Online Resources for Parents: How I Found Support and Simplified Life

I have been a parent for a decade, but since starting Hues, I’ve discovered a wealth of new resources for parents that didn’t exist when my littles were little. Parenting can be tough, especially when you are starting your own business and all of the other trials and tribulations we have been through the past few years, but thanks to the internet there’s a wealth of resources available at your fingertips and not just for tips and ideas, but also to build your community. Whether you are a new parent looking for guidance, or a seasoned pro looking for new ideas, here are some of the amazing resources I have come across. Some I have known for a long time, and some are new to me, so let me know if you have any other ideas to add!

The Wonder Weeks: Understanding My Baby’s Development

 As a new parent, it can be difficult to know why your baby is fussy, clingy or not seeping well. That’s where The Wonder Weeks book and app comes in. The Wonder Weeks offers insights into your baby’s developmental stages, which helped me understand and anticipate my twins behaviour when they were babies. The app includes a personalised calendar based on your baby’s due date or birthdate, showing when to expect ‘leaps’ in development so you can learn to best support them.


The Organised Mum Method: Makes cleaning easy

Keeping our house organised can be a real challenge, especially with young children around. But I’ve found The Organised Mum Method (Team TOMM) to be a simple and effective framework to manage household chores. The system is designed to help me keep my home clean in 30 minutes a day, leaving more time to spend with my family, especially at the weekends. There is a website, book, app, podcast,  and an amazing Facebook community where you can access cleaning schedules, printables, and lots of tips and tricks to help keep your home organised.


MumsMeetUp: Connecting with Other Mums

As a busy mum, it can be hard to find time to connect with other parents. But I’ve recently found MumsMeetUp to be a great resource. The website helps mums connect with each other for playdates, coffee meetups, or just a chat. The website also offers ideas, blogs, parenting tips, and family discounts!


Mumsnet: Advice and Support for Parents

Mumsnet cannot be ignored. The parenting website that offers advice, support, and a community for parents. I have found the forums particularly helpful over the years as they cover a wide range of topics from pregnancy, childbirth, to the teenage years. Mumsnet also offers product reviews, blogs, and a wealth of resources.


The Mum Club: A Community of Like-Minded Mums

As a mum it’s important to feel connected to other parents who are going through similar experiences, which is why when I recently discovered The Mum Club, I was hooked immediately. The Mum Club offers a membership program that includes exclusive content, discounts, events, meetups, and access to a private community of like-minded mums.


Twins Trust: Connect with Other Twin and Multiple Parents

If you are a parent of twins or multiples, like me, then Twins Trust must be your go-to for specialised information. Twins Trust is a UK-based charity that offers support, advice and resources for families with twins, triplets, or more. They also offer an online community, discounts, and specialised courses which I have found to be hugely helpful over the years!


As a parent, I know that finding support and solutions online can make a huge difference. Whether you are looking for advice, support, to connect, or a way to simplify life, hopefully these resources can help.
