Carrie Bickmore on there being an instruction manual for babies

She welcomed her third child, daughter Adelaide, in December last year.

And in a column penned for Sunday’s Stellar magazine, a baffled Carrie Bickmore said there needs to be a postpartum instruction manual.

‘How can there not be one for babies?’ the 38-year-old asked.

Referencing an online post titled ‘Postpartum instructions from 1968’ that she’d come across, Carrie began: ‘If only the advice we got these days was so straightforward.

‘It baffles me that, given how many babies are born around the world every day, there is still no instruction manual.’

Carrie listed the different types of manuals we use on a daily basis: ‘There’s a manual for my car, my TV, even for my bedside lamp… How can there not be one for babies?’   

Along with Adelaide, Carrie is also a mother to daughter Evie, four, that she shares with partner Chris Walker.

Chris has also taken on a stepfather role to Carrie’s son Oliver, 11, from her previous marriage to her late husband Greg Lange.   

Speaking to body+soul in April, Carrie said she doesn’t strive for perfection as a mother.

‘I don’t think life is ever perfectly in balance, that’s OK,’ Carrie said. ‘I don’t think we should aspire to have perfect lives – the joy is in the imperfection.’  

‘Some days my home life takes more of my time and energy, so my work life takes a back seat; other weeks I have a crazy work schedule, so my house becomes a mess and we eat more take-away,’ she added.
