‘I suffered traumatic birth – but all my family do is moan about baby’s name’

A baby’s arrival oftentimes gathers loved ones together for support.

Birth is no easy feat, and one certainly counts the blessings of having family and friends who present as a pillar of strength during early parenthood. However, a woman recounts her family being more troublesome than supportive after she gave birth three days ago — all due to complaints about her son’s name.

The mother revealed that her son was born via an emergency C-section at 36 and a half weeks and has been in the NICU since his birth. Rather than providing restful respite or practical assistance, her family incessantly agitate her about her little boy’s name.

Through a Reddit post, the mother shared how she and her husband decided to name their baby Frost, a name imbued with significant meanings that aligns with her pregnancy journey as well.

She expressed: “Since announcing my son’s birth, my family has made it pretty clear how much they do not like his unique name. My husband and I have stated how the name has multiple meanings for us and that we chose the name because it is a strong name.

“We also explained that because my pregnancy was high-risk and we all went through a lot, we really wanted him to have a name that showed just how strong he is. But it’s been three days and my family has not stopped complaining about the name and telling us to change it for fear of him being bullied or hating it later in life.”

The mum continued, expressing her distress, adding: “My mental health is struggling with all this negativity”, especially given her son’s current stay in the NICU. She lamented: “It just feels so pointless at this point and it’s just so upsetting since this is meant to be a time for celebration.”

Online commenters showed empathy towards the mother’s situation, though many highlighted that her baby’s name, Frost, is certainly unconventional and might attract criticism or judgement.

One commenter remarked: “I’m usually one for unique names but Frost is definitely going to lead to some teasing and bullying throughout his entire life.” While another advised: “Oh lord, you set up that kid for a life time of bullying. Listen to your family and change his name.”

Another person offered a gentler perspective, writing: “I haven’t read all the comments and I’m not sure if anyone has already said this but I hope that whatever you call your son, he’s all right and gets out of the NICU.”
