Mom receives angry letter from friends fed up with constant Facebook posts about her baby

An Australian mother claims she received an angry letter from a group of friends who apparently asked her to stop with the constant updates and "baby spamming" on social media about her 6-month-old baby.

Jade Ruthven sent the letter to Australian writer Em Rusciano, who shared it on Facebook on Tuesday.

"I have got together with a few of the girls and we are all SO OVER your running commentary of your life and every single thing Addy does."

The letter continues.

"We can't wait for you to get back to work - maybe you won't have time to be on Facebook quite so much."

The friends didn't take out their anger on Addy, though.

"Addy is gorgeous and we all love her, but our kids are great too."

The group of "friends" felt they were speaking for everyone.

"Not everyone is as interested as you are about what Addy does so gives us all a break. We're doing this to let you know what people really think."

While some believe the letter was faked, it brings up an interesting debate about how much is too much on social media. The majority of people responding to the letter on Facebook defend the mother.

    In my opinion that’s just hateful. this mom is proud of her baby! Wants to show him off, share her joy. I feel sorry for the ones that feel it’s unacceptable, to have such hate in their hearts for their friend. if they don’t like it then unfriend her. But instead, they were malicious, purposefully hurt this new mom with words of disgust. They are the sad ones, not the new mom.

    Seems like if her friends don’t like it they should u friend or unfollow her rather than send a snotty rude letter! Sounds like the gal is a first time mother…if there was fB back when my first was born I’d have probably been the same way
