Hi, my name is Krystal and I have a beautiful baby girl whose name is Cailey.She is 10 months old and I had her when I was 20.Now that Cailey is getting to that interactive age I am really eager to find her some lil friends that she could play with.None of my friends have babies and I am having a very hard time finding moms my age to talk to.If there are any moms who are in their early 20's who would like to chat please get back to me.I live in Vancouver,BC and it would be great if we could get to know each other.

Hi! I'm Corinne Im 22 living in Burnaby. I have 1 boy Brian who just turned one :) i know this was posted awhile ago. It's tough finding other young moms in the area who are nice, all my friends are back home in Winnipeg, and I lost my university friends when i got pregnant it's sad that it's this hard to find friends. give me a shout if you wanna chat :)

Hi. My name is Desirée i'll be 21 next march. my daughter Lillian will be 18months at the end of the month & i feel the same as you. after i got pregnant my closest friends, the ones i considered family turned their backs on me. my (ex)best friend had a miscarriage only a couple weeks b4 i found out i was pregnant. i miss all my old friends & all the good times we all had together, but if i didnt have Lilly when i did i would have found out even later how terrible they really are. i live in MI. there are a lot of young moms around but i havent reallly met any that i get along with or connect with cuz most of them are more interested in partying than taking care of their kids. & it drives me crazy to see these babies neglected the way they are & the state not care to do anything about it. i talk to a couple moms my age with kids close to Lilly's age but i dont talk to them often. 1 lives a few hours away & is like i said a bit more interested in partying than worrying about her kid, hes constantly being taken care of by someone else. & the other mommy lives nearby but she has friends she hangs out with & we dont talk much... (i think it might just the awkwardness between us b/c she used to date my fiance/baby daddy. idk i dont feel that uncomfortable around her anymore but i think she might...) i've tried searching for moms my age in my area like in mom groups & stuff but no luck yet =/

I am 22 and have a three year old daughter. I live in SC and I have only one friend that I kept in touch with since I had my baby. I think the only reason we have stayed in touch was because we lived together before I got pregnant and after I had my daughter. None of my friends are having babies either, so I spend a lot of time at home with my daughter, at school or at work. I am involved in an ECFE class with my daughter, swim lessons and we are members of the YMCA so I have met a lot of other moms that way. If you have a Facebook, I would love to talk to you sometime!

Have you tried finding out where the nearest strong start is? also ask about local mommy groups when you take her in to get her vaccinations. That's what I did and discovered that there's actually several of them in our small community. I'm 20, have a 20 month old and another on the way so I definitely know how you feel. i live over in ladysmith.

Hi Krystal.



I'm Amber, i'm 20 years old and i have 2 boys. My oldest is 2 1/2 and my baby is 6 weeks. None of my friends have kids so i know how you feel. My Husband is in th Army and is in Korea for one year while we're here in the states. It really sucks cause i miss him and i have to be mommy and daddy to my boys. I live in lancaster california and i'd love for my son to have playmates. I'd like to get to know lots of young mommies and there lil kids.

Quoting Chelsey:

Hey Krystal, my name is Chelsey and I am 20, my son Landyn is 9 months old. I completely understand the difficulty of finding other moms our age. I live in Chilliwack, bc which is such a small place, thus making it even harder. If you wanna chat just message me back :D



Hi Chelsey,



     It's nice to know that I'm not the only one who is having this problem. I guesse that its true when  they say that you find out who your true friends really are once yuo have a baby. I had lots of friends before but they semed to have no problem turning their back once i had my daughter.I really think that its a horrible thing.Now i find myself very isolated and lonely at times.But when i look at my lil girl i  know that its all worth it.She has truly made me a better person and i couldnt be more happier.I would love to chat with you and get to know you.



Thanx for the reply.



Krystal

It is really hard. I feel lonely alot. Most of my friends dont have kids and just dont get how different it is. Try googling moms groups. Thats what I did when I moved away from my hometown. I found mine on Meetup.com. We have playdates and just have people to talk to

Hi Krystal. I'm Jennifer and live in New York. I had my first baby girl when I was 18 and I know how you feel! I love all my friends but my husband and I are in such a different place in our lives it was and is hard to keep close with them. I'm 23 now and have 3 kids. Life is busy!
