The Sisterhood of Motherhood: No More Mom Shaming


This post is sponsored by Similac.  I was compensated for this post but all opinions are my own.

 

Whether you are a new mom or an experienced mom, motherhood is hard. There are struggles we all face while raising children, and we need to empower one another instead of putting each other down. Check out this video from Similac that highlights the true Sisterhood of Motherhood:

When I had my oldest son almost 9 years ago, online mom groups were nonexistent. I went to friends and relatives for information and advice. So years later when I had my youngest, online forums were a popular way to meet other moms who were experiencing similar frustrations and joys as yourself.  Thanks to these mom forums, I was able to make some incredible friendships and retain knowledgeable information that has helped me in raising my children.

Moms

However, with access to these types of forums and virtual social sites, I have personally seen moms putting each other down. In fact, mom-shaming has seemed to increase. What’s really upsetting is instead of moms being there for one another and showing compassion, they are being bullies, making topics that could be informational to one another, topics moms don’t want to discuss.

Some of these topics include: [Read more…]

Munchkin LATCH

I am currently breastfeeding my third child. With the first two, I introduced the bottle early on and pumped often to keep an extra supply on hand and allow others to help with feeding them. This time around, I took a different approach. I did introduce a bottle early on, but I’m not pumping nearly as much as I did with my first two, and Charlie has really only used a bottle twice in his 9 weeks of life.

Things are understandably hectic in my house, and while I love nursing on demand exclusively it’s becoming more and more clear that I need to pump and use bottles more often to help me to get more into a routine. Nursing on demand is easy enough, but it’s so hard to keep up with two other children’s routines when baby needs to eat right when I start dinner or get ready to leave to take my oldest to school.
