    Default Visitors after you have a baby...

    Does anyone hate having visitors after you have a baby? I do. I know it sounds awful, but i'm busy enough with the other kids without having to entertain. I guess I can't stand it when people you haven't seen/heard of for the last year suddenly want to ''visit''.. Ok, I get they want to meet the baby, but seriously, if they haven't bothered all year, I wish they wouldn't at all or wait another year, no rush... lol. Or when people just come over and sit and sit and sit whilst their kids turn your whole house upside down. aargh.

    Default Visitors after you have a baby...

    My bubs Is due in April n I've told people I don't want visitors until atleast 2wks after birth. My DP parents were planning on coming over near my due date (all our families live in SA, we in QLD) I love that they're excited but I don't want to be surrounded by ppl - this is our first bub and I want time to bond without child and get use to it. Also cause we live in a dif state I know some ppl will just want to stay in our house - selfish but I want the house to be my space to go to If need.

    So I totally get what you mean - I don't want ppl who havnt seen me or DP recently to just resurface because of the baby

    I'm sure the end of January and I agree.
    I want my house to be my space.
    We don't have people visit much now. That will not be changing.
    I'm going to keep the door locks and act like I'm not home if people turn up.
    But unlike pp I'm going for 4 weeks not 2.
    My bubs are always great at getting sick when that young.
    For those I can't avoid like MIL, she has keys as they are our land Lord, I am putting up a list of things they can do while visiting.
    See if they come over more than once a week!

    I'm worried that DH will tell his family they can come and stay. When I bring bub home, I want a chance to settle in with our newest addition, not entertain guests and worry about being judged.

    Default Re: Visitors after you have a baby...

    I am going to post something on Fb about visitors. We have a tiny house and adding extra people in just to visit doesn't always work. I will be telling everyone that we need plenty of notice if they would like to visit and will not be allowing them to visit at problem times e.g. DS naptime or close to dinner.

    I can't stand the thought of people visiting me to meet the new baby that haven't bothered to catch up during the pregnancy either..
