Content includes special guest contributors, blogs, a forum and online product offers. It features articles on subjects from growing plants to funding children through university and getting ready for a party.

Marketing for the site will include targeted emails and direct mail to drive registration, supported by newsletters and consumer promotions, competitions and surveys.

Alex Lloyd Davies, associate marketing director at P&G, said: "Our research identified the decline of the ‘yummy mummy' and the subsequent rise of the ‘savvy mummy' as a major societal trend.'
