In our house we love movies. We’ve even been known to catch a double feature from time to time. Yet even with cinema and Sky On Demand, Netflix and Amazon, the biggest problem I have lately is finding something to watch with my tween daughter. Of course there are the unrated movies that we all […]

BritMums teamed up with Balloon Time and bloggers to create a “Celebration Club”, highlighting the fun ways we can add the colour and fun of helium-filled balloons to […]
As a nation we love football. As parents we support our children playing football in all kinds of ways. @chrismse1 describes how we do it: “Stand in the cold and wet, drive for miles every weekend and cheer from the sidelines”. At our #FootballMumoftheYear Twitter party we celebrated all the ways we mums help and […]
Can you remember the first night baby slept in their own room? Or are you preparing to start baby sleeping in their own room? Maria tells the tale of her first night, we hope yours is better. You, like me, have probably been told that once the baby has moved to his own room everybody […]
We asked mums what they like to receive and what they like to send to their own mothers for Mother’s Day. At our #MothersDayDoddle Twitter party, mums swapped their tips for best mum gifts and also what they’re planning on giving their mums. The #MothersDayDoddle party was sponsored by Doddle, a service for collecting, returning […]
Is this the year you stop hating the way you look? Practically every woman I know hates something about the way she looks, if not harbouring a general meh feeling about her overall looks. Instead of it being a little feeling, like, “I wish my hair were thicker/my waist thinner/my thighs firmer but I’ve got […]
Every parent has their tried-and-tested tricks to help guarantee a restful slumber for baby, and a good night for baby translates into restful, less stressful nights (and days) for parents too. We asked for your pearls of wisdom at our recent #babysleep Twitter party. The #babysleep party was sponsored by Pampers. Pampers Baby-Dry nappies contain […]
It’s all very well talking about the benefits of #Hibernot – the general sense of well-being and wonder that comes from spending time outdoors during the winter months – but how easy is it actually to do? The Roebuck family from Greater Manchester became the sweethearts of the #Hibernot campaign when, in mid-December, Land Rover […]
Proving that winter is not just about hunkering down inside with the heating turned up high and a casserole on the go, our #hibernot Instagram challenge, as part of the Land Rover #hibernot campaign, showed that a drop in temperature is no bar to outdoors fun. Families from all over the country inspired us by […]
Heather Hill has published The New Mrs D, a highly sensitive work of commercial comedy fiction on the difficult and often unspoken subject of the effect on relationships where one partner is addicted to porn. Here she shares with BritMums why we should be more supportive of women who feel cheated by it. ‘Is porn cheating?’ […]
Divorcing couples now need to consider mediation — it’s required by law. In this guest post, the Rt Hon Simon Hughes MP (right), Minister of State for Justice and Civil Liberties, with responsibility for family justice in England and Wales, takes us through the process and how it can help with custody issues, finances, changes […]
It’s that time of year: when the divorce rate spikes as couples decide to their separate ways. Making this unpleasant time as painless is possible is a priority, and these days mediation plays a bigger part than ever. Find out if mediation is for you. Considering mediation is a legal requirement You may be aware […]
As the days shorten and the temperature drops, you can be forgiven for ignoring the great outdoors in favour of the tiny (but, crucially, warm and dry) indoors. Angela Roebuck and her family had no plans to swap the comforts of their home in Greater Manchester for days spent exploring the Cumbrian fells, Scottish lochs […]
At our recent Twitter party — in conjunction with the UK release of Tinkerbell and the Legend of the NeverBeast — we talked about the film’s key themes, including not judging people by their appearance, the importance of nature and learning how to care for animals. How can we encourage our children to learn such […]
“It’s not fair, it’s not fair,” is a phrase we hear a lot as parents, acknowledges Julie-Ann at Supermummy. Children are exquisitely attuned to the issue of unfairness. We certainly don’t want to see it in our dealings with adult life and our bank. “My Granny used to say treat everyone the way you would […]
What does Bonfire Night mean to your family? Perhaps you attend a community bonfire, make a Guy Fawkes or indulge in some tasty treats. For me, 5th November is a very special day. It is the day I became part of the Holmes family. My adoptive parents had two teenage sons and they had always […]
Last month I turned down probably one of the best opportunities I’ve been approached with as a blogger. My preference word to cover blogging trips/product reviews/working with brands etc is ‘opportunity’. I can’t bear it, when people suggest bloggers get things for ‘free’. Nothing is free. I am an influencer, with an engaged audience. I […]
Recently a friend of Katy Hill’s, radio personality Simon Hirst, announced he is going to live the rest of his life as a woman.
