Hi, I’m not a single mum but my siblings(6) and I all have different surnames. For my case it’s fine cause none of us seems to be bothered by it. But I think if you’re keen to change to your current husband’s surname, definitely discuss with him and see if he is willing cause I do know of some people who don’t detest the child, but wouldn’t prefer the child bearing his surname if it’s not his blood. :)

My POV is that you can change it now before they starts attending school. That way you can also avoid having to explain the surname difference.

I left it as my own surname. But my other kids often ask me why Korkor got different surname
