“Something as simple as going outside and getting some vitamin D was super mood-boosting for me when I was having a hard time post-partum.”
“Building your mom crew can be a little bit like dating. It’s about finding who you gel with and have stuff in common with besides your kids.”
“When you feel like you vibe with a fellow mama, ask for her number and see if you can grab a coffee or get the kids together. You never know where it could go!”
“Everyone loves to feel seen, encouraged, valued, and celebrated.”
“As a third-time mom, managing three tiny humans and their needs and activities, I am so grateful for my huge network of other moms and parents.”

How to build a mom crew:
Get out of the house and get comfortable going out with your baby
If you are too shy to talk to the other moms, have your child do it! See who your child gravitates toward and initiate conversation.
If you vibe with a fellow mom, ask her for her number. It is important to do it the first time!
To build genuine friendships, move on from small talk and talk about real-life stuff.
Don’t be a gossip. Don’t share other people’s personal business.
Do other activities that don’t relate to your kids. Go out with your new mom friends.
