My DS was 2weeks old when I started - the others ranged from 3 months to 1 month old.
Best wishes 😀

I didn't go with any of my 3 and I wish I had.
I would have made new friends, shared new experiences and so forth. It wasn't till I had my 3rd that I realised how nice it would have been if I could have gone somewhere, had a chat, heard how other mums dealt wit the tough times and what not.
Go and have fun I say. 😊

Can you maybe research other mums groups that may not be so soon but that you don't have to wait 3 months?
I joined one when my DD was 3.5 months and I still found it very useful and still catch up with 6 of the mum's. 4 of us have all gone on to have second babies within 6 months of eachother.
So it might not be so bad if you wait. Especially if you can't drive. Do you have any other way of getting there?
If you wait until 3 months you still have all of us and your DIG for advice in the mean time!

If you do it through the MCH centre you only get the one that's local to you. If you choose to join a later group you may miss out if there happens to be a lot of babies born after you. They try to group the babies by age so the mums will have the most in common.
Speak to the child health nurse about how it works in your area. That's how it worked when I was in Melbourne (but was about 10 years ago).

I took my DS when he was 2.5 weeks! And he wasn't the youngest. It was awesome. We are a very diverse group but that's part of the fun. The bubs are 7-8 months old now and we're catching up tomorrow!
