  • I woulda posted this one in the about cafemom forum...for future reference, but a bump is simply bumping up the post so it could be brought back up to the top of the page for more viewers to read or respond.

  • Wasn't sure where this was going considering it was in the parenting section, lol A “Bump” is used if you like the question posted and it also keeps the question in circulation. You'll see the word bump under the question, just click it and you've bumped the question.

  • The bump won't be on the questions you asked, it would be under other people's posts in the answers section. It would be in the center of the bottom part of your question. Bumps on the site in the forums, they are usually at the bottom of the page I think...reading Bump This.

  • welcome to cafemom.....
    go to someone elses question,at the bottom of the box their question is in there will be a few different things....
    there will be something to the effect of: SHARE THIS QUESTION,BUMP THIS QUESTION,and also something about facebook as well....if you like the question or you think this person had a great question just hit the "BUMP THIS QUESTION" button and it will add your bump to the list and bring that question up to the top of the forum so the other ladies can read and reply to it......you will get it dont worry.....
