Peanut is the app for modern motherhood. We make it easy to connect and learn from like-minded women.
- MEET like-minded mamas nearby
- CHAT and arrange meetups
- JOIN groups relating to your interests and neighbourhood
- SHARE experiences across meaningful topics
They say it takes a village to raise a child; we help you find your village. Join our community of women today!
Here's what our mamas say:
"Peanut means a network, it means meeting new moms who are going through your same experiences. It means supporting one another through this wonderful adventure." - Alice
"It’s no longer necessary to feel isolated in motherhood — the Peanut app is a reminder that community is possible and we don’t have to do it alone." - Megan
"I wish I knew about Peanut sooner as it's so important to surround yourself with like-minded women during those initial overwhelming moments of motherhood." - Lydia
"Being able to connect with other moms, get advice and share struggles has been a huge gift and I have Peanut to thank." - Sarah
Since launching Groups, we wanted to make it easier for women to discover them. So, we now allow you to link your groups to relevant Packs. For example, if you've created a group about recipes, you can now link it to the 'But First, Food' pack. This will help us suggest groups to women who may like them!
We've also tweaked some error messages in the app to make it even easier to get in touch with our team. If there's ever anything you want to chat about, you can find us at email@example.com. We love hearing from you!
P.S. If you're lovin' Peanut, please rate us in the App Store!
This update includes stability improvements to v3.4.0

Great! But also needs so work
I really love the concept of this app! So far I have not made any real life connections in this app. Only virtually. But I’m hoping that will change soon!! A big part of why I didn’t give this app five stars is because it’s not exclusive when searching for what you’re looking for. I have a special needs son and am looking for other moms in my area who also have special needs kids. There’s not an option to filter your searches using the badges on your profile. Additionally, I’d love to be able to creat a group on here for special needs parents where I can set up events or book clubs or play dates for our kids with special needs. Or even just talk about our struggles within the group. Unfortunately that’s not an option yet, but I’m hoping it soon will be!
Finding moms to talk to on here has been great!!! I hope to keep making connections, but hopefully I’ll be able to make more connections with moms I have things in common with.

Best thing since slice bread! Lol
I must say not being from the DMV makes it hard to just jump into friendships with people. My story... I met friends through work then shortly afterwards got pregnant and they dropped me like a sack of potatoes lol So yeah there with my clan :-(. Why do people with no kids think if your pregnant then you can’t hang out or too tired too 🙄. Anywho I came across this app and I must say it was one of the best most refreshing discoveries ever! Whomever thought of this was genius lol. I will say to meet other mothers going through your journey. Getting to share each other’s journey and talk about things that you both can relate to is priceless. Building bonds with other woman and solid friendships are hard to come by. This app has change my social life completely. Meet my first mom (1week apart) this Sat! So I’m super excited and to know that the moms I meet are close by makes for more opportunities to build on the bond. Can’t wait for the time I’m able to take my son out on play dates 😊

Cool idea, bad execution
This is a really great idea to help us lonely moms find friends. However, you awkwardly feel like you are on a mommy dating app—trying to find other moms that will match with you. Then when you do match, they give you the most interesting small talk conversation topics. I do like that they have groups around and they set up dates to get moms out together at a park etc. There is one other dark twist to this app: the feature that allows you to post anonymously. Most of the women on there are berating their spouses/ significant others. I am strongly opposed to “husband bashing” and I don’t think that this should be tolerated. Or to the same extreme other mothers are complaining about how much they hate motherhood, and are probably in a depressive state, but because they are posting anonymously nobody can report them, especially when I’ve seen posts that seemed borderline suicidal. I really wish that they would get rid of that feature, and make the environment up-lifting. I would always leave the app feeling sad, and in kind of a dark place. I definitely will continue to try and make mommy friends the old fashioned way.
