I can't imagine why any HV would recommend any kind of chat forums to new mothers.
There are far too many different opinions and wildly different advice...talk about confusing for them
Then there's the My way is the only way merchants..quite frankly that'd be like having 1000 MILS on your back

Yeah but nobody gets away with spouting shite on Mumsnet. I reckon it would be a great thing if HVs gave out MN flyers. I mentioned this place to my (pretty on the ball) HV in the wake of rivengate and she knew all about it. I thought to myself she should have been telling me about it, now that would be useful!

I told my HV there had been a printing error when she gave me that leaflet.
Mind you she also told me as it was my third child that I wouldn't need to contact them . She was my 4th different HV. I don't understand why you're not given the same hv after each child because that had happened she would have known I had mild pnd after my 2 dd's.

What I meant about people not getting away with spouting shite is that if someone turns up and starts going on about how their 8 week old has been sleeping 12 hours since they started feeding it MacDonalds and putting brandy in the bottle then within ten minutes a raft of other posters will have turned up to quote guidelines and give references. Shite doesn't go unchallenged. Which is more than you can say for some HVs going by some people's experience. Sorry Dilly!
