5 things you should never say to a new mom. EVER.

A new mom has a lot to learn and this can be overwhelming. So here a few things you should never say to a new mom.

Being a new mother is possibly one of the best things in the world, but it is also one of the most difficult. Here are things you should never say to a new mom.

1.I’m also tired because I stayed up late binge watching Game of Thrones.

Until you have a newborn of your own, you really don’t know what tired is.

2. I have a new puppy, so I know what you’re going through.

 A puppy is nothing like a newborn, so don’t even go there.

3.You look very tired.

Thanks for that keen observation. I probably do look tired because I only slept for an hour.

4.You still look pregnant/when are you going to lose all that baby weight?

You’re really not being helpful. I’m learning how to handle a newborn at the moment, so I have enough on my plate. Also, my uterus still needs time to deflate. So there’s that too.

5. Breastfeeding is really important. You are breastfeeding aren’t you?

Some mother’s breastfeed, and others don’t. Now is not the time to jump on a moral bandwagon.
