New Mom: Facebook groups to follow

 

“Congratulations! You are blessed with a girl/boy.”

Those 9 months of morning sickness, backaches, cravings, leg cramping and don’t know what all; have finally been worth it and you have this beautiful soul lying right next to you..now what??!!
If you recently have had a baby, you will know what am I talking about. New mommies (specially the first-timers) usually feel lost as so many things start happening instantly with a bunch full of advises where you don’t know which one to follow and which one to not to.
Being a mother myself, I feel every baby and every mother is different..whatever works on one baby might not work with the other one but it’s always good to have an ear around; talk to someone with a similar experience and A and I, both have had a very good experience with some of the facebook groups where you can share your experiences and other mommies help you out.

The Fussy Baby Site Support Group

Members: 18,426

This is the official support group of The Fussy Baby Site (http://www.thefussybabysite.com/). This is a safe place for parents of fussy, colicky, high need or ‘spirited’ babies or kids to come for support, to ask questions, or just to commiserate.

Breastfeeding Mamas

Members: 24,629

All your breastfeeding questions are answered here. This one is a BIG support to all of your nursing queries.
“Our mission of the group is to help mothers worldwide to breastfeed through mother-to-mother support, encouragement, information, and education, and to promote a better understanding of breastfeeding as an important element in the healthy development of the baby and mother.”

Respectful Sleep Training/Learning

Members: 77,848

This group is for support with sleep training. “Sleep training” is getting your child into the habit of falling asleep independently; that is, without any kind of help from you.ย 
This group is a safe haven from shaming and fear-mongering surrounding sleep training. The group support each other in listening to children, respecting their needs and members’, allowing and hearing their emotions, and trusting their capabilities.

I recommend to go through their Files section which is extremely useful before you decide to sleep train.

Brown Mommies Unite

Members: 57,526

This group is for young South Asian moms all over the globe to help one another and share stories of being a mother to their beloved children. Members can openly ask mommy and child related questions without feeling intimidated. No question is silly, stupid, or will be judged. This is a place to share, vent, brag, ask, and laugh!ย 

This group shares everything from dadi maa’s desi nuskhas to paediatric’s advise in a friendly way.

Apart from these groups, I swear by the website Babycenter. I strongly recommend subscribing to the website as they keep on sending emails regarding the milestones, activities etc according to your baby’s age.

“There is no way to be a perfect mother..but a million ways to be a good one!”
Happy motherhood!!

  1. Great list! I don’t think many moms even think of this amazing resource right away! I joined most off the “Littles” groups on Facebook (Feeding the Littles, Nursing the Littles, Expecting the Littles, Bringing up the Littles), and another super important but (surprisingly unaffiliated with the others) group Carseats for the Littles!

  2. This is so helpful, I really mean it! Iโ€™m not becoming a mommy by the way :), but my auntie is, so Iโ€™ll surely show her this post and let her decide which groups to join! Thanks for such informative article!
