5 Somewhat Nasty Things Only Mom’s Will Do
Having babies is such a blessing, we carry them for up to 10 months all the while gaining stretch marks and cravings for foods we would have never thought to put together before. Pickles and ice cream? My sister loved that while she was pregnant with her first born. For me my cravings were different with each baby, with my 3rd baby I had to have 2 bowls of Cheerios in the morning. Along with the beautiful incentives us mothers receive while taking care of our babies there are just some things only a mom will do, here are somewhat nasty things that only moms would do.
1.) Butt Checks
Only moms will check their little one’s bottoms to see if they have made a poo poo. Could you imagine doing that to an adult? Awkward! As a mother of 4 I’ve found this to be the most interesting and true fact about moms, I always think its funny when someone without kids cringes at my Butt Check’s.
2.) Spit Wipe ( Wiping foods off of kid’s faces with your spit!)
Has your mom ever wipes something off your face with her own spit? EWW Right! But when your a mom and there are NO WIPES available and you notice that little bit of apple sauce from snack time, the quickest and easiest thing to do is use what nature gave you. Is this sanitary? Probably not? OK totally not sanitary but very effective when your in a hurry.
3.) Wear Spit Up
Its normal, babies spit up and mom’s deal with it. Some moms are not so lucky at getting every spot or have the luxury of changing their clothes in the super market. A trick I’ve found to work AMAZING on spit up messes is using wipes to clean up the mess. Something inside of the wipes is magic with spit up where it takes away the odor and the mess while only leaving a wet spot as a trace of what was.
4.) Nursing in Public
Since man was born us humans and animals alike have relied on our mother’s milk for nourishment in our early years. When mothers decide to go natural and breastfeed over using formula it can be a little bit messy and annoying at times. When we are not in the comfort of our homes and out in stores and restaurants, us BF (Breast Feeding) Moms are subject to questionable stares and comments. When I’m in public I always have onlookers who either praise me for my actions or whisper how wrong it is to do it in public. Is breastfeeding healthy? Of Course! Is it annoying and awkward at times? Yes! Using nursing covers or blankets are among the choices we have to nurse or babies, while some mothers take the more natural route and open breast feed.

5.) Drool Face
What baby in the world doesn’t drool? If you can find one, count that mother lucky! With teeth comes drool, which means many moms are subject to oh so slimey shirts, cheeks, arms, hair?! Yeah it gets everywhere.
