You can not underestimate the power of having a village when you are a new mom! Coffee mornings, playgroups and meet ups are an excellent way to connect with other moms who have walked the boards before you or meet other new moms in the same boat as you. A lot of these groups will have lactation consultants or experienced breastfeeders in attendance and also other moms who can advise you if you are bottle feeding too. Connecting over coffee to discuss colic, sleep (or lack of it), feeding and adjusting to motherhood is an amazing way to keep the mind healthy and get out of the house. Let us know if you have a playgroup or coffee morning you would like us to list!
