clicky facebook link

I mean, no offence to the mum's coz obviously they're happy with them and that's great! But my word... not my cup of tea

Each to their own

Bit mean to share it on a parenting site, those mums might be on here or know someone who is

Is this for real?! What is the world coming to?

Yeah I mean if you’re going to decorate your frigging hospital bed then you deserve a bit of a ribbing!

Holy shit

Takes FB crap to a whole new level doesn't it?!

JellyBaby666 Fri 29-Mar-19 17:21:10

Wow. What a waste of money!

Also I really, really despise parents that dress up their newborns like an accessory. They are tiny humans ffs, not some thing to parade around in your matching frilly outfits.

When I was screaming with pain and nearly dying I couldn’t give a shiny shit what pattern was on my hospital sheets. Ditto post-birth when I was bleeding like a stuck pig and barely able to move. I certainly didn’t want ANY photos of me considering how terrible I looked after my two day labour, and fancy sheets wouldn’t have made any difference.

The last one in particular was ... interesting. I couldn’t be bothered with the faff of changing my hospital bed sheets personally.

Just. No.

I bled all over my bed several times after giving birth. The nurses discreetly changed the sheets for me and bunged them in the NHS laundry hamper. No way would I want nice bedding on a hospital bed!

The Italy baby outfit is a giant bow... Hope baby was sick on it immediately

Not my taste but I spent 5 nights in after ds1 and the blanket provided was thin and worn so my own cover would have been nice. Not these though.

Mrskeats Fri 29-Mar-19 17:28:52

With teddy on this. Utterly tasteless

Siameasy Fri 29-Mar-19 17:30:58

Eurgh no thanks. Tacky or what

FrancisCrawford Fri 29-Mar-19 17:31:45

Yup, they are ghastly.

No harm in jazzing things up. I'd have loved some bubbles and ducky in the birthing pool.


Prequelle Fri 29-Mar-19 17:37:46

I can't believe how fabulous the mums all look.

Prequelle Fri 29-Mar-19 17:39:52

But yeah I'm not into the baby fashion accessory thing. So tiny and new with that awful bow on!!

gotmychocolateimgood Fri 29-Mar-19 17:41:43

Show me a baby in a plain white babygro any day.

LloydColeandtheCoconuts Fri 29-Mar-19 17:43:19

I didn't even see the newborns until I read a couple of these posts and had another look confused! It's not to my taste and a bit naff but if it floats their boat then good luck to them.

brizzlemint Fri 29-Mar-19 17:44:32

YABVVVU. They might not be to your taste, they aren't to mine taste either, but to post on a busy internet forum for mothers to criticise them is absolutely appalling.

Ohnonotuagain Fri 29-Mar-19 17:45:06

Not my cup of tea at all but as long as it doesn't cause more work for the hospital staff then I'll just laugh to myself and move on.

Remember to buy several sets, nothing ruins the photo opportunity like a bit of blood, vomit or poo. I'm sure the hospital will be only too happy to arrange a personal laundry service so you get to take your own tasteless crap home with you all clean and freshly ironed.
