With the internet basically containing all the informations in the world today, how often do you use it for your motherhood or parenting ideas? What are the topics you often search for? Do you use it to get advise or freebies?

The internet helped me to become a mother. I used it to track my cycles when I was trying to become pregnant with my son. While I was Pregnant I used the internet to connect with other pregnant mothers, to look up what was going on with my body and to educate myself on how to take better care of my little baby boy. I even registered for my baby shower gift online. Now as a busy mom I am still using the internet to track my menstrual cycle, order groceries online because I am to busy to get to the store. There are tons of ides for activities for your child online. I also joined a mommy group online and we meet occasionally for play dates. I am so thankful to have the internet as a helpful tool.

I believe that internet is a great source to get info or some advice, what I search for is basically babies development, sites that sell clothes, toys, etc also what kind of activities I can do with my baby to stimulate her. Babycenter is a great page to look for info I recommend it

I also use babycenter and yes, it's a great site giving growth details from the time of conception up to childhood. They also offer freebies and discount coupons.

I had my first son in 1995 and I didn't use the Internet back then. I read books about parenting at that time in my life. I began using the Internet in 2000. I had my second son in 2007. I joined some parenting websites and on them gave plus received advice. I had my baby daughter in 2009 so I still read discussions on parenting, have kids, been pregnant and had children.
