Online info and support - websites

With the  proliferation of websites offering information on many topics, including breastfeeding, I was wondering what sites are currently popular with mothers of new (or not-so-new) babies. If you are a new Mum, what websites do you go to?  Do you go to the well-known ones, such as KellyMom (US based), the (Melbourne) Royal Women's Hospital site, and the ABA site? Do you visit other sites you find helpful? Which ones?

As there is a mix of good and not-so-good advice online, which sites do you find relevant and reliable? What features make you suspect that a site isn't up to scratch - that it isn't for you?

Do you interact with an online mothers' group? Is it local or does it provide fellowship and support across time zones? For instance, if you are up at night with a baby, do you go online to chat with mothers for whom it is daytime?

By the way, on the LINKS page of this website I have posted links to other websites with helpful information on particular topics, for instance, safe sleeping or when to start complementary foods (solids). The links are there as a service to you.
