10 times "Mom Friends" are really important

Before I was a parent I made friends quite easily. Like many, I had some friends from school, some from uni, some from work, some from previous jobs and some that I had just done along the way.

Do not care, it's great to have these people in your life, but it can be tricky to keep a friend alive when you have children, especially when worn by a common love of Jaegerbombs and dancing at 2:00.

For a short while, when your children are small, parenting becomes serious not to mention very tired. Good friends will know this and will be there to support you when needed until such time as weekends get crazy nights and spa days possible again.

But in the meanwhile you will find that there is a new kind of friend just waiting to be done, "Mum Friend".

Meeting classes, children's and toddler groups, birth groups online or just on the street (I was the person who would stop talking to someone literally with a baby!) In my opinion, mom's friends are an absolute necessity to navigate life with one baby or toddler

Here are a few times as mom's friends are crucial!

1. To ask "is it normal?"

Pro Tips: Your colleague who does not have children definitely does not want to see a photo of your child's dirty diaper. Other mothers, on the other hand, probably will not even bathe an eyelid, and it's always good to get a second opinion before going to the doctor's office to tell you about your baby's worms … which turns out to be melted the course.

2. To chat until 3 o'clock

Who else will be awake and willing to discuss the latest strict result, but another mom is also trying to be awake for the 37th night feeding?

3. To spend maternity leave with

It can be very lonely when everyone is back at work and you're alone with a baby and I really missed a banter and friendship in the office environment. Thank you to other mothers who can meet for a coffee or come over and chat while the kids staring at each other.

4. To cry the phone to

We All have those days. Mom friends will be able to relate and just know the right things to say. Or if they do not, maybe they just show up with cookies.

5. Not to judge you or your home to be a mess

Because when the child is ill or light, or if you have not been able to wash your hair for six days, they will not even comment. Last week it was probably them.

6. To discuss the children's TV

For example, how annoying Peppa Pig is, why Paw Patrol has no meaning and what CBeebie's presents are your fantasy man.

7. To understand the importance of milestones

Your baby puts back his own dummy? Just another mom will understand how amazing this is.

8. To pass hand-down-down

Especially when you are on the second round of infants, it is good to be able to send things to each other. It saves money and keeps things out of landfill too, win win!

Is it anything more boring than sitting there with a cup of junk to watch the children play? Take a friend, take a chat, make it a social occasion. Yes, this is the highlight of your week now.

10. For mother's nights outside

… And do not judge you when you forget that you're out of workout and need to go home early!
