How many of these ‘Mummy Milestones’ can you tick off?

Got your skinny jeans back on? Check. Didn't talk about your baby's poo all day? Check. Nice work!

Before you had kids, did you ever imagine you’d find yourself talking about another human being’s bowel movements at such an alarming frequency? Or discussing the fact that you’d never get to pee on your own again? Thought not.

But once a baby comes along, these things become par for the course, right?

Bearing this in mind, two mums from Sydney, Australia, have come up with a range of tongue-in-cheek Mum’s Milestone cards, designed for mums to share on social media in a humorous way once they’ve reached certain ‘new mum’ goals.

Here at MFM HQ we were actually a bit divided on these cards – a few of us found them pretty funny, but there were others who thought they were a tad patronising.

Some of us agreed that while we’d totally share the sentiment of the cards on Facebook, we’d use our own words and pics to do it and don’t particularly appreciate a third party doing it for us.

And others confirmed we were actually quite proud of reaching some of the goals mentioned and found these slightly belittling.

Having said that – we ALL agreed that the milestones featured are SO on point.

What do you think?
