The article reminded me about my early days as a mom.
I often felt judged about allowing my first son to use a pacifier. Random strangers in grocery store lines, would tell my baby, and a sweet baby-talk voice, "Oh, cutie...you don't need that thing in your mouth."
And the comments and opinions continued about my second son's finger sucking..."Oh, that poor guys is going to have to have braces on those teeth."
As I have grown as a mom, I have become more and more comfortable with my parenting choices and thus able to ignore or dismiss comments. But, at times, I still feel the sting of the judgements from others.
