Stay at Home Moms

A group for those of us who have the opportunity to stay home and raise our babies. Some of us have been privileged enough to be home before but for others this is their first time out of the workforce and it can be scary.

Thanks for all the great advice!! I will start looking around for things "we" can do outside of the house. Before it turns Winter :-) If I need more info or just need to vent I know I can turn to you ladies! Thanks for the support! I can't wait to meet the little one.

It's definitely a good idea to have a good support system, like people you can talk to when you feel like you're going crazy. I remember when I first stayed home with my first baby, and how lonely I got. Now, with 5 kids I never get lonely anymore! I actually look for time that I can just be by myself in quiet. I think with your first it's a good idea to get out of the house regularly, even if it's just a walk around the block or to the park. Get to know other moms and have people you can call when you get lonely or just need another adult to talk to.

It's def the most rewarding job you will ever have! And probably the hardest at times, but all the hard is worth the wonderful cause there is so much wonderful. At the hard times, and sometimes when things are great, I think of all the moms that wish they could be home with their kids but can't for whatever reason and it reminds me how blessed I am to be able to stay home with them. You will never regret the decision to stay home and raise you baby! And remember we are always here for support, advice or if you just need to talk!

I am a mother of 3 and had a homebirth with my third. I have been lucky enough to stay at home since i gave birth to my first almost 6 yrs ago. It takes a strong person to be able to stay home. But the benefits out weight all the cons. I loved waking up and seeing my babies face every morning and being able to see every mile stone. But you have to be ready to loose some friends. Unfortunatly some people who don't have kids don't understand that you cant just get up and go anymore. Find some friends or even family that you can turn to to discuss any concerns or just if you need to get out of the house so you don't go insane. Don't be afraid to take the baby out. I have taken my kids out since they were about a week old. It wont hurt them and it will do you good to get out of the house. If you need to talk or have any other questions please don't hesitate to ask. Good luck. It is the hardest job you will ever have but it is the most rewarding one also.

Hey Everyone!

I'm currently 34 weeks pregnant. Planning on having a Home Birth. And having my husband be my couch :-) This is our first child. Our plan is that I would be able to stay home and take care of our child. Anyone who is a Stay at Home Mom have any advice for me on what I could be expecting?
Can't wait to hear from you all!

We went to a Hawiian Falls, a water park, yesterday and My 6 yr old son Noah and me are burnt to a crisp, but my husband and my 2 yr old are barely pink. We all used the same sunscreen. Those darned olives tone completion can take so much more sun then us fair-skinned. Oh well, we had fun any ways. Oh and my 2 year old wanted to do all the slides but my 6 yr old was terrified of them, funny huh?

He will def grow out of that pretty fast I think since he does interact with other kids. I'm sure he still gets what he wants by other kinds of communication. Maybe he just a man of few
Toby is very vocal and outgoing around people he knows but shy around new people, but when I think about it I'm that way too, so.

hopefully things will happen fast. he has lots of play dates and usually goes with my hubby and i when we go places. i think he's still attached to his "binky", which he doesn't have anymore..but prolly still feels like he does. hopefully the non-speakin' phase will end soon. he still plays with others and smiles and laughs..just doesn't say awhole lot...but when we get in the car or home he never shuts i guess he just needs to feel more comfortable around others.
