MadeForMums joins up with Babyexpert

We've combined our two top parenting sites to make one great place for parents and parents-to-be

Great news! MadeForMums and Babyexpert have joined up to become one site, instead of two separate ones. So now MadeForMums houses everything that used to be on Babyexpert, as well as everything that’s already on MadeForMums.

Why has this happened?

Up to now, we’ve been running two sites for mums and mums-to-be. MadeForMums, as you know, has loads of really useful articles and product reviews on it, while Babyexpert is known for its friendly, busy Chat forum. We decided it makes sense to combine the two sites, to create a mobile-friendly place that has the best of everything that’s parenting-related.

It also means that, instead of splitting our time between two places, we can concentrate on doing a really good job in one place, giving you more of the stuff you like and responding better, and more quickly, to what you want.

So what do I need to do?

Nothing! We’ve done it all for you. If you’re a registered user of MadeForMums or Babyexpert, you can just log in and carry on as you always have. 

If you’re a regular Babyexpert forum user, you’ll find all your threads, past and present, on the new site’s Chat forum – only now they’ll be easier to see on a mobile phone and you’ll be able to post up pics from a phone!

Q Will I still have the same user name/screen name/nickname?


A
 Almost certainly.

If you’re a MadeForMums user, your user name will be the same unless there is an active Babyexpert user with the same user name. In this case, your MadeForMums user name will then have numbers added to it (so, if you are MrsMushroom, you’ll be MrsMushroom18743). You can choose either to carry on with this addition to your user name or to change your user name to something new.

If you’re a Babyexpert user who’s posted in the Chat forum at least once over the past two years, you will have the same user name for sure.

If you’re a less active Babyexpert user, you’ll still very probably have the same user name – unless there is a MadeForMums user who happens to have the same user name as you. In this case, your user name will have numbers added to it (so, if you are MrsMushroom, you’ll be MrsMushroom18743). You can choose either to carry on with this addition to your user name or to change your user name to something new.

If you’re hugely attached to your user name and don’t like the added numbers on the end, you can always talk to us and we’ll do our best to sort you out.

Q What will happen to all the threads I post on?


A
They’ll all still be there just as they were before. If you’ve come over from Babyexpert, there will be slightly fewer topics than there are at present (as we’d already outlined in our Topic tidy-up thread) but no individual threads will have be lost.

Q What if I’ve come over from Babyexpert and I’ve long forgotten my password?


A
 If you’re used to being permanently logged in on BX, and you’ve forgotten your password, you’ll be able to reset it. And, if you get stuck at any point in this process, we’ll help you out.

Q What will happen to all my old posts?


A
 They’ll all be there, just as they were before.

Q What about my Followed Threads list?


A
 They’ll all be there, just as they were before, but they will display slightly differently than you’re used to, if you were a Babyexpert user.

Q What about my PMs?


A
 They’ll all be there, just as they were before.

Q What if I’m a registered member of both Babyexpert and MadeForMums?


A
 We’ll have picked that up – and made sure you only have one merged account. Which user name is attached to that account ((if your user names for each site are different) depends on how active you’ve been on the Babyexpert forum.

If you’d posted on the Babyexpert Chat forum at least once in the past two years, you’ll keep your Babyexpert user name (if your user names for each site are different). And any posts you posted on the MadeForMums forum will change to your Babyexpert user name.

If you hadn’t posted on the BX Chat forum in the past two years, you’ll keep your MadeForMums user name (if your user names for each site are different). And, if you happened to have posted on the Babyexpert forum many moons ago, those posts will change to your MadeForMums user name.

If one of your user names is very precious to you and it’s going to be replaced by the other one, do please let us know and we will do all we can to sort it out for you. 

If you have a question that’s not answered here, you can always drop us email us at contactus@madeformums.com (we answer every mail that comes in) or you can post on the Official BX/MFM Join Up Thread and we’ll answer you there.
