How to Make New Mom Friends

There comes a time when every new mom longs for actual, adult conversation to supplement the cooing and baby talk. That's where making mommy friends comes into the picture. Developing relationships with other new moms will not only help preserve your sanity but could also benefit your baby's development, by providing easy opportunities for your little ones to socialize and play together.

But how do you meet new mom friends when you're busy with your new baby? Turns out there are a few ways to go about it that fit nicely into any schedule.

Start early. You don't have to wait until your new baby is born to make new mom friends. Strike up conversations with women in your childbirth class or the mom-to-be whom you often see in the OB waiting room, for example. You'll be raising babies of roughly the same age, and you can experience parenting milestones together.

Hit the gym. This doesn't necessarily mean signing up for the next cardio workout series (although that's always fun, too). Going to mom and baby classes — such as yoga classes conducted with babies in tow — at the gym or exercise studio is a great way to meet other new moms in the area, all while your tot crawls around and gets extra tired for his next nap. It's a win-win for you both! Or you can pick a gym or studio that offers child care, and seize the opportunity to chat with other moms who are dropping off their little ones.
