😭 Husband fell asleep and dropped baby

Let me start by saying our baby girl is perfectly fine and has no injuries. I woke up in the middle of the night to a horrible thud sound that felt as loud as a gunshot to find my husband picking our 6wk old daughter off the ground. He had fallen asleep while trying to console her and she rolled out of his arms from...

Sister in law thinks I'm not affectionate with my baby

I just got told by sil that I'm not affectionate enough with my bubba, and that's why my bubba doesn't "give kisses" 🙄 she says her 8 year old was giving kisses by the time she was 6 months. For the record, she doesn't live with us, and I am constantly giving my 14 month old hugs and kisses. Why dis people say shit…

Easy, healthy, mom-able snacks? What are we surviving on?

I’m sure I’m not the only one who doesn’t get more than a 5 minutes to grab food AND eat it. I need some healthy, easy, quick to prep AND eat snacks. I’m living off of microwave chicken nuggets, Alani protein shakes and one-bite-at-time cold left overs from the fridge. I had lactation bites but they made my son su...

Food Thief 😹

So I made some Dino nuggets as a quick snack because my daughter was hungry, and I made a few extra for my fiancé and me… turns out nobody is allowed to eat them except my daughter, she slowly took them off our plates and placed them on hers to not be eaten 😹

Exhausted

Anyone else so exhausted they are struggling to enjoy motherhood? My little one is up multiple times in the night (approximately 5 times a night). Each morning I am so exhausted I feel like I’ve not slept at all. Because I’m so exhausted I have no motivation to engage or do fun things with my little boy and I feel s...

Weetabix

How much Weetabix can a 7 month old have? I alternate Weetabix and porridge everyday, so far I've only been offering half a Weetabix but he demolishes it. Can he have a whole Weetabix or should I stick to half and some fruit purée? I've searched online and the NHS advice only says they can eat it from 6 months, it...

Cheating

My MiL believes that if a man cheats , it's because the women is lacking. She's saying that if her husband cheats , it's on her. I'm like wtf. Yet on the other hand if my hubby cheats on me she will kick him out and I stay. My MIL says that she doesn't gossip or judge about what she knows but she does! Lol On anothe...

Extreme mum guilt

Need to rant/get this off my chest because I feel like the world’s worst mum. I love my little boy more than life itself and I still can’t believe I’m blessed to be his mum but lately I find myself so frustrated by things he does which leads me to snap at him - but I know he’s a baby and knows no better. I’m sure it...

My partner is doing some work at someone’s house tomorrow but I’ve just had a call off the doctor to ask me to go in tomorrow for a check up… We have no family where we live and it’s too short notice to put her into nursery for an hour or so.

Feeling inadequate

I do all the cooking (unless it's grilling, hubby does that), all the cleaning, take the kids to their appointments, playing with them, etc. You all know, the typical stay at home stuff. But for some reason, even though there are days I struggle to even get the basics done, I feel like I should be doing more than I ...
