4 Things Never to Say to a New Mom

0 3782

New moms are like wolves–they’ll do anything to protect their pack. Those fangs will come out if you so much as look at them or their new baby with a harsh glance. Here are a few things you should never–and I am deadly serious–say to a new mom. Heed my advice and you’ll be fine. 

 

1. “When’s the baby due?”

While harmless when the woman is pregnant, asking her when the baby is due in relation to her post-baby weight is enough to merit her kicking you between the legs. Right in the baby maker.

 

2. “He/She is so tiny/huge!”

Just don’t. If the child is one extreme or another in size, it is more than likely already a sensitive topic.

 

3. “You look tired!”

4. “Did you want a girl/boy?”

Asking them if the gender of the baby they did have is what they originally wanted is ridiculous. What do you think they’ll say? We had a girl, but we really wish we had a boy. I mean honestly.
