  • When is a young mum not so young anymore?

    When do you think a young mum is no longer that???

    Just curious what everyone's opinions are on this.
    I am 25 this wednesday (YIKES! half way to 50!! ) and was wondering, am I still considered as a 'young mum'???

    So what do you consider to be the 'young mum' cut off age?

    i think when your 30 you arent reallly a young mum anymore or when you find you dont have a thing in common with any young mums coz you remember the orginal 80's bands and clothes where as they think the covers ARE the orginals
    but no i dont think your old

      Funny you say that. I have a little group of young mums I chat to and they seem so young to me, maybe I'm aging fast... god I hope not..... but they all seem 16 to me, I really have nothing in common with them other than we are all mothers, they just seem immature to me.
      Maybe I am getting old before my time .

            I think of young mums as those under 25 because that was the cut-off point for funding at the youth agency I used to work at.

                I think 24 and over is not young anymore because my parents were married and had started their family by then

                    When you are over 25 when you have kids, i dont think you are classed as a "young mum" coz thats more the 'norm' these days.

                    Anything below 20 is super young, and 20-25 is still considered young IMO

                    But if you are asking what you are now seeing as you already have your bubbas and are reaching 25.........
                    hmmmm i dunno...... IMO you would have been a young mum having them, but now i dont think you would be classed as one to general passer byers... (sorry)

                    Hey if it makes you feel better, everyone will be a not soo young mum one day... and to make it worse, then you become a not so young grandma

                      I think once you're over 25 you're not a young mum anymore.... but agree that it depends on your maturity level too.... A couple of mums in my June 06 group on here are aroung 22 yo, and I don't even notice! (I'm 30 this year) We're all on the same level which is great. So I reckon I'm still young!

                        I believe government health services, well my local one anyway... classify a young mum as 25 and under... so you would still be an official young mum for another year yet.

                          i never considered myself a young mum, i was 22 when i had dd1, but most of my friends were in their teens, so i was considered old

                              Anyone under 38 is a young mum...

                              Nah, just kidding. There are a couple of hubbers I think of as being young mums and they are under 20.

                              The rest just sort of melt into one big pot for me. I don't take much notice of how old people actually are anyway. Its only if they are really obviously young that I think of it.

                              You're all heaps younger than me anyway, so I don't break it into categories.

                              But Lunar, I have never thought of you as being a "young mum". You would have been with Em, but I didn't know you then. You weren't a young mum with Kailah.

                              Just another old bat really, but at least you're not as old as me.
