Frequently asked questions
Who is the app for?
Band of Mothers is designed for any person who identifies as a mother and wants to connect with other moms and the brands who support them.
Who created this app?
Band of Mothers was created by Band of Mothers Media (Happy Sad Cake LLC), the same team who created The Pump and Dump Show and The Pump and Dump Podcast.
What is your Zero Tolerance Policy?
Our mission for this app is to provide a safe space for community, resources, support, humor, friendships and communication between moms. It is also our mission to promote civil, responsible discussions - even when opinions differ. The truth is, there are all kinds of moms who are raising their kids in the best ways they can, and we respect that. We also love that we can learn from other people with different points of view and parenting approaches. What we do not respect are trolls and bullies, and anyone posting or commenting with disrespectful, rude or inflammatory language. We want you to behave on this site in the exact way you tell your kids to behave: with kindness and respect and anything less than that will not be tolerated. If a user flags another person for unacceptable behavior, that user will receive a public warning from our admin. If a user is flagged a second time, their profile will be disabled and they are no longer welcome on BOM. Zero. Tolerance. Because nice people are WAY more fun to be around.
Am I allowed to curse in my posts?
Yes, but please don’t go on an expletive-filled rant that’s going to offend a bunch of well-meaning mamas. That’s just not a good way to communicate and it will get you flagged for sure.
Can I create a private group for all the moms in my kids dance class, for example?
What does the green check mark mean?
What are BOM Deals?

Can I request a public group to be created?
Totally! We love any and all input from our community! If you have an idea for a group, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your request.
POSTS AND CONTENT
How do I search posts?
Can I delete posts?
Of course! First go into the detail view of the post by tapping on the post’s info banner which contains your username and number of likes, etc. Once in the detail view, click the icon at the bottom left hand corner of the post and you will be given the option to delete your post.
Why can’t I share posts outside of the app?
The Band Of Mothers app includes plenty of exclusive content that is not available anywhere else. Anything that’s exclusive cannot be shared to make sure it is only available to users of the app.
Can I save content to view again later?
Not just yet! This feature will be available in a future release. For now, we recommend simply screenshotting the post.
FRIENDS + MESSAGES
Can I add someone as a friend from the wall?
Sure can! If you see someone on the wall that you would like to connect with, tap on their avatar - this will take you to their profile which will have a button that will allow you to send them a friend request.
How do I change my profile photo?
Go to your profile by tapping your name in the menu and tap your profile photo to change it.
How do I log out of the app?
To log out you can go to your profile page by clicking on your username in the menu and then clicking “settings” - you will then see an option to log out.
