Welcome to the friendliest app for mums.
When becoming mums turned their worlds upside down, Sarah and Katie created Mush to provide friendship, support and meet-ups.
If you’re seriously sleep-deprived and looking for expert advice or just solidarity, if you’re gagging to meet mums in your area with kids the same age, if you’re looking for entertaining reads on all things motherhood to get you through the long days (and even longer nights), Mush is here for you.
We know that motherhood is amazing, but we know it can be tough too. Mush can transform your days – and your nights.
So, what's Mush all about..?
1. Find mums who are nearby with kids the same age
You can message them and meet in your favourite coffee spot, park… or wine bar!
2. Join local meet-ups
Check out your home feed to see what's going on nearby now that you’ve joined mum world.
3. Ask questions about your baby
Chat to our friendly and reassuring community about the things that are puzzling you.
4. Read our great guides based on your kids' age
We have brilliant writers who’ve been there, done that and have written some very entertaining articles about it.
5. Most of all.... realise you are not alone!
Come and join hundreds of thousands of mums who realise being a mum is more fun when we do it together

Ratings and Reviews
Ok so for what it basically is, an app to meet other mums and dads - it’s fine. There’s some very annoying usability problems with this app and as the user base and content has grown and evolved naturally, this app has not. Admins keep banning/erasing content which is “buy/sell” even when it is in the buy/sell thread. The interface should only allow you to post into the buy/sell group and not allow other groups to be tagged at the same time. Or alternatively every local group should have a sub-thread which is buy/sell. This would make more sense as something for sale in Leeds may not be applicable for London N1.
People can spam by joining 100s of groups and posting to all of them. Interface should only allow you to post to X number of groups at a time. EVERYTHING appears in your mush ups feed. This should be split out and you can filter on groups which you want to see - like a main menu to choose which group you want to view.
You can request to befriend someone but you can’t undo it.
Mush ups should have date fields and perhaps there could be a calendar function to promote that content.

Thank you, this is really helpful feedback. A lot of this stuff we are working on at the moment as we are now overhauling the app having grown so quickly. You can turn off buy/sell notifications and you can already post to a number of groups at the same time - but not everyone is doing this so we need to improve! Thanks again, will share with the team.

Great idea but app is poorly built and full of bugs
The concept is a fantastic idea and it genuinely works however the app itself is full of bugs - I get a red number for notifications, log on, sometimes there’s nothing, sometimes there’s a few new posts, I clear them all in app but the red badge on home screen remains. I have recently started randomly having a lingering notification to complete my profile and upload images - even though I’ve completed that stage. Sometimes it disappears for a few minutes and then it comes back again. Others have complained that it doesn’t let them log in. Character restriction on messages makes in depth conversation difficult - other mums and I have swapped numbers instead as it’s easier to message on other platforms. Option to see new mums - can’t remove the mums that I’ve already looked at/not interested in so have to sift through all of them before getting to anyone I haven’t seen before. Sometimes really really slow to load.
Would be nice to have more features like being able to respond to a particular comment/tag others and being able to turn notifications off about a post you’ve previously commented on but are no longer interested in. Also annoying how you can’t choose how to crop your profile picture - my heads chopped off on all of them 🤷🏻♀️

Hi, it sounds like you are having some specific issues with the app which we would love to address for you -please email us firstname.lastname@example.org
Great concept but...
Not much activity going on, would be good if it weren’t so dead, can connect with endless amounts of people and get no response, a lot of inactive profiles, you can tell by the age of their child in their description is way off the age updated by the app...as well as getting no response. Barely one post each day on the home page and they’re lucky to get a response, I’ve tried changing my location to cover other areas but seems it’s just as dead everywhere, it’s a shame as it’s a really good idea, I’ll hang in there a while longer before I give up and become one of those inactive profiles.
Also it’s really annoying when searching for mums, once u click on their profile and connect with them, u click back to the list of mums and you’re taken right back to the top of the list every time. The odd time I have had a reply I don’t get a notification on the inbox, i only realised i had a message when i pulled the screen down to refresh by accident.

Hello - it looks like you are using an old version of the app - if you update you will have access to all of the latest features. I'm not sure which location you are in but we have a very busy and engaged community on Mush and lots of posts and meet-ups being posted all of the time. We do also encourage users to contact us via the app so that we can investigate specific problems people are having if we are unaware then we can't fix them. If you would like to chat further please email us at email@example.com
