Why do we do this to ourselves?... and eachother?

The insane expectations and judgment (mostly from each other), is unbelievable. We all feel the same way. The constant competing is so sad and only makes those who judge feel worse about themselves. I am so sick of hearing about if you don't breastfeed, or breastfeed long enough, or get this car seat, or enroll your child in this, or do 15 different activities per day etc, then you are a bad mom. We are all (for the most part) doing the best we can. We need to make ourselves happy to be good mothers, and that is NOT being selfish!

  • I completely agree with you! Everywhere on here, in just about every question there seems to be a debate! Anon's putting anons down, people putting anons down, anons putting people down... it's a constant battle room in here and it seems to only be getting worse!!!
