Friendships and Children

When Friendships Evolve After Baby

Make new friends, but keep the old . . . The friendship philosophy of the Girl Scouts might work on the playground, but isn't always the case when a baby enters the picture. When one friend enters the next stage of her life, others may feel left behind. On last night's episode of How I Met Your Mother, Robin began withdrawing from a trying to conceive Lily after growing apart from her childhood best friend (and "Space Teens" costar!) when the latter became a mother. Did your pre-baby friendships remain the same after your lil one arrived?

I lost one friend after my baby arrived. She was actually supposed to be my best friend and it hurts very much that she doesn't find me exciting enough anymore. Other than that I've been very surprised how my friends who don't have kids are very supportive and understanding. Not much has changed with them. I just gained a few new mommy friends as well.
