Hi there - I'm looking to join an existing new moms/play group in the Albany Park/Lincoln Square area. Does anyone know of one? If one doesn't exist, is anyone from the area interested in starting one? I'm dying to meet other new moms!

I think the Northside Parents Network has a new mom's group. You can check at

Mom to James (ribboncesarean.gif 5/2006), Claire (vbac.gif 6/2008), furry kitties Calvin and Bob, and wife to Dennis.

If you nurse, do you attend the LLL meetings in North Park (on Christiana near Foster)? It's a very active group (or it was when I attended) and welcoming . . .you'll meet plenty of AP mamas from the area!

 2/02, 4/05, 2/07, 11/09, and EDD 12/25/11 wave.gif
