Todobebé Inc, a leading multimedia company of dedicated to parenting, recently launched Mi Todobebé, a social networking site for Spanish speaking families planning, expecting, and raising children. On the new website, visitors can share pregnancy photos, videos of their baby’s first steps and questions about infertility, breastfeeding and raising their children.
The idea for the website initially came from members of the online forum community. They wanted an online space, in Spanish, where they could personalize their own pages, upload photos, and invite their friends and family to view and to share in the joy of their children’s first smiles, tooth, steps, days of school and other special moments.
“Todobebé has earned the trust of Spanish speaking families over almost a decade,” said Jeannette Kaplun, editor in chief, host and founder of Todobebé. “They know us from our book, our TV show, radio, events, and our website, and they share with us their pregnancy photos, the videos of their baby’s first steps and their questions about infertility, breastfeeding or raising their children.”
