Cheree’s had her fair share of hearing horror stories from other parents, and she’s learned not to listen and remember how well she’s doing.
Highlights from Cheree’s vlog about not listening to horror stories from other parents:
‘She does cry sometimes but you know every baby is different…’

Firstly, don’t listen to these horror stories that other mums tell you. Or other people who tell you like ‘ah, your baby is going to have colic, your baby’s gonna have this, your baby’s gonna wake up every minute because you are a teenager you won’t be able to handle it’. At the end of the day, it’s not exactly a hardship, it’s not a negative thing, it’s a positive thing. If you embrace it and if you decide and you are fully 100% sure you want to do this, you’ll be fine, you’ll be absolutely fine. My baby’s absolutely amazing. She doesn’t cry. Well, she does cry sometimes but you know every baby is different.
So if a mum’s saying ‘oh, my baby had constipation all the time,’ or ‘my baby had colic all the time’, or ‘my baby threw up all the time’, it’s really unlikely your baby will go through it. And if he or she does, you will be able to handle it.
You both don’t know anything about being a mother yet. It’s a new learning curve. And you’ll both hopefully be happy about everything and learn and grow and develop with your baby.
