I'm with you op.
I don't think your saying you don't like these other mums just don't need to conversation to totally revolve around the things you mentioned.
It does get better but I found it's when the kids are a little older.
It can be hard to find other topics when babies are little because life tends to revolve around them.
I find my DH tends to go on and on to other people about our baby and don't get me wrong it's sweet but I wanna talk about adult stuff not how many poos he's done that day!
Since DD is in school I find it's much better.

Do you have any childless friends? I find that keeping in touch and going out with my childless friends is a nice break from "mama talk."

DD's almost 7. Conversation still often revolves around children, but it's also about how much we want to get a night away from our children, if our kids are doing well at school or not, the naughty funny stuff our kids get up to that we shouldn't laugh at but do.
Otherwise talking with school mums tends to be about houses, partners, etc. Kinda boring, but not so much "did you breastfeed/vaccinate/vaginal birth/etc."
