Mom-To-Be Shares a ‘List of Rules’ People Have To Follow When Meeting Her Baby

Maisie Crompton is a 20-year-old mom-to-be that expects her first child, and she came up with eight simple rules for meeting the baby after it’s born.
She shared all the rules in a now-viral TikTok video which has been viewed almost a million times, and got thousands of comments from fellow parents.

Although some of the rules initially seem like common courtesy, but we all break them from time to time – so it’s nice to have them written down. This is why it’s crucial to establish firm and clear boundaries from the very beginning – even if that means potentially upsetting some people.

Check out the rules for yourself:

@maisie_crompton Seen so many of these videos… here’s my “rules for when I have a baby” ✍🏻👶🏻#pregnancyjourney #rulesformybaby #trending #mumsunder21 ♬ original sound – Maisie

Here are the rules again:

  1. Please don’t kiss the baby.
  2. No unannounced visitors, for the first few days we want it just to be us.
  3. Don’t announce our baby has arrived until we do (on social media or in person).
  4. No photos posted of the baby until we do.
  5. Do not come if you’re sick.
  6. Wash your hands before holding them.
  7. Do not ask to see the baby if you haven’t checked up on me during the pregnancy.
  8. If our baby cries please hand them back to me or their dad.

Although some people were skeptical about Crompton’s list, wondering if people would actually adhere to her rules, most of them commended her for writing down the rules.
