The experience of over 240,000 Australian parents at your fingertips
Essential Baby is the largest online parenting community in Australia (and one of the largest women's communities) providing information and resources for conception, pregnancy, birth, baby, toddler, kids, parenting and women's lifestyle.
The Essential Baby community provide each other with friendship, support and advice as they travel through the journey from conception to baby and beyond.
Essential Baby hosts the largest and most active parenting forum in Australia with an average of 1,600 members online in peak times, yet most of the time it feels like being at a get-together with friends. The forums are supported by an amazing team of 30 moderators helping to oversee more than 10,000 posts per day.
Essential Baby also provides topical editorial related to all aspects of parenting and stages of development for babies and toddlers. Tapping into Australia's most respected media organisation, Fairfax Media, Essential Baby informs our audience of the latest parenting news around the world. EB's sister site, Essential Kids, offers parenting information to parents of preschoolers and school-age children.
