Whether you are a new mom, single mom or a seasoned mommy, there are times you are bound to feel isolated and without the support of those who understand what you are going through. I myself am not a mommy, but I have several mommy friends and I watched my mom raise my brother and I all on her own, and when I say a support system is definitely how they made the most of their situations it is the TRUTH!

Are you wanting and yearning to get out and meet new people, or desire to talk to other women who get why you are so obsessed with your baby’s newest habit, etc.? Well, if you are struggling to find other mommy friends try any of these suggested ideas:

Take a Class

Mommy and me classes are becoming the newest trend for mothers who want to take a hobby or athletic-based class, but can’t leave their children behind. Look up local music, art, swimming, yoga, gymnastic, cooking, etc. classes that both you and your young one can enjoy together. Not only does this give you a chance to bond with your child, you can also meet other mothers and their children.

Find a Park 

Taking your kiddos to the park is the perfect place for you and them to find friends. Kids can become friends after a few shared jumps down the slide. This is the perfect time to plan play dates and get to know their newfound friend’s parents. Many times kids are the reason for their parent’s friendships.
