Have you ever judged other moms? Of course you have, we all have! We’ve judged them based on whether they breast or bottle feed, whether they let their kids cry it out or let them co-sleep, whether they practice attachment parenting, how they choose to dress their children, whether they go back to work or stay home – we judge moms on just about everything, and if you say you’ve never judged another parent I refuse to believe you.
While I don’t think this video, a short documentary put out by award-winning director Cynthia Wade and Similac® that’s titled #EndMommyWars will actually end anything, I think for those people who take the 7 minutes to watch will maybe have a new appreciation for their fellow mom.
The video follows 7 different new moms and what they experience in a day, whether it’s have to return to work and leave your kids at daycare and trying to find a private space at work to pump breast milk to formula feeding because breastfeeding didn’t work out, to having 2 kids in 2 years or being a single mom. Every mom’s experience is different and we shouldn’t be so quick to judge because we don’t know their story, nor do we have any right to judge how someone else chooses to raise their child.
Check out the video below and let me know if this changes how you judge other moms?
