Why you need new mom friends

When I was a brand new mommy, I was lucky that my best friend had a baby of her own. Whitney seemed to have all the answers and didn’t mind if I talked about sleep, swaddles, and nursing… A Lot! The day I returned from the hospital, she dropped off some witch hazel and teeny hand-me-downs. Though she forgot a few of the specifics around my hour-by-hour and day-by-day worries, I couldn’t have asked for a better friend.

The importance of having parent friends (who can sympathize, empathize, and not get sick of all the stuff you say about baby minutia) cannot be overstated. I hope you can find that too.
