I love getting emails to let me know that someone has commented/answered a post. I love to read and respond to other mums and the email alerts are very welcome in my in box. A big thanks to the mums that take the time to answer and comment on posts. I do try to answer/respond to everyone. There are no points for answering everyone, but I love to do it as my motivation for being on this site is not points and rewards, rather the connection I have with this wonderful community. Any reward is just a bonus. :)

  • Thank-you for being part of Mouthsofmums! Best Wishes.


  • It feels like a good group of mums here. Most other parenting sites are unbearable.


  • It is certainly a lovely community to a part of. I love reading about everyone’s experiences and am grateful for all the useful advice and the support this site offers. Keep up the good work!


  • lovely post mom93821 and as a point of interest I love reading your posts and contributions, you are a very valued mom. :-)

    • Thank you Cherz! Your words mean a lot to me! I have always enjoyed your thoughtful, sensitive and intelligent contributions. The wealth of experience and knowledge within this community is a blessing.


  • It is a really helpful site which offers plenty of advice and lots of experiences .


  • I’d like to get emails letting you know if someone’s replied direct to your comment – that doesn’t seem to happen.

    • I get emails about my posts, it might be tricky to get emails on every single comment?

      • yes it is possibly something to do with the wordpress set-up or limitations but hey, i have never run a website before! lol. maybe it is just not possible yet :)


  • Yes, a live chat option would be very cool and I agree – I like to read the replies I get to my comments but find I have to bookmark what I’ve commented on and keep checking back to see myself.


  • yeah it would be pretty cool for sure. yeah sometimes people give you tips in their replies but you don’t know until you go back to the post. it would be cool to get an email saying that you have a reply and link. and a real live mums chat room would be good!


  • I just get notifications when someone answers to one of my posts.
    I would like to be able to keep more track on what people say after me in other discussions though.


  • I think it is such a great community to share your own knowledge but also tap into the very large knowledge bank that’s available at our fingertips!


  • Can you tell me how you get email notifications? I don’t seem to be getting any notifications when someone has commented on my posts. TIA.

    • I get the notifications via my in box. Maybe check your profile page? Hope it helps?
