Does it feel like none of your friends have children the same age as yours? Or have you been wanting to try the new indoor play space in your neighborhood but all of your friends with kids work?
Are you a working mom who wants to arrange playdates for her children on the weekend, but all of the playgroups in your area meet during the work week?
Are you new to the Baton Rouge area and looking for recommendations for pediatricians, schools, or family-friendly activities in your area?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions (or even if you didn’t), we have exciting news for you! Red Stick Moms Blog is thrilled to introduce our Community Neighborhood Groups. The primary goal of these groups is to connect moms online, as well as offline, through playdates and events. Whether you’re a new mom, new to the city, or just want to meet new friends, our regular meet-ups will be
the perfect way to connect with moms in your area. Also, when you can’t see each other in person, you will have moms right in your Baton Rouge area to answer any questions about businesses and resources in your neck of the woods.
We would love to assign a “Mombassador” for each area to help with coordinating these gatherings because YOU know your neighborhood best! If you are interested in volunteering to be your neighborhood Mombassador, please email [email protected]
We currently have 13 neighborhood groups available to join, along with a few special interest groups (feel free to join more than one – we know that you may live in one area of Baton Rouge and work in yet another). Don’t see your neighborhood? We’re just starting this program and while this doesn’t encompass every single neighborhood, feel free to hop into the one that is closest to you. If the need arises, we can add more in the future. Just click on your area and ask to join the group!
From there, let the fun begin!
Current Baton Rouge Area Neighborhood Groups:

In addition to our Neighborhood groups, we have also added Special Interest groups. We hope these will be positive, open forums to vent, share resources, and meet new friends.
This is a wonderful opportunity for you and your kids to make new friends and connections in our community!
