To new mothers, or just mothers in general: Are you a member of a website for mothers?

Asked by IBERnineD (7289points) February 5th, 2010

I am on a project for my work and I am researching good sites for mothers, ones with a sense of community, maybe with forums, blog options, or Q & A. For example MamaPedia. I thought I could get some insight into sites that bring new and/or experienced mothers together or where they can feel a sense of community. Is there a specific site you use yourself? Or one you have heard of?

I know this is a relatively famous example of a great website for mothers: http://www.burlingamemothers.org/

In case this isn’t clear—I am not a mother.

I’m on babycenter.com

It’s an insane site. The rules, the groups, the moderators…oy! It’s a riot though with all the drama, and Canada has to have their own because the US apparently can’t get along with anyone. There’s also a UK version I believe.
I join groups on it that interest me, birth clubs, The Debate Team is filled with all the crazies though. So is Bargain Hunters…it doesn’t have any bargains.

Oh and if you want other examples, I know of other sites…
There’s http://www.cafemom.com/
For more “natural” mothers: http://www.mothering.com/

Umm, I’d have to go ask other moms, but those are the main ones.

I used to visit the message boards for the parenting section at iVillage: http://parenting.ivillage.com/messageboards

There are message boards for just about every topic and parenting style you can think of, and I found a lot of good advice about getting kids to sleep, breastfeeding, and parenting a gifted child. I don’t remember much drama, except on some of the debate boards. I remember seeing a lot of drama on the discipline debate board (basically spanking vs. not spanking). Good times, good times. ;)
