great for any family with kids :)

              This site is fantastic. I first joined when i was 3 months pregnant with my little girl she is now 2 1/2 years old. I have been given loads of fantastic advice and not just baby related either. The choice of forums is fantastic, but no matter which one you post in you are always garunteed brilliant advice.
              I have met some really great friends through this site. Who I speak to on a daily basis.
              With the site being very easy to navigate around too You are sure to find it a joy. With friendly people and a great support network and also a lovely bunch of people around day and night, I am sure you wouldnt be dissappointed joining this site.
              not only did I manage to save a fortune for my daughter last chrismas by using the special offers forum, i also managed to buy things from the buy and sell forum which were brand new.
              Money matters is brilliant for advice especially in the climate we are in at the moment. Or why not take yourself to film/tv were you can get great spoilers on upcoming programmes along with thoughts on whats on at the moment.
              Theres so much more too, like blogs ect
              this site is fab and has been a godsend to me for 3 years x

              one of the best web-sites for young familys

              I recently used the bounty web-site and was very impressed with their service. The web site is easy to use and all you have to do is register.

              I had heard about bounty when I was in hospital with my son and was given packs with free information and products to try. In the hospital people used to come round from bounty to take photos of your child. With my son I never had these photos done due to my uncle came and took them. However with my daughter they did and they were lovely photos that you could view before you buy.

              At the time I was in the hospital with my daughter I didn't have the money to pay for the photos but was assured that this didn't matter because the pictures were stored on a special file for you with your own unique code for when you wanted to order. You could phone them or go on the web site to order them where you can also view them.

              I registered with the web site about a week ago now almost 2 years after I had my daughter and wasn't sure if they would even have my daughters photos still, also I had lost the log in number for my photos so I wasn't sure if I would be able to order them. When I clicked on the photo section it took me to a page where you would enter your personal photo code and also had an e-mail section where you could e-mail them to request the code if you didn't have it GREAT.

              I filled in the e-mail and sent it, it asked for my sons date of birth his name and the hospital that he was born in. Within a day I had an e-mail back with the code for my photos. I logged back in and entered my code to view my photos, it bought back lots of memories you don't realise how fast they grow up and I had forgotton how lovely the photos were. I could only order the package that I had requested in the hospital or add more to it but I couldn't lower it.

              The photos were more expensive ordering over the internet than paying for them in the hospital I am not sure why that is but the seemed to be at least £5 more. I ordered these anyway and within 4 days my photos were delivered by normal post in a secure box, all the photos were packed in plastic bags to protect them with a letter stating if I wasn't satified that you could send them back in 27 days. I was very happy with them so I have given them all out now.

              Also on the website they have alot of parent reviews and advice on childcare and saftey that is great for first time parents and current ones that may want to find something new to try. It also great for parents who are pregnant their is alot of advice on birthing plans and baby names. They also offer special deals and coupons that they will send to you. You can also set up a trust fund account with them to invest your childs money that they will keep safe until your child is 18 unfortunatley I didn't know this until I had already opened one at my bank.

              This is very useful web site and I have learnt alot of information about pregnancy, birth and aftercare for my children and where i can find advice from local services too.

              I find that they are efficient and the web-site is set out lovely with good spacing and pastle colours to make it more friendly. You can easily find the information that you reqire from their and if you need to talk to someone the phone number for them is accessable too.

              lovely website for help and support

              TOTALLY ADDICTTED!! I joined up too this website when I was 16 weeks pregnant with my first child. I found the website on the back of the bounty pack I got from my GP.

              What is Bounty and what do you do?

              Well Bounty is a website where parents can get help and support. The website has different support forums on. Some of these are:

              Due In.... - These forums are when you are due in a certain month and you can talk and get support off other mums who are due in the same month as you.
              Trying to concieve - This forum helps mums and parents get support when trying for a baby.
              Babys & toddler aged 0-3, 3-6, etc etc - These forums are a place where parents can get support on feeding,sleeping,dressing,bathing,general everyday support depending on the age of there child.

              There are also much more forums and information too support and help parents through there pregnancy and bringing up there new babys.

              The help i have had by going through this website is emmense and ive met some wonderful girls and people on this website which i will always stay in touch with!

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              A one-stop site for parents/to be.

              I first came across Bounty, the company, 13 years ago when expecting my first child. Back then Bounty came to me in little freebie sample bags and information booklets at various stages of pregnancy, childbirth and first milestones.

              So in 2004 after getting that much longed for line on a stick, I looked forward to receiving my Bounty booty again. This time the written information told me there was now a website and having just recently joined the world of cyberspace, I instantly logged on and joined up.

              The website is a wealth of information and advice from planning conception, right through to school aged children. There are week by week pregnancy guides with interactive calenders, just for fun gender guessing tools and baby name guides. The new arrival section covers the first few months with detailed advice on crying, weaning, sleep and developmental milestones while the toddler section and growing families section covers life beyond that first year. There's also a Dad's section which includes a new dad's survival guide.

              But by far the largest source of information comes from it's huge online community. Bounty have a large forum area, with over a hundred different sections. There are forums for 'mums to be' due in each month, so you can share your journey with others at around the same stage. This is a particularly nice part of the forum, and strong bonds and friendships as well as valuable advice and information are formed here.

              Once your baby is born, there are age related forums. I found the 0-3m and 3-6m forums very helpful as a new mum. I would post in the middle of the night while struggling with breast feeding, and quite often someone would be there to offer some advice or support. I also picked up fantastic tips on sleeping routines and weaning.

              The age related forums cover right up until school-aged years. However if you want a bit of chat that doesn't involve your offspring (to be, newborn or toddler) then settle down in the 'Me Time' section of the community. Here you can discuss celebrities and books, crafts and hobbies diet and fitness and financial matters among others.

              There are many other forums covering a wide range of support and family related themes (trying to concieve, post-natel depression, twins and multiples to name a very small few)

              As Well as the forums there are chat rooms, which I have never actually used, a photograph storage and sharing area, regular competitions including baby of the month (yep a bonny babe competition ... yuk!) and links to other useful sources of information.

              I have used Bounty.com and it's community for 5 years now, although much less now that my children are past being toddlers. It's been a life line at times during pregnancy and those first months. It's very easy to navigate around the website and the forums are some of the most user friendly I have come across. it does rely heavily on advertising and some pop ups seem to escape my blocker, and slow the website down at times. Another slight negative is that the vast community area is actually unmoderated, and at times can be targetted by troll's, usually entertaining or mildly irritating, occasionally some pretty upsetting and highly offensive stuff has been posted.

              I'd highly recommend Bounty.com as an invaluable source to anyone planning on starting their own family and beyond. I've made friends, laughed and cried along with other parents and been entertained for hours thanks to this site.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                A very informative website for anybody who is thinking of starting a family, or who already has one!

                bounty.com is an online website which is a very resourceful website for mums, mums to be and people who are trying to conceive.

                You can visit the website to join the Bounty Club and most pregnant women will be advised of this service by their midwifes and if you already have children then you will probably already know about this service. By joining the Bounty Club you will receive money off vouchers and free samples by post as well as offers by e-mail such as £5.00 off at mamatoto.co.uk when you join up online as well as being entered in to a prize draw (prizes vary at all times so see the website for further details of this).

                There are lots of useful areas on the bounty website for mums to be, people trying to conceive and people who already have children and there are a lot of tools on the website which are very useful, here I will list the best ones (in my opinion).

                Weekly pregnancy calendar: By signing up online you will receive a weekly e-mail advising you of what stage you are at now in your pregnancy or how old your child is and what you should be expecting now.

                Ovulation Calculator: This is very useful for women who are trying to conceive and who want to try and find out when their most fertile days are.

                Money section: The whole of the money section is very useful and there are lots of hints and tips on how to make your money go further.

                Dads: Not all family orientated sites somewhere that is just for Dads and there is a lot of information here on what to expect through all stages of labour and childhood etc as well as things to keep Dad occupied and help to keep him involved in the whole process of childbirth.

                Podcasts: There are podcasts that can be downloaded on a wide variety of topics and this is especially useful for busy Mums & Dads (aren't they all!).

                Coupons: This is a relatively new feature that I've discovered and told friends and family about. Each week there are new coupons that can be downloaded and printed out to help you save a little bit of money on those essential items!

                Overall I think the site is full of information and I could spend hours just browsing through here finding out information about conception and ovulation and reading tips to pass on to family and friends who are already pregnant or who have children.

                I am rating this website 5/5 as it's an easy to use website and is free to register with minimal details. There are lots of great features on the website and there should be something for people with or without children alike to learn.

                  a great site

                  Bounty.com is an absolutley invaluable web site for any expectant mother be it your first baby or 3rd like me it is worth its weight in gold.

                  It was realy simple and easy to register on there site with a few basic details, name adress, email etc, once you have registered with them you have full access to the information available on there site which basically tells you everything you need to know about being pregnant right from the conception to the birth and talks you through the different stages and how you will be feeling and how yours and babys body will be developing at these stages, the info on there is detailed and fantastic to read. it puts your mind at ease about any little niggles that may be worrying you and you can check it out any time you like rather than stressing your self waiting for your next midwife appointment to ask if something is normal.

                  As well as this you get to talk to other mums to be on there forum and chat areas so can get to know people going through the same things as you and ease each others worries at the same time as sharing in each others joy.

                  Bounty also do gift packs, 3 in total i believe which you can look at on there web site to see what is in them but cant actually get them from there, you will be given the first one by your midwife, the second you have a card to collect it from a participating store like mother care or boots and the third you are given in hospital after deivery of the baby, each pack contains information, free samples and money off vouchers.

                  the free samples are great they are not just little sachets but full sized bottles of things to try like baby lotions and sampoos.

                  i would highly recomend this site along with emmas diary to any expectant mum

                    bounty

                    Bounty.com is a website specialising in all things mother and baby/toddler. I am currently pregnant therefore use this site as a useful tool for gaining information and tips on the upcoming birth of my baby.

                    The chat forums on this website are very easy to use and are a great support network for women either trying to conceive, who are currently pregnant, who have young babies and toddlers and there is even a section for fathers to be. I have found this site to be very useful and helpful in terms of finding out information and as a place to vent my frustrations and gain support from women in the same situation as me.

                    Aswell as the forums there are also games, competitions, nutrition advice, parenting tips and lots more. You can also get money-off vouchers and coupons for use in various stores throughout the country. This is obviously very useful when budgeting for a baby!

                    Overall, this is a great site to browse and I have made some great friends willing to chat about baby things! A great site for parents and mums-to-be. Highly recommended.
