Not all parents are perfect. Sometimes they hear different information from different family members and friends about what there baby should be doing, or they should be taking care of it and they decide to come on here and ask for more opinions.

Some women havent been around babies before they had there own and didnt realize that a baby is going to want to be held every minute of the day and how hard that is going to be when they are going on 3 hours of sleep. Sometimes becomeing a parent is a learning process and when a women comes on here to ask a question so that she can become a better mother, is it really necessary for you to make her feel like she is the biggest idiot and worst mother around?

  • You're absolutely right. I saw the post (I think) that you are referring to, and some of the answers were pretty craptastic. No one is perfect, we all do the best we can. It sucks that some people feel the need to put others down.

  • Bumped you! You go girlfriend!! Well said too! I for one had NO clue! I never even babysat a child or changed a diaper prior to having my own. Family would come to visit like La De Da and leave without so much as putting their own glass in the sink!

  • i usually say
    " a worried mom is a good mom"
    "all moms worry"

    so if it is a simple silly question, it is not a dumb question, just a mom worried question
