Eyebrows and (shreik!!!) chin hairs plucked, legs shaved very occasionally in summer. Armpit hair trimmed back when it gets a bit unruly, same for genital area with an occasional shave-off-the-sides if I'm doing a lot of swimming...but a new fifties style swimsuit with short-style bottoms has put paid to that.

I used to shave my pits, but stopped about a year ago. Now I think they look weird bald.

I feel the same, pre children I spent hours sorting my self out but just don't have the time now! In the short term maybe going for a wax will make you feel better while you think of all the options. And you will get more time to do these things as your baby gets older. It gets easier to keep on top of things! I hope you manage to get a bit of time to make yourself feel better

Ime mums of tiny babies only look good in OK mag, with a stylist, make up artist, and pots of money and time.
Be kind to yourself smile

whereisshe Mon 24-Feb-14 23:29:56

I have a small baby. I was a yeti until yesterday when I managed to wax my legs and underarms. I'm sure it won't happen again for another few months! Honestly don't beat yourself up about it, there are more important things for you to be doing at the moment.

Puddles1234 Mon 24-Feb-14 23:33:34

rozanamak I had my full body done with laser hair removal. It's quick painless and if you feel any regrowth after your sessions you can have a top up.

Now I'm pregnant I'm so thankful that I had it done I seriously couldn't be bothered to wax or shave.

Shave legs and pits.
Wax eyebrows, lip and chin.
Scissor trim and shave sides of bikini area, but no one sees that area but me. if I meet someone and start fornicating I need to figure something else out for bikini area.

Stubbed Tue 25-Feb-14 01:30:47

I bought an IPL from boots. Changed my life as I'm naturally very hairy no way could I wax or shave everything. Highly recommended. To do legs takes some time but I started with a 3 month old and small areas are v quick.

PastaandCheese Tue 25-Feb-14 06:38:02

I wax eyebrows. Extended bikini wax. Shave armpits and legs.

As a new mum I just concentrated on my eyebrows as they were so visible along with shaving armpits and legs on days when I wanted to wear a dress

A salon eyebrow wax takes minutes so I'd just get DH to walk pram around the block. I also bought a pot of hot wax to keep at home to use in between salon visits.
