Review: Mamapedia

Mamapedia is a website full of advice given by moms, for moms. Mom Central asked if I'd check it out and let my readers know about the site, and after I took a quick, initial look, I agreed.

I like the fact that it is free! The site has over a million questions and answers about pretty much everything and anything you could think of -- for kids from infants all the way through adults (because we all know being a mom doesn't end when our kids turn 18!)

The search function works well, and I was able to search for answers about dentists, reading levels and stuttering in just a few minutes. I did find that it worked better if I enclosed multi-word searches with quotations. When I searched for reading levels, I had results about reading, but also about hcG levels and protein levels. When I added quotation marks around multiple words, the search returned entries with all words included.

If you can't find an answer to your question, you can ask your question and wait for the answers from other moms.

It's an interesting resource that I've added to my bookmarks. Check it out!
