My experience with Getting out

Last week I felt so embarrassed and anti- social at this reading event for Infants and toddler's. Let me tell you my reason why: 1. I haven't made any new friends since my daughter was born so I suck at talking to people now. 2. My daughter's 6.5 months and there was no other babies there her age or around her age. 3. I'm a young mother about to be 22 and they were all older so I felt like I didn't fit in at all. 4. I'm a mom who loves to dress my daughter and me up so I was wearing high heel boots which are my favorite. 5. I just sat with my daughter on my lap feeling awkward since No one said Hi I just stood back. 6. I'm not married just in a relationship with my daughter's father. 7. it's hard for me to find friends because I can be outspoken. Now I leave my post with this question: Have anyone in here dealt with having a hard time finding friends after having a baby? and how did you fix this issue?

As an 'older' mum please know nobody is judging you😊we're all struggling at times and it's hard to just socialise cos baby comes 1st..being a mum is hard work regardless how old you are. Being a mum makes you a frigging rockstar no matter who you are! You don't need to be married motherhood is a blessing however it comes about. I dress me and baby girl up all the damn time haha if anyone has an issue with it they can suck an egg! It's hard to be a mum and connect with other mums people are just as shy and just as nervous as you half the time which is why they don't introduce themselves don't take it personally. I'm outspoken too which is fine if people are over sensitive that's a them problem not yours! Be you be the great mum you already are. xx

I relate to you so much!! I love dressing my daughter up even though I’m usually in a T-shirt. And I’m 21 and a single mom. I get judge mental stares and nobody talks to me 😬 I try to be nice to other moms but we’re always in opposite points in our lives with them married, older than me, and so many other differences. It’s SO hard!!

I struggle soooo much. I don’t understand how some can just have so many mom friends.. it’s lonely for sure and I feel your pain!
