is there a chowhound type board for babies
is there a forum like this where people post about getting good deals on baby stuff, like strollers, diapers, etc
and especially baby food and formula?
I used to lurk often on the IVillage Parenting Place boards. There are about a hundred different message boards on all different baby/child-related topics.
It isn't a board, but the Baby Bargain Book is a fairly decent source for comparisons of various baby products. In addition, the book contains useful lists like "10 least necessary products" and sensible suggestions about how much clothing a newborn actually needs.
The book is more useful if you are several months pre-baby and have not yet purchased big ticket items like a crib or stroller.
They do sponsor a web site, if I remember correctly.
