11 of the funniest new parent confessions


Bringing home a brand new baby is brilliant, let’s be clear, but it’s not really like it is in the movies.

Not only does new parenthood keep rolling long after the cameras are switched off, it throws up the kind of challenges we were never taught about at school! Gulp.

Luckily, little babies are perfectly designed. They are super adorable and capable of capturing our hearts in record time. That said there are less adorable THINGS we need to talk about, new parenting-wise. Secret thoughts and feelings that mums and dads of newborns were surprisingly quick to confide..!

  1. Parenting is not what we expected



2. We could do with a little help, a lot of the time



3. We sometimes make mistakes



4. We are tired. So very tired.



5. The sacrifices can feel unreasonable at times
