We hope in reading this you will be inspired to head over to the Similac Facebook Page and share your mommy wars story and how it was resolved. Let’s #EndMommyWars!
If you are a mom then you’ve, sadly, probably been there. That moment of judgement for doing what you think is the right thing for you and your little one. That look from a friend, co-worker or family member that lets you know that they think your parenting style is wrong. It’s an awful feeling and can instantly make you crumble and question yourself as a parent. Am I doing the right thing for my kids? Since I’ve been on the receiving end, I try not to do it in return. Sure, sometimes there is an inner dialogue that runs through my head, but keeping it in check and to myself so I can, rather, provide support is the name of the game. All of us parents are in this together trying to make it work and raise awesome little humans. No judgement needed. Let’s #EndMommyWars together!
Here’s a little video in which I’m sharing one of the most common feelings of judgement I’ve received. It has kept me up at night and had me talking to the pediatrician. At the end of the day though it’s all about what is working for us as a little family team and knowing that as time goes on and kids age, things will shift. What works today might not tomorrow and that’s ok too!
