Mumsnet is the UK’s biggest network for parents, and our aim is to make parents’ lives easier by pooling knowledge, advice and support.

Parenting can feel pretty lonely at times; time and again we see our users talking about how other posters’ responses helped them to cope with the day-to-day dilemmas of early parenthood, which can feel hugely significant and upsetting to parents, however common they are. If it’s the middle of the night and your baby won’t latch on properly, you can start a conversation on Mumsnet and you’ll have answers and virtual cups of tea almost instantly. If you’re dealing with bereavement, illness or just general isolation, the comfort of instantaneous responses from people who’ve been down the same path can be quite profound.
