10 Truths about becoming a Mum

30 April 2018

Being a parent is great, I wouldn't change it for the world. It's definitely life changing and whilst most new parents gush about how complete their lives are, here's ten home truths about becoming a Mum.

10 Truths about becoming a Mum

1. You will suddenly develop the strongest bladder ever and the ability to hold in pee for hours whilst your child cries at every attempt you make to sooth them. Then, at the slightest hint of a sneeze it'll give up on you. 

2. There is nothing more satisfying than making your baby burp or fart - you get double points when you manage both 

3. Infacol becomes your best friend, I don't even know if it works but I feel like a boss parent when I whack it out of my bag 

4. You and your partner will say "is he due a feed?" more often than "I love you"  

5. Being stared at whilst dropping a log is your life now 

6. You might say you'll train your baby to self-sooth and leave them to cry but it won't last long because babies cries are the most disgusting sounding things in the world and can't be ignored

7. You'll spend hours convincing yourself it's not wind, it's a smile 

8. Don't think you'll sleep when baby sleeps, you'll spend that time making sure they're breathing 

9. You'll very quickly realise that their necks aren't as fragile as you think, usually when they fling their heads back unexpectedly and they don't fall off 

10. There will be times in the first few weeks when you forget that you have a baby for a split second, usually first thing in the morning or when they're having a good nap and it's only when they make a noise you remember you had them.
