New moms have enough to worry about without other adults bothering them, but of course they find a way.
One woman wrote to Reddit asking if it's okay to be peeved at other adults who call her "mama" after she gave birth. As if she doesn't have enough to worry about!
I am a new mum - I have a 6 week old and I have noticed a few people have started not calling me by my name and calling me “Mama” instead.
I don’t know why but I kind of find it insulting. Yes, I am my son’s mother but I’m not yours. I am still me. I still have a name and an identity other than being a mum. I have a career, a social life and am not bound to being just a mum as I do a lot of other things. Being a mum doesn’t define me. In saying that I do love my son more than anything in the world.
