New Mom Wants to Ban Visitors for a Month and Apparently That’s Not OK
I full agree with the poster suggesting that they not even tell anyone the baby is home.
Again, wanting quiet bonding time as a new family shouldn’t be a bad thing. People mean well, but lots of times, their offers to “help” end up being really unhelpful. The last thing you want to do is burden an already overburdened new parent.
Of course, since this is the internet, some people were in disagreement with the no visitors request.
Yes, obviously. Because every new mom is concerned with reaffirming OTHER PEOPLE’S LIVES.
Delivery services also bring gifts. They’ll leave it right on the porch and not even ring the bell, imagine that.
Oh, ok. I didn’t realize we have these things and commit to raising them forever for other people. Good to know.
Listen, folks. When a new mom tells you to stay away, just stay away. In fact, don’t even make her tell you! Don’t ask when you can come see the baby. Ask what she needs, and how you can help. Wait to be invited! And when you do come over, don’t you dare let her get up from the couch.
