My son will be 1 in a few days. Should he have friends or playmates right now. I'm a stay at home mom, and don't know many people here, so he's with me all the time. I feel bad that he doesn't know any other children his age. I don't want him to be antisocial when he's older. For his birthday it's just gonna be me and his dad. Is this wrong?

Personally, I don't think a 1yo needs friends. Kids that young don't usually play with each other anyway. They will play next to each other but won't share or join in. My kids only ever had each other growing up. And my oldest only had me until her baby brother was big enough to play with (when she was about 2). They are all normal, well adjusted kids with lots of friends.
