Parents understand the power of a social network. From the day we bring baby home, we defer to experienced “been-there, done-that” parents and other newbies to answer pressing questions like, “what’s the tooth fairy’s going rate?” or “what’s the trick to getting a picky eater to eat?” almost daily. And what better place to expand your knowledgeable network than through the Internet’s original virtual network—Facebook. So whether you’ve got questions about baby wearing, need a play date in your ‘hood or want to trade out your tyke’s bike, we’ve got a group for you.
