    Does anyone have Facebook? I use that a lot more so maybe we can add each other and organise meet ups that way

    Hi CharlotteandAnnie, I live in Marrickville so not far at all! I am 24, my daughter is 14 months. Another girl off here and I were planning on meeting for coffee this week but her bub was a bit sickly, so we are going to reschedule probably for next week. Do you have facebook? It would be easier to communicate through that

    What everyone could probably do is to arrange for mums to meet at the local mums group. I believe the name of the organisation is called. Play groups. Just google it, Im too lazy to look it all up. They have many playgoup locations.
    You can all pick and choose one, so that way its fair.
    You get to meet local mums who are in the same area.
    Usually there is a small fee either anually or monthly. Everyone who attends the playgoup brings something for tea. Like a cake. Yum!
    I have been to one, (I have been to many mothers group, a long time ago lol). The mums, even though some were say 10 years older than myself, were actually very friendly abd outgoing.
    You get to socialise more with different types of people. The kids also have more choices for toys and play equipment, and its safer too because you arent just taking your kids out to meet a total stranger alone, you will be in a group setting.
    I think its a win win, Id do it if I had more time to leave the house. Lol.
    Good luck to everyone who is trying to make friends, I know I have had a hard time finding good ones.

    Sorry just thought that I would mention.
    Playgroups sometimes run playgoups in church halls. Something like that, they have someone else in charge of running the group so noone will be stuck having to make all the decisions alone.
    Trust me, you dont want to have to be the one chasing after people, and getting stood up by them, if you are the one who already has a kid to take care of.
    Yeah someone else does that job. All the kums attend and you know what, if you think that people will judge you because you are young, the only person that you are limiting (sorry in my opinion always!) Is yourself.
    Dont let your age stop you from doing things you love, pursuing your dream job, even just talking to people in general. You will be surprised as to hoe many other mums are going through the exact same thing that you are.
    We are all mums in the end, it diesnt matter what we do with our lives. Just that we love our kids and they love and respect us as mums.
    Boy what a message kids get from mums who arent afraid of what other people think of them.
    People will think better if you. Just go for it!

    Hi, thank you for your input. Yes it is great to just go along to playgroups, and probably easier, bit if I wanted an easy life I wouldn't have had kids! I take my daughter to 3 playgroups a week, I work and I study at university, my age doesn't hold me back in the slightest. There is nothing wrong with wanting to meet some like minds, have a bit of a chat, make some new friends and that is what the group is all about! Perhaps if you hadn't jumped to the conclusion we are limiting ourselves out of fear of mingling with "older mums" you would find we are just as lovely, friendly and outgoing. And perhaps already a member of your local playgroup
