Coming across a lot of amusing and shocking comments people say to new mums, I could not resist writing a post about it!
So, I asked you, new mums: “what are the most ridiculous things people told you?”
I admit, I thought I had heard all of the really “bad” ones before. But while talking to you, I was still taken aback at moments and didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. ??
I am sure this list does not cover all of the ridiculous things a new mother ever came across, but let’s take a look at the most “popular” ones.
“You are so tiny, you don’t look pregnant at all.”
“You had a c-section? Oh, I’m sorry.”
To a crying baby: “She’s not happy, is she?”
“You should try to enjoy the birth as it goes so quickly.”
