I do like a glossy magazine and fancied getting a subscription to a parenting one but I didnt think much of the ones I tried out that I got from WH Smith. Just wondering if there are any good ones out there that I might have missed?

How old are your children? I read Junior from when mine were about 6months until about 5years and really enjoyed it. It is quite 'middle class' grin but if you get past the Ralph Lauren ads, there are some good articles about different aspects of parenting, including lots of info about, eg, hearing, allergies, toilet training, nursery, etc.

I LOVE Juno magazine, needs to be ordered on-line and it is aimed at the 'green' parents I think!

Just be aware what you buy - I used to buy a popular mum mag when I had ds1 and 2 years later after ds3 I started to buy it again and saw a familiar face ....a woman having twins I remembered her story from all those years before because she had the same maternity nighty as me ......turns out it wasnt her second set of twins it was the same story same pictures everything 7 years later!!!.

I had a browse through the green parent magazine on a friends coffee table. Looked good from what I saw, keep meaning to look them up.

Not quite a glossy magazine but I do like the parenting section of the Guardian on a saturday.

I read Junior for years when my DC were small. I thought it was the best by far.
