Q&A: Staying in touch with friends after baby?

I have to devote so much time to my family now that I’m afraid I’ll lose all my friends -- especially the ones without kids. I simply don’t have time for them right now. How can I let them know I’m not gone forever?

It can be very difficult to maintain friendships when you’re busy. Things can be made even more difficult when you’re in different phases of life. If you’d like to connect with your friends, simply be honest with them and explain your situation. Tell them that you want to keep in touch as best you can, and try to find new, easier ways to maintain contact, like email. If possible, try to schedule some friend time far in advance when you think you’ll be able to make it. Then you can establish regular times on a monthly or weekly basis when you can go out, or simply call friends to check in. Just be honest with yourself and with your friends regarding your needs and how you can best work to keep in touch.

I hate to say this, but the way I keep in touch with my friends is through myspace and texting. I can send them messages and read their replies when I have time. When my DS is taking a nap I take the time to email and text some old friends.

Q&A: Staying in touch with friends after baby?

I've had this issue too, especially since as a working mom, I want to spend as much of my free time as I can with my son and husband. I try to keep up via email and I do lots of phone calls in the car on the way home from work to keep up with "gossip" and let my friends know I'm still around. I also do lots of lunches during work with "the girls". Instead of going to happy hour, I do brunch on sunday with girlfiends and maybe follow with a little shipping, and bring my son. I also try not to overload with baby talk. It's different, but it helps transition the friendships without losing them.

Q&A: Staying in touch with friends after baby?

My friend (with no children) is getting married in 6 months and recently decided to kick me out of her wedding party. I was pregnant when she asked me. I'm not sure why this happened the first time I left the baby, was with her. And I made time every week to hangout with her. She said that she doesnt see me anymore. I hate that ppl don't understand how busy your life is now with a newborn.
