New mum shares her list of 13 rules when visiting her new baby – including washing hands and helping around the house – is she being a diva?
The guidelines include a change of clothes after smoking, no visiting if you have been unwell, no kissing or touching mouth, only visit if invited and even help out with housework in return for cuddles with the infant.
But the expectant mother has been mocked by other Mumsnet forum users, who joked that she wouldn’t get many visitors if she enforced the rules.
One said: ‘Is this for real? I doubt you’ll get any visitors at all if you issue that list of rules! Or is that the idea…? Ah, very clever OP. Keep the in-laws away, eh?’
‘Haha this has made me smile! I don’t think you’ll have many visitors,’ another posted.
A third said: ‘This can’t be real No one is this ridiculous.’
‘I guess these rules are yours. Try to relax a bit though if you can.’
A third said: ‘I sort of get where you are coming from with some of the rules, but I think it’s a bit excessive. If anyone does anything that bothers you, just ask/ tell them to stop doing it.’
The post has since been deleted.
Do you think they are reasonable expectations?
