Top 10 Cards For New Parents
Ah yes, the obligatory congratulations card for a new baby.
It can be hard to know what to say to a new parent who is setting out on this daunting, never-ending but ultimately rewarding adventure, especially if you’re not a parent yourself.
Parenthood can be stressful, especially with a new baby. When they’re not elbows-deep in mucky nappies and 2 am feeds, they’ll be in desperate need of some comic relief.
So, we’ve created a list of the funniest new born cards to send to those eager new parents. Remember fun?
1. It’s going to learn to swear – Funny new baby card
And we’re going to teach it. Muahahaha. Also, LOVE the use of ‘it’ here. Not only are we avoiding mis-gendering your sprog, but we’re also showing flagrant disregard for learning ‘its’ name. Ha. Probably something stupid, anyway.
2. Squeezing a watermelon out
‘Cause the hole is your vagina and the melon is your baby’s head!
What better way to congratulate a new mother than by reminding them of the pain a trauma of childbirth? In all fairness, if that’s accurate… it is pretty impressive. I bet you tore from V to A!
Why are you getting upset? It’s nothing a few stitches can’t fix. Here, have a glass of wine, you’ve earned it.
3. Try not to make the same mistake again – Condom card
This fantastic gag-card has aractical use! It features a REAL condom! Because who the hell would pro-create intentionally, right? Perfect if you’re the ‘kinda-joking-but-not-really’ friend, which we all are, deep down.
4. 9 Months Sober – Funny new parent card
Providing they took the doctor’s advice and abstained from alcohol for 9 months, this is a fun, tongue-in-cheek greeting card to send your newly responsible friend.
I they didn’t… well, as long as the baby is healthy and doing fine.
I’m no grass.
5. Yay a gorgeous baby – Unique new baby card
Now your new-parent friends can act morally superior in public by wielding this badge of honour displaying the fact that they are tired due to their own life choices.
Remember this lady? Now your friend doesn’t need to become a viral sensation in order to bully her way to the front of the Starbucks queue! Hurrah!
6. Bottoms Up – Humorous new parent card
Haha! Remember fun?
Remember going out drinking and not having to pay for a babysitter/limit yourself to two drinks because of your screeching, 4 am wake-up call?
They didn’t have a card that said ‘Congrats on the new baby, guess that’s it for hanging out’ so I got you this instead.
Don’t worry! It’s only for 18 years… ish.
7. Some babies are proper ugly – Rude new baby card
Who said ,“comparison is the thief of joy?” Oh right, Theodore Roosevelt. Well ,that was 27K well spent.
It’s a fact that most crotch-goblins plop out looking like wrinkly, undercooked sausages. But some aren’t that bad. Not theirs, anyway.
If you can’t quite bring yourself to compliment your friend’s new baby, meet them halfway with this sassy offering.
8. Have fun with that – Funny greetings card
But wait! There’s more! If icky, green baby diarrhoea isn’t their thing, don’t worry. There will be a whole host of bodily fluids for your friend to deal with from their ‘bundle of joy’ .
This upbeat card features one of the most prevalent – baby spew.
9. Condolences to your vagina – Rude new parent card
And as if they don’t have enough to worry about with a new baby – let’s remind them of the wreckage and devastation left behind by their bundle of joy – because that’s what friends do.
Sex will be off the cards for at least three months, you tell them. What? It’s not like you have time for it now, anyway.
But when you do manage to snag a 10-minute-silent-stander-upper in the garage, remember to use that condom I gave you.
No, I can’t babysit.
10. Shit got real – Rude new baby card
And by ‘shit’ I mean literal shit. Literal shit that you’ll be cleaning up for their arse, up their back, on your table… pretty much everywhere, really.
Good luck, loser.
