BEING a first-time parent is hard enough.
But when Charli had her baby daughter, she had to deal with the added pressure of being mum shamed for the rules she put in place after her little girl's birth.
She took to TikTok to share a video explaining the "rules I was shamed for as a new mum".
Holding her baby girl, she then listed the rules, beginning with "making people wash their hands before touching her".
"Letting her nap in my arms," she continued.
"Not having visitors in the first few days," was another of Charli's rules, followed by: "Not allowing anyone to kiss her face".
