7 things you should never say to a new mum

Becoming a new mum is hectic, stressful and tiring enough, so when we hear these 7 no-nos, it’s game over!

“You’re going to let them eat that?” Yes, we are. And we do actually know already that it “isn’t organic”, but we do not need the food police right now.

“Wow, you look absolutely wrecked!/Did you get any sleep last night?” No. We didn’t. We have a newborn. Pretty obvious. We look knackered, we know.

“Do you work?” No explanation needed here really, when we do TROJAN work everyday!

“That dress is so flattering on your shape!” Thank you for pointing out to me that my body (which just produced a child fyi)  is not the same pre children. Just the kind of perk we needed today!

“With my children I *insert useless comparison*” Just.No…..Ever.

“You definitely have a lot on your plate!” Yes, we KNOW we do. We know our kids may be a little unruly and we know sometimes it shows, but we’re doing our best!

“Those clothes look so comfy!”….Oh god…
