Pregnancy is the time when the whole world decides to dump all its collective wisdom onto you, whether you want it or not. And some of that is downright bizzare. But compared to the things that you are expected to do as a new parent, listening to all that advice seems a saner option. I have put together a list of funny/weird things that new parents, specifically moms do.
I am sure you will be nodding your head vigorously to this list if you have gone through pregnancy and childbirth. As weird as they may be, we have done all of these funny things as new moms.
