A mum-to-be has been mocked online for enforcing an extremely strict set of rules ahead of her new bub's arrival.
Mumsnet user Frenchwolf86 came under fire on the parenting site after revealing the thirteen rules she expects all visitors to follow when they come to meet her newborn baby.
The set of guidelines includes a change of clothes after smoking and helping out with the housework in return to hold the infant.
But the expectant mother has been mocked by other Mumsnet users, who joked that she wouldn't get many visitors if she enforced the rules.
The mumsnet user started the heated discussion by asking fellow mothers if she was being unreasonable for imposing these rules.
She explained that she wants prospective visitors to be extra clean, which means washing their hands every time they hold the baby and no visiting if they've recently been ill.
The mum-to-be also stipulated that feeding time is private, the baby can only sleep in her crib and she cannot be posted about on social media.
But perhaps the most extreme rule on the list was her request that visitors help with the housework if they come to spend time with the baby.
Fellow users of the parenting site couldn't help but laugh at the list of demands.
One said: 'Is this for real? I doubt you'll get any visitors at all if you issue that list of rules! Or is that the idea...? Ah, very clever OP. Keep the in-laws away, eh?'
'Haha this has made me smile! I don’t think you’ll have many visitors,' another posted.
A third said: 'This can't be real No one is this ridiculous.'
However, some mothers were sympathetic.
One posted: 'I would have thought that that was all common sense when you visit a new born?'
'Are you feeling quite anxious op? I was terrified before ds [darling son] was born and everybody has their way of trying to alleviate the stress,' another wrote.
'I sort of get where you are coming from with some of the rules, but I think it's a bit excessive. If anyone does anything that bothers you, just ask/tell them to stop doing it,' a third said.
