Want to meet other moms but??

I just moved not to long ago, and since havent really had a chance to meet new people. Tonight I emailed someone about a playgroup, and I think its just a moms playgroup the way she worded it. but I have a 22 month old baby whos 35lbs. I always have my husband lift him when needing because I have a prolapsed, (weak bladder) sooo my question I guess is how do I bring something like that up to a stranger? are dads aloud to goto playgroups too?
its just kind of embarrassing I'd rather say I have a bad back or something idk
any suggestions anyone?

  • I'd just ask if dads are welcome too... you don't even need to bring up your health concern. your DH might be a little weirded out by all the women, though. how about checking with your local YMCA or something for groups there?

  • as far as I know, dads go to playgroups. I mean, there are plenty of stay at home dads and all. you could always ask. and yeah, I'd probably say I had a weak back, too, until I knew them better. then I might tell. it's your buisness, and if it's not something you feel comfortable telling them, dont.

  • I would just ask if hubbies are allowed, if you want to say your back so be it, you would get the answer you need.. I think most have "mommy only times" and "family times"... since some of the woman just want womanly time to talk about private matters & you never know when some hubby is going to get annoyed with a man around his wife..

    Check out Meetup.com
    There could be a family group on there already in your area.. or on yahoo groups i think they have groups like that too.. Maybe you could make your own group where hubbys are optional..
