Read back on some of our favorite Hot Spot Groups:


Breastfeeding Working Moms -- Group Review

Breastfeeding Working Moms was a popular group in the Group Owners Club journals and it's nice to see it here as well. This is a group that is focused on the issues and obstacle that the working breastfeeding mom faces.  You do need to apply to join this group and the Games forum is filled with fun posts and is open to all CM members to look through.

This is a simple group with just the two forums. Still it is packed with lots of support and resources.  In the General forum, you can share information about beast pumps, ways to deal with your employers, and ideas to make pumping go more smoothly. The most important thing this group offers is the knowledge that you are not alone in struggling to continue in your choice to breastfeed your child once you go back to work. Many of the group's most active members have been there and are filled advice, support and hugs.

Hot Spot/ CHILDREN OF THE 60'S

I am not a 60's baby but it was so much fun reviewing this group.  Children of The 60's! is a group for women that was either born in the 1960's or just love 60's rocking music, bright colors, movies you name it. The 1960's is known for it's very popular dance "The Twist"! So if you want to learn  how to "Twist" this is the group to be. Children of the 60's does go by Cafemom's rules so if you have a bad attitude then this is not the place for you. There is no bashing in this group so feel free to admit that you love "The Beatles" and you are not alone. Want to talk about one hit wonders they also have a spot for that. This group is all about the psychedelic 60's. You can even get a decked out design. They welcome you with  open arms so bring your oldies and chat with the Children of the 60's. Again Congrats Children of the 60's!!

Children of The 60's!



Review: All Things British

It was super fun to check out this group. Sometimes we forget that not all cafemom  members are from the US. This was a great chance to explore somewhere else just a little. This group doesn't use an application and a bunch of forums are viewable before joining.

Being a a huge fan of British comedy on PBS I really enjoyed looking through the Entertainment forum. Nearly every mom on this site can name at least one British author {wink wink}. The Books/Authors forum offers some great discussion on a whole bunch of others. The Culinary Delights forum is full of great food ideas. From recipes, to a guide to Pubs and a British Foods Guide. The Travel Forum offers some great tips for travelling to and around the UK. There are several more great forums offering Sports, UK News, Fashion and for the cafemom faithful, an Introduction forum, games, member celebrations and general discussion.

I enjoyed my vacation in this really fun group

Group Review: Classic Rock Mommas!!

Classic Rock Mommas!!

We all know that Classic Rock, well, rocks!! I am a more than a little disconcerted to find that I am now in the right age bracket to be considered classic anything. I certainly recognize nearly every band I came across in the group and can even admit to having them on my playlist right beside Selena Gomez and The Jonas brothers (for my 7 y/o is my story, and I am sticking to it).

Classic Rock Mommas!! does not require an application to join. There are two forums that are open to Cafe members before joining. The first, Welcome Cafemom Members! , has some fun information about the group in addition to rock n roll birthdays,  fun headlines and other fun stuff. Be sure to click "See All Forums" in order to find it. The other forum is CRM's sister groups. If you are looking for fun groups, then this forum is a must see.

I am not sure why this group hasn't blown up the CafeMom scene. It has all the right ingredients of a great group. Great admins (just ask any member in any of their groups), fun active members and a topical topic.

There are several forums in the group. Start off in the Welcome and Introduction forum to say hello, leave your name and get some tips for posting in the group.  In addition to the main discussion forum, Classic Rock News & Everything Else, there is the Classic Rock Trivia Forum, and Question of the day. A forum for posting music videos and a Classic Rock Group of the Week forum. As one cannot live on classic rock alone (though wouldn't it be fun to try), there is also the Classic Rock Momma of The Week forum, the Game On! forum and a siggy forum, The Designer's Corner. Or you can just relax in The Party Lounge

If you are looking for some fun conversation about your all-time-favorite bands, fun polls or great trivia, Classic Rock Mommas! has it 'covered'!
