When most of us imagine the holidays with a newborn, there are lots of sparkly lights, cozy cuddles by the Christmas tree, and counting your blessings every four minutes for the new bundle that has arrived this season. But in actuality, real life as a new mom doesn't always line up with that vision. If your first holidays as a new mom are shaping up to be a little lumpy, you're not alone, and we have these new moms of Twitter to thank for reminding us of that with these hilarious holiday tweets for new moms.
Reality as a new mom, in fact, looks more like this: wondering why you're buying presents for a baby who has no idea what's going on, breastfeeding several times late at night and in the early morning while reluctantly filling stockings, and melting into an emotional puddle at yet another Lifetime movie. Whether you're pumping during a power outage or scrambling to replace the holiday pajamas that are way too small for your unexpectedly giant newborn, rest assured you are in good company.
And while Twitter can be a source of stress for many, these new moms are hilariously using the platform to take the edge off with their totally candid and hilarious tweets that sum up the holidays as a new mom. Read 'em and weep — with laughter.
