I'm a 21yr old married first time Mum with a 5 1/2 month old DD. I live in Cheltenham, and would love to chat to new Mum's and find out about their experiences so far.

not a new mum though I would say at the stage you are at now all I could manage was feed baby feed me change nappies do washing and a shower, if I was lucky before 8pm good luck youre doing a good job if you have managed some free time to come online!

Don't get me wrong, I love my kids 5 & 3 3/4
but after being told I could'nt and horrible births and not bonding straight away I can understand how it feels for some mums that find it a chore instead of a joy! though am really loving it now especially since I realised I'm the BOSS!!!!!!!!

Kids don't half put us through it huh? I was really lucky to have a 4.5 hour labour (very painful !!!!! ), and bonded straight away as BF got off to a great start. However I suffered Pre Eclampsia from 34 weeks PG so I was in and out of hospital which really got me down
