5 Ways to Make New 'Mom Friends'

Making friends as a new mom is not always an easy feat. It’s like standing in the cafeteria on the first day of school surrounded by strangers wondering where you fit in – but this time you’re at the playground and you have a baby with you and you’ve just sang “The Wheels on the Bus” for the 1000th time, and you just want to have an adult conversation. Is that too much to ask?

Whether you’re at the grocery store, the playground, or The Little Gym, as a new mom you’re constantly scoping out potential mom friends, eager to strike up a conversation about ANYTHING. No matter where you are, making new mom friends does not have to increase panic or stress. Here are 5 tips for making mom friends with ease.  

  1. GET OUT OF THE HOUSE. No seriously, how are you going to meet any awesome new mom friends if you stay cooped up in the house all the time? Put yourself out there by getting involved in a mom’s group/mommy meet up. Enroll yourself and your little one in the Parent/Child programs at your local The Little Gym. Or head on over to the playground and scope out a mom that looks like you may have something in common with. It could be the start to a beautiful friendship!
  2. Find a friend? Get her contact information! Don’t be shy; finding new mom friends is like dating… if you find a mom you like get her number so you can see her again. If you guys don’t connect the second time around you can’t say you didn’t try! 
  3. Plan a play-date. Find a mom you like? And she has a little one the same age as yours? SCORE! Plan a play-date; this is the best way to get moms talking – to each other.
  4. Plan a “Mommy” play-date. Find a sitter or get your significant other to take the baby reigns, it’s time for a mom’s night out. Grab some drinks or dinner and enjoy a kid free night with your new friend. Moms deserve off nights too!
  5. Be yourself. This is the best way to find genuine friends that will last a lifetime.

Finding new mom friends may not always be simple, but having one, two, or five mom friends may make your days easier. Next time you’re at the grocery store, playground, or even your local The Little Gym, don’t be shy – strike up conversation and see where it takes you! There are plenty of fish in the sea and soon enough you will have a group of great mom friends that will last a lifetime.
