It's hard being a new mom (or even an experienced mom to a new baby) and sometimes we do things we know we shouldn't, despite what all the experts say. But this is a safe place to share your secrets—we won't tell.

This Week's Secret:

 "When I was pregnant, I feared my pretty house being overrun with baby toys and, sure enough, we got more gifts than I thought we needed. I gave loads of toys away before my son was even born. Now that he's here, I still give his toys away a lot, when I think he has too many. I took back or gave away almost all his Christmas presents because he just doesn't need that many toys. Sometimes I think it makes me a bad mom." —anonymous
