I really enjoy being a mom to my son, but lately I have realize that my life really has changed. Before I had my son my friend use to always come over and spend time with me but now all my old friend has new friends and I'm always in the house wishing I had someone to talk to just to express my concern.

I've definitely been where you are. My advice is to find a place where you can connect with other moms. The park is usually a great place to start. Even if your child is too young to "play" in the park, a nice stroll in the stroller may be great for both of you and there's very likely to be other parents there doing the same. Also, you may want to seek out playgroups or other activities for babies, like mommy and me classes. I signed my son up with Gymboree ( when he was six months old. My son is now 5 and we are still friends with three of the moms and three of the children that we met at Gymboree. One of the Gymboree moms referred me to what became my son's preschool, where we made many more friends. My son is now in first grade and tonight, I am having a moms-night-out with my preschool mom friends. Keep your old friends, but there are new friends out there waiting to meet you. Hang in there.

Do your old friends not have children of the same age? Mine don't, and I had to make a whole new set of moms in similar situations, because my childless friends didn't want to be around my kids. It is a great comfort to have friends who are at the same stage and lend an ear, support and advice. I met mine through a playgroup advertized on craigslist, and i have seen other playgroups and moms organize through local facebook playgroup pages.
