Are you baby spamming?

I can't help the baby spam

When my first child was born Twitter was fairly newish as were the new fast smart phones we have today. I did a fair bit of spamming friends and family with cute pictures but fast forward 6 years and how time has changed. Everything is so instant and if you've got the latest phone technology there's a chance that you'll be over sharing as much as I do.

I can't help but want to take that instant snap to share with others. A quick click and relatives in Australia can see the kids as quick as if they were here watching it with me...almost.



But is it all too much?

Well yes and no. For a stay at home or work from home mum like me the temptation is there it constantly be on the share so others can experience my joy. But I do see how it can be too much for others to constantly be spammed with a blow by blow account of little dudes day too.

How do you find the balance?

Well as the kids get older you'll find less chance to update anything! In all seriousness though you'll know what is good for you and your family. Just be conscious of keeping some of those precious moments to yourself. I often send daddy photos that I've not shared elsewhere so that he knows special moments are being shared just with him/our family.


Any tips for the constant baby spammer?

Set up albums on your social media and update there instead of constantly posting to a wall.

Use oversized muslins for a good clear backdrop for baby shots! Your floor may be covered in weaning debris and this can help you cover it while you take a precious snap!


Try doing blocks of snaps. I offered to collages of 4 to get the right focus and often quick succession snaps look better on a wall. Apps like A Beautiful Mess are fab for this!

Make sure you get realistic shots! Not every baby is a poster boy or girl no matter what Instagram tells you. These are the snaps you'll laugh at later on in life!
