Desperately Seeking A Baby Group
In just over a year, I have moved to a new part of New Jersey, lost my job and had a baby. I think the hardest part of it all was moving to a new part of the state. The problem – I don’t know anyone around here. My friends are all in Manhattan with full-time jobs and it’s even harder to visit them now that L is here.
I had thought it would be easier to meet some new friends with a baby. I had thoughts in my head that I would easily meet a cool group of ladies to hang out with who had equally cool babies. Realistic, right? Ha! My sister found herself in the same predicament years ago when she moved to another state and had a baby the next year. She ended up meeting other ladies but it did take a while to happen.
I spent much of yesterday stalking the internet for music, gym or swim classes. L already LOVES the bath/water so swim might be a good one to take. The problem I am encountering is that L can’t go to anything till he is 4 months old and swim doesn’t start till 6 months. The one good thing is that babies can start going to our gym pool at 3 months.
I guess until L turns 3-4 months old, we are on our own. I am not putting it past myself to chat up some ladies with newborns at the shops or the mall. Hope someone out there wants to hang out with us.
How did you get into a baby group? Any suggestions on how to find one?May 18, 2012
