  • Well, I didn't really. I'm lucky that we have lots of friends and family with kids, and a few of my friends are sahm's and have babies around his age, so he gets to play with them. However, you can look up different sahm play date groups and things like that.

  • I am not af any help here, but I just took my daughter to my Mother's friends home. My Mother's friend used to whatch her grandchildren which meant my Mother could visit with her friend while I watched the children.

  • We started with story hour at our public library. Met several moms there. Then our boys went to preschool at age three.

  • www.meetup.com A free website with tons of meetup groups about almost anything. Search for mom groups or playdates and by zip code. Most groups are free to join but some have fees.

  • I joined a MOPS group last year and I loved it, I was so sad to leave all of the great women that I met there when we moved out of state. http://www.mops.org/ 


    I just recently joined a group on meetup.com you can search for groups by zip code.

  • None.  I didn't hang out with anyone but my husband and neighbor when my kids were babies.  As they got older they made friends in our neighborhood.  We don't do "playdates" even now.  My kids only ever interacted with each other as babies/toddlers.  It wasn't until my oldest was preschool age did they really start playing with other kids their own age that they weren't related to.  My kids have no problem making friends now.  Every kid in the neighborhood is friends with my kids.  They are constantly knocking on our door on the weekends (we had 4 kids over the other day).

  • I go to La Leche League meetings and then on the weeks they don't have meetings we meet up at the park on Thursdays. My daughter is still a little young to get much out of it, but it's good for me to have adult interaction other than my husband.

  • I met some great moms through the la leche league and I also run a playgroup on meetup.com with about 80 moms. We've got a close group of friends through that group and my oldest just started pre-k, so we are expanding our friends! If there isn't a group in your area, start one! Message me if you need any tips! ;)

  • I joined MOPS. It has been amazing for both me and my daughter. It is a great way to meet other mothers who know exactly what you are going through, and for your child to get some play time with other children. I am sure there is one in your area. www.MOPS.org
