Momaboard.com

I was told about this new site called Momaboard.com, and also asked to review it (I am saying this up front, in full disclosure), but I am not receiving anything for doing this, but decided upon using the site that I would gladly review it. This site was created as a social networking site for parents who travel with their children, which is something I hope to do more of with my own. I have went to South America when Mateo was six months, and have some trips to the United States planned next summer as well. So I thought I would check out this site, for trips and tricks to make travelling as painless as possible.

Now I do think this site will continue to grow and improve, so I believe you should really continue to come back and monitor this site. It does seem to have some formatting issues, depending on the browser you view it in.

When I started to look into the site, I realized it could be helpful for even weekend trips to family members' house. As anyone with young children will tell you, even one night away from home could seem like a week away, because of everything you have to pack, and the preparation for making this as smooth as possible from the comforts of home to someone else's house.

The question then I needed some answers to, was in regards to trying to get Mateo to sleep, as well as he does at home in his crib, when we travel. So I decided to create that as a discussion question under forums under the "rant and rave" section, and I did have some replies, but will continue to track the discussion for helpful advice. I will try to also write what has worked, failed or just started to change for Mateo (if it is just an age thing).
So check out Momaboard.com and follow the progress, even join in the discussion.
