New Video Aims To Stop The Mommy Wars By Talking To Real Moms

A new short film is trying to put an end to mom-on-mom judgement

Every woman is different. We have different styles, different tastes, different opinions and different values. That is what makes the world such an interesting place. So, if every woman is different it makes sense that every mom must be different too, right?

Then why do we feel the need for moms to fit into this cookie cutter idea of what the perfect mother looks like?

There are countless different choices that parents make for their kids and there are hundreds of possibilities for each one of those choices. Breast or bottle? Cloth diapers or disposables? Co-sleeping or the Cry It Out method? And that is just the tip of the iceberg.

But here’s the thing, everyone has to do what is right for their family and that is okay.

We don’t have to judge a mom because she works, or because she doesn’t breastfeed or because she co-sleeps. We just don’t.

A new documentary from award-winning director Cynthia Wade and formula company Similac talks to a group of new moms about their lives and how they judge other moms.

It’s pretty eye opening. And sure, there is a heavy focus on not judging moms for formual-feeding (remember it is an ad for a formula company), it is still a wonderful video that focuses in on why we need to let all the judgement go.

To put it simply, we don’t know each other lives. We don’t know. Plain and simple.

Check out the video and let us know in the comments if you’ve ever felt judged, or maybe even judged another mom.
