Online parenting groups can be an absolute lifesaver.
They’re the perfect place to get the answers to those late night (and occasionally nagging) questions, or simply a spot to lend support to parents going through the same thing.
But parenting groups can also provide a good laugh, for both the relatable parenting stories and all the different personalities out there.
And with Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis at home (and three kids under the age of 5), the Duchess of Cambridge needs as much advice as the next mum.
So, like millions of mums across the globe, she is said to have turned to the computer for advice. Or, well, the people behind the computers.
That’s right, Kate Middleton is reportedly an avid fan of both Mumsnet and BabyCentre.
She is said to post questions about things that she and Prince William disagree on when it comes to their three children – although a royal source said she uses an “anonymous name” while posting.
According to The Sun, the source told Reveal:
“Kate has turned to websites like Mumsnet and BabyCentre for guidance.
“She has adopted an anonymous name and mainly posts questions about issues she and Prince William disagree on, like watching cartoons before bed.
“Using these websites has really helped Kate, although she’d never admit to using the web for advice – the Royal Family tend to ‘just get on with it’ when it comes to raising children.
“But since mums on the internet generally agree with her point of view and not Will’s, she will go right on posting!”
