GIVEAWAY: Rockabye Etiquette: Things You Should Never Say to Non-Parents

Posted by 34 on

Happy Monday, everyone! Aaack, who are we trying to fool, Mondays can be the pits. But worry not for we have a quick remedy: a giveaway! Now that we’re all clear on the things you shouldn’t say to new parents, let’s turn the tables on our Rockabye Baby Etiquette and discuss the things you should never say to non-parents. I’ll start with my list:

nonparents (v2)

1. “Pumping is tricky, you see you’ve gotta . . .” No. Noooo, no, no. Totally cool with breastfeeding, just don’t need to know the mechanics right now 2. “Can you hold this?” (When someone hands you the dirty diaper they just took off their child)Nope, I really can’t. 3. “Do you mind if I bring the baby?” – Sure! Hold on, you do know we’re going to a hot yoga class, right. 4. “Getting peed on isn’t that bad . . . “ Wait,what? 5. “Can you hold him/her for a minute?” – Yes, for a minute, maybe even twenty minutes, but not for an hour and half while you watch Breaking Bad.

Now you tell us . . .

What are things you think you should never say to non-parents?
