**Membership is currently closed. Request membership to be added to the wait list until a space opens up. Our member cap is 150 members and the wait list is currently more than 50. Members who haven't attended in more than 3 months are removed so we can keep our group active.
This is a group for friendly moms with babies born in 2013 & more. Dads are also welcome to join. We meet on weekdays and weekends at local parks, pools, beaches, malls, and other baby friendly locations.
It is a chance for new moms and their babies to make new friends. My goal is to create a close knit group of friends who truly care about each other so we can watch our babies grow up together. We try to schedule 2-3 activities per week so there are always many things to choose from.
1. Be a new or expecting mom (or dad) to a baby born in 2013 or more. If you have older children they are always welcome to join us too. Many of our events take place at parks with playgrounds.
2. Most of the meetups take place in Irvine. You don't have to live in Irvine to join. We would like to see you at least once a month so we can remain a close group. Members who have not attended one event in 3 months will be removed due to inactivity.
3. When you RSVP, you only need to add a +1 if you are bringing a friend. Moms & their babies/kids count as 1 on the RSVP. We understand last minute things come up. You don't need to give an explanation, but please keep your RSVP up to date. This helps us know who to expect and better manage meetups. If you can't attend at the last minute, just leave a comment on the event page or text the event host so we aren't waiting for you. Things happen, but please respect our time. Members with 3+ no shows in a calendar year are removed.
4. The health of our young babies is very important. If your baby is sick, please stay home until he/she is healthy. Please check out our policies on illnesses: http://www.meetup.com/IrvineMoms/messages/boards/thread/42586862#117516452
Once you have joined, please jump right in! We welcome new members and can't wait to meet you!
