    Default need advice

    Hi everyone. im looking for advice.
    I have just moved to victoria from nsw with my partner and.10 month old daughter. I am a young mum and my partner is now working morning and afternoon shifts so only sees us 1 hr during day and at night. When we lived in nsw my mum was there for my daughter so i could work to get me some me time but now living in vic i have no one and find myself sitting at home all day everyday feeling sad because i have nothing to do. I love my daughter with all my heart but only having her around me every day gets me upset and don't know what i'm going to do. Does anyone have any advice or if someone is going through this please post

    Can you look into mums groups/playgroups in your area? Even on facebook? Also check out the thread on here, im not sure how to link it, will find it for you.

    Ok so go into "chat with other parents & parents to be", "local groups, playgroups and meet ups" and select your state...

    Hope that helps

    It can be so lonely being a stay at home mum, so big hugs to you!

    Getting out of the house will definitely help - even a walk around the neighbourhood or to the park.

    Have a look what's available in your area because when my first was that age, we went to play group, reading time at the library and mums and bubs swimming. It's a great way to meet other mums and make some friends.

    Good luck!

    Thanks guys. I am not aware of any mums groups here but will have a look around. I took her swimming yesterday and she loved it so maybe a swimming class would be ideal

    yep - get involved in local things. Go to the shops.

    even chatting here on bubhub relieves the boredom - which I found fantastic especially when DD needed to be at home for her sleeps

    I am a Course Adviser and my company offers courses that are funded by the government to do at home. I did a Diploma last year in Community Services and with a toddler at home it really helped me find myself and have a healthy balance between me as an individual and me as a Mum

    Being a full time stay at home mum with no family support is tough.

    You will need to find local playgroups, and become active in the community. Go to as many as you can and are able to afford and break the day up. Go for a walk/park/clean/cook/relax/shops/play with bub.

    I have anxiety and moved to Melbourne also from NSW and putting yourself out there has been hard but it has become easier. Feel free to PM me
