Seeking friendships with mothers with unsettled babies in Narre Warren Lock Rss

Hi my name is Michelle and my little boy is Connor Jack...oh and my Husband is Shaun. We have been experiencing trouble with Connor sleeping - mainly through the day hours now - since he was 5 weeks old. He turned 4 months on Weds this week (30/11/05) and since last Saturday we he has been quite unsettled again gasp( and I'm feeling exhausted once again.

We have been to a day sleep clinic at South Eastern Private (where I gave birth), a respite in Rosebud Hospital followed by a 5 day Baby Mother Unit stay the next week. It was at Hospital that they diagnosed me as having the first stages of PND and put me on a low dose of medication to stop it progressing any further. Connor has improved after these visits but is still quite a handful.

As I am originally from the country and have been living in Melbourne for about 6 years, I have no immediate support around me such as family and life time friends so it would be valuable to find Mothers with young unsettled babies/or older unsettled babies in a similar situation to myself to share, learn and support. It would be good to find people to share the undeniable understanding of what we are going through, with the possibility of meeting for coffee (with sooky bubs), chatting on the phone when we need a shoulder or just exchange messages in this forum.

Looking forward to hearing from you as I'd enjoy finding a group of women to talk about our thoughts and experiences . Don't worry, it won't all be babies and problems. It would also be nice to be able to talk 'adult talk' once in a while, like current affairs etc.. as all I seem to talk about now is 'baby this and baby that'. All the possibilities...
