Hi,

I have a 14mth old girl and I don't know anyone that has a toddler to meet up with for play dates, coffees, etc... She is in day care a couple of days a week to get social with other toddlers her age. I'm on Maternity Leave and am finding it slightly hard and bit of a struggle to keep busy with her on the days she is home. Not to mention keeping sane myself. Smile

I'm hoping there a support group for other mums with the same predicament or just want to get social with their toddler.

If anyone can recommend a group, want to start one or is in one that would welcome another toddler and mum to join please let me know.

Thank you,
Natasha

Hi Natasha,

I'm in Melbourne so can't really help - you're in Brisbane, yeah? 

Do any of these links help?

I've been to playgroups held in a church and playgroups held in a community centre, and both have been fantastic.

Hi,

Yes thank you. I have found a lot of groups meet during my daughters sleep times which I think is why I struggle to go to any of them. She is down to one sleep now and there was a couple that are while she's awake so I will be making contact and seeing how we go.

It's like the dating scene, you want to be able to click and connect with other mums so it's fun for both your toddler and yourself. Smile

Thank you again for your response!

Good luck!

I found the first 1.5 years really hard too. I was placed into a mums group that was run by the council, but I wasn't placed until my baby was 3 months old. Then after a few months, quite a few mums either moved away, or went back to work. The playgroups were all at the wrong time for my baby's sleeps, so I tried a music class and a gym class, trying to socialise my baby and to meet other mums – nothing seemed to work! It 
wasn't until I eventually found a playgroup that had a time that suited us, and started going there, that I found some really nice, friendly people. 

You're so right about the "dating scene" analogy. It's like dating for friends. So hard and society doesn't really support the notion!
