I was introduced to iwantmymum.com by a friend at a postnatal group. It was recommended to me as a place to get accurate information regarding breastfeeding, and I joined just a few weeks after the site went live. I have now been there for nearly three years and can safely say that I have found my on-line niche. I appreciate the attitude displayed on the site to all the new research regarding breastfeeding in particular, but also other aspects of parenting and childbirth. Studies published tend to be discussed in depth in a way that enlightens beyond the headlines one sees in the media, and feeds into the site's ethos of "an informed choice is a happy ...

I found iwmm after googling an article on extended breastfeeding. What I found was a no nonsense fact based site for parents. No excuses as to why things can't or won't work out with breastfeeding and sensible parenting, just lots of excellent information and researched based help for problems.

I've met a good few people from there in real life and have made some good friends who think I'm as normal as they ... Read the complete review

Well its been two years (or so) since I posted my review of IWMM. (And to answer the queries -- yes it was a genuine review.) So I thought it time for a brief update. Well first and foremost: I am still there -- a fact that speaks volumes for the community. They are a fantastic bunch and I have met more than a few in real life. Indeed, for some reason Oxfordshire is a real IWMM hotspot and there are regular meet-ups -- some of which my wife and I host. So if you want or need some real life support you can get it, especially in Oxfordshire. (There are other meets in other areas but they are less regular.) Second, unfortunately, I am still ...

This website kept me sane! In the daunting new world of "parenting", it can be hard to keep your head when all around you are loosing theirs! Relatives, friends, message forums; everyone is keen to share their advice and it can all get quite confusing. This is where iwantmymum.com is different. The friendly community of mums (and the odd dad) provides information (often research) and support, to encourage parents to find their own parenting path. Opinions are often diverse and varied, but members respect the choices made by others and it is great to enjoy healthy debate over various topics without anything becoming heated or ...
