    Default 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.

    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
