My baby boy is 4 months old. I am a first time SAHM. Somedays get really lonely and I feel shut out from the rest of the world. I think even just having other people to text or email would help me feel better. Anyone else feel this way?

I feel your pain. I started staying at home when I moved to a new state with my husband and 7yr old three years ago. Now we have 2yr old twin girls and I have absolutely no time for myself or to enjoy with anyone. It can get really lonely and overwhelming to have all these things trapped in your mind and no one to talk to. I can honestly say I probably go out less than 5 times/yr without the kids...and it's usually with my husband (haven't met new friends in new area). IT SUCKS! We all need a break and/or someone who can relate so we don't go crazy!

I understand how you feel I'm a first time mom to a 51/2 month old boy and I have my days where I feel horrible because I don't have many mom friends and my son doesn't gave other children to interact with it really gets to me I feel like a horrible mother because of it, I've tried meet up but there us no one in my area , so my solution to feeling lonely and like a horrible mother,I try to get outside as much add possible I take my son to this beautiful park near my house and its right across from a library I try to go add often as possible,I feel being indoors to much is bad for mommy and baby's energy you should try going out add much as possible if you see other moms try talking to them see of they are in need of friends but getting out of the house is key!

I definitely feel you!! I have been a Stay-at-home-mom for about two years now, and I still get lonely, and feel like I have no friends! I think we need to find a hobby! Your baby is so little that you are probably going through a bit of depression from that alone. Im here when you need a friend!

I also have a four month old, and she's recently taken to fussing a lot :/. So I am going a little insane on account of that and the loneliness. Also, it's getting cold here so we will be even more of shut-ins. Needless to say, I feel your pain. Somedays I would love to get out of here for an entire afternoon and do something for me. I dont think I've been away from her for more than one hour!

When he gets a little bit older it will change I felt like that as well time seems slow but before you know it he will be up running around driving you nuts enjoy the time . I feel your pain uggh my daughter is three now and can remember lie it was yesterday how closed off from the world I felt trust me time will fly by as soon as he starts meeting his milestones.
