Welcome to the new look, jazzed up, easier to navigate Britmums site. You might notice we’ve renamed this Round-up, calling it Special Needs rather than SEN as that seemed to widen the umbrella a little. I find myself simply run off my feet at this time of year with so many wonderfully exciting projects, all [...]

It’s one year now the BritMums round-ups have been running and we’ve seen so much great content this year, when it came to highlighting it we just couldn’t decide. Luckily we have a stable of talented and plugged-in round-up editors who regularly cherry pick the best posts around. So we asked them to tell us [...]
So “It’s Christmas time… there’s no need to be afraid” .. This time round there’ll be no tales of sexual exploits or frightening episodes involving anything purple. If you don’t know what I’m talking about then read last month’s sex and romance LOL roundup here on Britmums. The idea this month was that there [...]
As the Christmas party season approaches, our minds turn to photocopying our bottoms and wallpapering the office with the images. Or snogging the boss after you’ve eaten a mince-pie leaving crumbs in his moustache. So it seems appropriate to bring together some of your more romantic or raunchier posts. It’s taken me a month [...]
Attachment. A very key word to any parent but not least for any adoptive parent or foster parent. Attachment forms the basis of the parent-child bond. It’s vital for developing a healthy relationship with the Caregiver and a healthy attachment with Mum or Dad will in turn help the child to form positive relationships [...]
Awesome Journey… As this post goes live today I am taking possibly the most exciting journey of my life. Today I am travelling with Jen Howze to Ethiopia with the ONE campaign. Jen and I will be privileged to meet mothers in another continent, living in very different conditions to us and we will [...]
Back to shool, back to routines, and for some of us it’s the time to start a bit of Christmas shopping. Whatever online shopping you’re doing this autumn, did you realise you can click a donation (and it’s not even your money!) to a charity of your choice every time you shop online? Here’s how [...]
It’s been a few weeks since we returned from our summer holiday in Sweden and I’m still writing about it, bit by bit, on my blog. I don’t blog while I’m actually away. I like to keep a notebook and scribble things down, save leaflets, brochures, highlight things in guide books. It makes for [...]
In the last month, Olympics fever gripped the nation. Charities make Olympian efforts every day to support people in crisis and to make the world a fairer place. BritMums are linking up charities and bloggers via our charity-matching service. Today, we are giving out virtual medals to just a few of our charity-minded bloggers. [...]
I never like to start on a serious note, but this absolutely deserves it. Since my last health round-up, I’m sure you will all be aware that Kerry (AKA Multiple Mummy) has been taken very seriously ill. I think it’s fair to say that the news sent shockwaves through the parent blogging community because of [...]
Welcome to the very first Britmums Adoption & Fostering round-up! Firstly a little to introduce adoption and fostering. Fostering is how many children in the UK, those who can no longer live with their birth parents, for a variety of reasons, are cared for and parented in the UK. There are a large number of [...]
…with no extra cost to you!! How can you say no to that?! When you shop online this summer for everything from swimming costumes to garden equipment you can shop through a portal that will allow you to direct a portion of your money towards a charity of your choice–without spending any extra money. The [...]
Did you know you can help good causes locally, nationally and globally? Do you know that there is a really diverse charity sector which should mean that there is something for every blogger who wants to engage and make a difference? This month’s charity round-up gives you an insight into the many ways you might [...]
It is Volunteers Week and BritMums wondered what type of voluntary activity parent bloggers were involved in at home and abroad. We know many bloggers are involved in our Charity Connections – Blogging It Forward group and help to raise awareness of charitable services and campaigns for free. However, we suspected our kind-hearted members might [...]
The finalists of the Change category are some of the many bloggers who have discovered they can use their voices and blogs for causes, raising awareness and funds, and being a force for positive change. Their topics might be global, local or personal. Whatever their cause, these bloggers did more than their bit, and helped [...]
I thought it would be nice to showcase a few new bloggers this month. Yes I know there’s a separate blog for that, but it’s bizarre how themes kind of create themselves and a lot of the suggestions this time round are from newer bloggers. (I’m not going to say which are which) – and [...]
Surprise! It’s me again. Sorry for the radio silence. One has had a rather frenetic few weeks (personal and otherwise,) and I haven’t known where’s one’s arse is, let alone one’s elbow. So … what’s new? Well, a lot of us met up at Cybher, which was great fun (my hotel room in Kings Cross [...]
What are bloggers doing to help charities and good causes? There are so many wonderful posts to choose from in the Charity Round-up. Let’s also highlight some rather fabulous charity blog hop/memes. These are a fantastic way to raise your profile and to make new blogging friends. They also provide ideas on those days where [...]
