Join a local Parent and Baby/Toddler Group. Most groups meet weekly. Parent and Baby groups can be an invaluable source of information, a great way to meet other parents and chat about the ups and downs of life with a baby. Its great to be able to talk to other people in the same situation as you because no matter how great your friends are, unless they have a baby themselves, they just aren't all that interested in how baby sleeps or when to wean! Most groups meet weekly. There is over 40 Parent and Baby/Toddler Group in Limerick city and county.
