The new social networking sites will provide links to the Mothercare's main e-commerce website, although the company has denied it is seeking to roll out new standalone stores in the US.

In India, Mothercare plans to increase the number of stores from 20 to 100 over the next five years.

The company has tailored the new Gurgle websites for the specific US and Indian markets, and its UK site, launched last year, currently has 70,000 members.

Ben Gordon, Mothercare chief executive, said: "Gurgle could be a global concept, its content is getting better and better."

Mothercare reported total group sales had increased by 9.9% in the 28 weeks leading up to October 11, including 0.8% growth in the UK and 9% internationally.
