One of my favorite apps!
I love love love Parenthoods! The community is supportive, diverse, and respectful. Also, I like that everyone on there is a parent (der) so you can post as many kid/family related things you want and everyone "gets" it--unlike other social media platforms where you know you're probably going to cause a few eye rolls on your third parenting related post in a day. Ha.
Although I stick to the discussion threads, there are also activities and meet-ups on there so 'Hooders can get together and get to know each other IRL, too. AND, a classifieds section where you can sell your gear to others.
It's rad, ok? Just download it---you won't be sorry!
With the most recent update adding even better features (dark mode 🎉🎉), this app only gets better and better!
As a parent with very little support system (no local family or friends with kids), this app has been a tremendous help in getting through the day to day. Being able to ask a question, to know others are going through the same thing, is incredibly useful. I don't feel like I'm alone when I have so many other parents ready to offer their support or advice.
As a parent, yes, you're going to talk about things like diapers, poo, spit up, and many others. It's part of the experience (and if you don't, well, good for you, I guess).
Not sure how I'd have gotten through the past couple years without these folks.
Virtual village for new parents!
I've been through my share of local parent groups, online communities and support network since becoming a mom and the folks in this app are the most thoughtful, caring, funny, and unpretentious group of people ever! It's saved my sanity through frequent illnesses, diaper blowouts, and a myriad other TMI topics that become an everyday conversation and I don't know where I'd be today if it weren't for the support I received from this group!
