“it's not just texas. women have been attacked for breastfeeding in public all over the US. it's our entire country's delusional perspective on breastfeeding. it's really just sad and embarrasing that a mother doesn't get encouraged and praised for caring for her children in public - regardless of how she chooses to feed them - but instead gets attacked and intimidated.”

“i agree with several previous commenters...i think we live in a time when people don't believe in holding their babies as much as mothers used to. there's growing belief that holding a baby "too much" will spoil them. i'm a firm believer in holding newborns and infants as much as possible! there's no such thing as too much. if theyre not spending hours and hours everyday in a bouncy chair or crib, then their head won't get misshapen. period. I held my son A LOT, as much as either of us wanted, and he has grown into a happy, independent young boy!”

“Same. My second baby is now two months old and both my kids got so much time in parental arms that I'm not sure there was ever much a risk of this! Lots of tummy time, too. My new baby is a good sleeper, too -- loves to sleep -- but she spends a lot of time with us on the couch or in a recliner in arms and rarely sleeps flat anywhere. She sleeps much better with a parent... but when awake, can entertain herself just looking around quietly. I don't believe one can "spoil" babies.”

“Seems like a good idea to taste everything at a public establishment before a young child eats it. Just a bite or a sip doesn't seem like too much of a burden. I have a toddler and follow that rule - no judgement from me, but nobody should really trust food from public places 100%, especially for the little ones.”

“i love this photo! its absolutely precious. as a new mom who, admittedly, can be sensitive about child-related stuff, i can't really see what all the fuss is about. some people have too much time on their hands to troll the internet and write hateful comments? iono. looks like a beautiful, fun moment between an innocent little girl and her daddy. something this world should treasure, not bash.”

“the thing is....many of the "modern parenting" practices you mentioned are not MODERN at all. they take parenting back to the basics - before formula, processed baby food, pixar cartoons, and mounds of baby gear. many of these practices that you find difficult might come easy to other parents, and vice versa. on the flip side, there's nothing wrong with the conveniences you have adopted. to be honest, for someone making a statement about how judgment makes you feel, you sound pretty judgemental.

my husband and i both work full time. i breastfeed my 13 month old, make his food as often as i can, and carry him when it's convenient and makes sense. on the other hand, we are no strangers to baby food pouches and goldfish, strollers, Nick Jr., and a crib in a nursery down the hall that, 9 times out of 10, awards us all a night of peaceful sleep. as long as you know your options and are making informed decisions, you just have to do what works for you.

i refuse to turn my nose up at other moms who don't make the same choices as me. what's the point? all these "mommy wars" undoubtedly stem from insecurity...parenting is not black and white. modern helicopter or laid back slacker. we're all dynamic and deserve to not be judged.”

“Not true. It's hard to make assumptions about other people's earnings. Many households that live frugally cannot make ends meet on one income.”

“But many, many working moms have to do so to financially support their families. It kills me to leave my baby every day, but without my income my family could not survive. Single moms, as well as moms who's partners also work but do not earn enough to support the entire family, have no choice but to work to support the needs of their children and household. These days, staying home with your children is somewhat of a luxury (financially; it is definitely an extremely challenging job).”

“Sorry i couldn´t answer before, but I just wanted you to know that I know all too well that unfortunately many Moms HAVE  to work. Even though they´d love to stay with thier children. When I quit my job it was hard. Living on one salary instead of two , plus one more family member! If staying at home is something you would like to do , try and find a way. It WILL strenghten your marriage and your kids will be much more happier. There are alot of sacrifices involved, but so is working and trying to raise a family ! I wish you well and thanks for your comment”

“If you are married and your spouse has a job, it is NOT a luxury to stay home. Just requires careful planning and being OK with having less stuff.”
