jmjello: topics have included: breastfeeding problems (e.g., a baby's preference for one breast), painful sex, emotions about returning to work, finding good childcare, feelings of vulnerability as a new mom, how to help the babies sleep better, the role of partners (especially during teh night), etc.
In the beginning, we had a topic that each mom included in her check in, such as "how i got pregnant," "my labor experience," "how i picked my baby's name." this helped break the ice and helped us get to know each other. it can take several weeks before a real bond is created, but even from teh beginning i found it helpful to hear what other mom's were doing with their babies, etc. good luck!
