Mom Shaming is real. According to research conducted by the baby food company, Beech-Nut, more than 80 percent of moms have experienced shaming in some way. This shaming is most often coming from other moms. Mom shaming usually occurs when mothers criticize another mother for making choices different than they would make. Parenting is hard enough without the nonsense. Having to endure others’ criticism, judgment, and beliefs is unfair to moms. Moms are shamed for everything and anything: using a microwave, mother’s age at delivery, mother’s sexual orientation, marital status, birth plan, processed or whole food, vaccinating, breastfeeding, sleep routine, staying at home or going back to work, and more. Moms are criticized from the moment their pregnancy is announced. Someone somewhere always has an opinion, a challenge, and a better way of doing things.
