Talk to Other Parents on the Babies and Toddlers Forums

Whether it's 1 a.m. and your baby won't sleep or it's 1 p.m. and you need some adult conversation while your toddler is napping, you can find someone to talk to on our forums. Introduce yourself and lurk for a while or jump right in. If you have questions, you can get answers from parents with a variety of parenting styles, experiences and backgrounds.

Make Your Voice Heard on the Babies and Toddlers Blog

While my blog is usually a place where you can find out what's new on the site and learn more about caring for your baby and toddler, sometimes topics come up that elicit strong opinions and feelings. Talking through these issues and trying to see all sides of an issue is a great way for parents to make thoughtful, informed decisions. And, of course, sometimes it just feels good to vent about something that's on your mind or share a great tip with other parents. The blog is a great place to sound off.

Make Your Vote Count with our Parenting Polls

Sometimes you want to vote with your voice and sometimes you just want to use your mouse. Take part in a poll and see how other parents feel about these topics.

Share Pictures of Your Baby or Toddler

Proud parents and grandparents love sharing pictures of their babies and toddlers and other parents love looking at them. I have several galleries of your beautiful children and new galleries spring up all the time. Some babies in the gallery are now grown and in elementary school. It's such a joy to watch your kids grow up on the site. Currently I'm accepting pictures for the galleries below and I'm working on building two new galleries: Baby and Toddler Nurseries and Bedrooms and First Birthday Pictures.

Share Your Parenting Experience and Knowledge

Parents are the best source of information for other parents. Collectively, we are the village that is raising our children. Sharing what you know can be as easy as submitting a quick tip that's worked for you and your family or as in depth as writing a story about your child's birth, an article on a topic you know well or reviewing a product you loved or hated. If you have a parenting blog, I'd love to add you to the blogs listing so other parents can find the great advice you share on your own site.
