I think we can all use some ways to stop mom shaming. Being a new mother myself, I have heard and experienced all sorts of unwanted advice, comments, and just plain rude statements regarding my child, my appearance, or gasp, the way I choose to feed him. Unfortunately, these things happen and as much as we would like to avoid them, here are some easy ways to stop mom shaming. We have enough to worry about!

1. Telling an Expecting Mother How Big She is

Believe me, this poor momma has been thinking about nothing else besides getting this baby out of her! When you are pregnant, you are never comfortable, things swell constantly. Your favorite food one day can be your worst nightmare the next. And of course, there is the baby weight. Some mothers don’t gain much during their pregnancy. While on the other hand some, unfortunately, gain a lot. People constantly come up to women and either comment on their weight, how they are carrying, or guess what the gender is by how big you are. I actually had a woman tell me one time, β€œOh I didn’t know if you were pregnant or not. I thought you might just be heavy.” I don’t know what compelled that woman to say that to me, or how I was able to refrain from chewing her out, but it just totally baffled me that someone would be so inexplicably rude to a stranger! Let’s keep the weight comments to ourselves, momma is already conscious enough of what is going on inside her. This is one of the best ways to stop mom shaming.
