Motherhood is different for everyone


Mums Take Five are big fans of Medela and the work they do for Mums and Babies.  Medela recently shared with us their latest research which we found really interesting.  Not necessarily suprising but interesting.

Medela "Motherhood Is Different" + Giveaway

Medela are known for providing breastfeeding mums, families and communities with the leading breastfeeding products, expert insights, and ongoing research and education to support the breastfeeding journey.

Team Medela have been looking into Motherhood recently and in their research they conducted a survey with 4000 Australian Mums to discover how online parenting information and support networks support them in their role as parents. Results debunked the perception that there was an overload of information available online for mums and the assumption that most mums would depend on advice from their own mothers.

Did you find this surprising?  I know when i need any advice,information or guidence i tend to google it first.  Not the best thing to do when it comes to things that should really be discussed with a doctor but for the little things i always tend to go online. 

I wonder where books come in their survey, that used to be the thing to do before website. Parenting books, Baby name books. I can understand how there is a sense of overwhelm by some mums because instead of one or two books you have a plethora of websites of information from around the world. 

Medela have also recently come out with an app which i think would be helpful to a lot of mums and soon to be mums you can check out the new Medela App here .

Medela have also been working with some other bloggers/mothers and asking them about motherhood here's their little video:
