Does Cafemom ever make you feel like your a bad mom?

Before I got on here I thought I was a good mom. But now I read I am a bad mom bc I used formula, vaccinate, let my kid cry sometimes. We sometimes eat at McDonald's. I love my little boy than anything but sometimes I feel like I am the worst mom ever!

  • Nope, because I know I am doing what I feel is right for my child. No one has the right to make you feel like a bad mother, except you for letting them. STOP letting some of the moms on this site make you feel bad for your decisions. If your son is happy, healthy, etc then you are doing yoir job as a parent and have nothing to worry about. NO ONE is a perfect parent and those that act like it are delusional.

  • Ignore these self righteous, high and mighty, holier than thou mothers . . they all think that they are the best mothers that ever walked the earth and that their way is the only way. I pay no attention to these fools.

  • Nope, makes me feel pretty damn good! (And I formula-fed, I vax, I let my kids CIO at an appropriate age - all the typical "bad mommy" stuff!). Don't let random stuff get to you. If your kids are happy & healthy, then you're a good mommy!

  • you are the best mom for your kids

  • You have the power to not allow them to make you feel that way. Make decisions that you think is right for your life. They can make decisions for their own life. They are strangers to you. Do you really base your feelings about yourself on the posts of strangers? You shouldn't. Believe in yourself and in what you choose for your children.
