Every time I see or hear of a mom attacking another mom, I cringe. We must stop judging. We must stand up and support each other. Being a mom is the toughest job there is. There might be some that are pretty close, but I can’t think of any.
And, here’s the thing, when we are doing that judging, I would bet that 99% of the time, it is because we are uncertain of the decisions we’ve made. We are defensive. We feel like we have to defend ourselves against other moms.
It has to stop. We make our parenting decisions based on what is best for us and our children. Nobody else should come into that decision (okay, maybe dad).
I’m a fan of breastfeeding. I’ve done it and I’m still doing it. They’ve all had a bottle, too.
I get tired of seeing mothers attacking other mothers because of the feeding decisions they make. We are all moms doing the best we can for our children. All of us. No matter how we feed our kids. We are feeding them. They are growing. They are healthy. The most important thing? They are loved.
I asked my friends and readers for pictures of them feeding their children. All ways. All forms. Just feeding. They are all beautiful. They are all wonderful. They are all perfect. They are all loved.
I might be late on the “mom enough” band wagon, but we are all mom enough. Every.Single.One!
So, when you are sitting there thinking about the choices you are making, just remember that you are making it for you and your child. And you are awesome!
