Dumb question from a Newbie :)

How do you accept "friends"? I have had 2 notifications via email of a friend request but when I go to the "friend" area it shows nothing...I consider myself to be relatively competent in figuring out things like this normally, but I'm stumped. And I know it's going to be something simple and then I'm going to be embarrassed that I asked...blushbut you can't learn if you don't ask...right? 

Thanks!

Hi,

Welcome to CafeMom!

This info can always be found in the CafeMom FAQs:

How do I invite another member to be my friend?

To send someone a friend invitation, go to their profile page and click on the "Invite as a friend" link under their avatar. Once the other Mom accepts your invitation, you will be friends!

How do I send a message to another CafeMom member?


Here's how to send a private message:

1. Go to a member's profile page.
2. Under their profile picture, you'll see two links: "Send a message" and "Invite as a friend".
3. Click on "Send a Message".
5. The next page will allow you to compose a note.
6. Click the "Send Message" button when you're done.

Let us know if you have any other questions we are happy to help!

I am so happy to be back on Cafe mom and hope to connect with other moms who share my plight! I am looking for a twin mom group and cannot locate one! Am I missing it or overlooking it? I am a breastfeeding mom of 6 month old twin girls and I do wish I could find other twin moms to communicate and grow friendships with!

Thank you!
