Hello,

I am looking to start a playgroup or find one thats already going on. If anyone knows of one, or is interested in getting one going please let me know. Me and my 2 year old son need to get out and start making friends with some like minded mommys and toddlers..Also would love to start finding out what kind of natural parenting community jackson has going on and get connected!

Thanks

Hi yo yo. I don't know of any groups, sorry, but I sure would like to be able to join one in the area! I'm in Marshall, but Jackson is not that far away from me! Subscribing to see if there's anyone else out there who is interested!

I'm also from Jackson. I have a 5 yr. old, an almost 4 yr old and an 8 month old...all girls. The last playgroup I was a part of fell apart and wasn't very active! I don't know if I'm that natural minded other than a homebirth and wearing my youngest though...I may know another mom through fb that is more natural minded!

Thanks, Elizabeth, for linking me to this!

 

I have a 4 month old son. I cloth diaper, breastfeed, babywear... There might be more I'm not thinking of right now.

 

This would be a great idea. Maybe we could make a facebook group first?

Elizabeth,

Homebirth and baby wearing are pretty natural minded:) I just would like to get a group of moms together that doesnt think homebirth/baby wearing is crazy.Is your friend in jackson too?Where at in Jackson are you?I am over by vandercook.

okay try this let me know if it works?

 

Great glad she forwarded you the link. I was thinking it may be nice to meet up at cascades or some thing like that. Or just see where everyone is at and find a central place to meet, or at peoples houses is always an option.
