Perhaps one of the best websites for parenting and pregnancy information, Baby Gaga has over 130,000 members from every corner of the globe. For both mothers and fathers, this website has an open forum where you can find information on almost any topic from trying to conceive to birth to dealing with toddlers and teens. Anyone can join and it’s free to do so.
Baby Gaga, or BG as it is called by its regulars, is an open forum website. Guests can view topics posted in the forums just like members can. But in order to have full access to all that Baby Gaga has to offer, one must become a member. Singing up is simple; you fill out a questionnaire asking how many children you have, if you are trying to have a baby or adopt, your username and desired password. After you confirm your e-mail, you are free to post replies in the forums, post a new topic, and make and view profiles.
There are four main forum categories: pregnancy, parenting, photos and media, and everything else. Under the pregnancy forum, there are sub forums from trying to conceive to the actual birth of you baby. Members can discuss baby names they have picked out for their future child, as well as when to and what to pack in their hospital bags. You can also find you own due date buddy or join a group with others members due in the same month as you.
Within the parenting forum, there are forums dealing with post partum issues, and parents with preemies/infants/toddlers/kids/and those who have special needs children. There are also single mom and teen mom forums. In this section, you can learn about breastfeeding and cloth diapering infants, and potty training and disciplining toddlers. You can make custom birthday tickers for your kids here too.
The photos and media forum is just that, a place for you to show pictures of your child’s nursery, your baby bump, and pictures in general of your child or house or even vacation pictures. Everything else is literally that; you can buy and sell items, get advice and share weight loss tips, and get information on your relationship with your partner. There is a contest forum where you can enter yourself or your child in competitions and win a siggy, which is a collaboration of the winning picture, name of contest, and place you win on a special badge. Debate and Discuss is a forum where you can state your opinion and gets other people opinion on today’s biggest issues. The “last stop for immaturity” is The Drama Corner. You can’t post directly into this thread, because this is where the worse catfights go.
Most people come to Baby Gaga for the first time to get one of their free pregnancy tickers. I stumbled upon it this way. In addition to the tickers, it also gives you a week by week account of what’s happening to your baby and your body. You can see pictures of models in the same week of pregnancy as you. The Sarcastic Journalist gives you a humorous account of her weekly struggles while pregnant, and the cartoons give you a comical glimpse of pregnancy.
If you are a first time pregnant mom, or you have 5 kids, Baby Gaga has something to offer you. Check it out.
