    And P.S try not to think of mothers groups as a group of friends who have been that way for ever.. Mums come and go, people move, kids get older... Most mums groups I went to were made up of new people in the same situation

    Bubbasmum you are not alone I am in the exact same boat as you. I wish I attended mothers group when I DD was born to but couldn't because all she did was cry being a colic/refluxy baby.

    I think we just have to make the move. I'm going to try join play group I think.

    Hugs hugs hugs for you x

    Please don't feel shy about joining a playgroup. I'm fortunate to be part of a great playgroup which started as a mother's group 13 months ago but we've had people come and go quite a lot during that time. I get calls from Mums looking to join us every week and we always try to warmly welcome them in, it's great to have some new faces.

    I remember the exact same thing happening to me. I so wished I had the courage to go over there and say 'hey hi there, im ******, I dont mean to sound silly but Im having such a crap lonely day is there any chance I could sit with you guys'?
    It took me at least a year of going to the same place to find a group of mums I hang out with regularly. Now I look at mums sat on their own and think I really should see if they want to join us, but I dont want to push myself on them if they just want time to themselves...

    If it helps, it gets way easier once babe starts school..

    I am still with my original mothers group after 5 years, but we don't see each other that often due to school and kinder. We're still close and love catching up, but honestly, I consider my BubHub friends that I have made to be closer (the ones I meet up with IRL). It can be daunting to meet up with Hubbers and get to know them, but I have found that once I started making friends it kind of snowballed and I find it much easier to make new friends. If it is important for you to have friends, don't give up. Keep trying and going to playgroups and meet up with BubHubbers if you can. Eventually you could meet a really good friend. Having friends really is great, so my advice is put yourself out there and join groups, and don't give up.

    It's not too late!! You can join Pre existing playgroups. At least try it and see if you enjoy it and make some nice friends. I don't know what I would've done without my mothers group. It's such a good support! I don't know where you're from but in WA you can just call playgroups wA to find out contact details for your local playgroups!! Good luck!! Hope you meet some nice mums soon!!
