No matter how
you do it...
No one knows your bub the way you do…
But, now more than ever before, it seems everyone has their say on how you parent your baby.
Whether it be from friends, the in-laws, a random stranger on the train, or even from ourselves, 'parent-shaming’ is on the rise in everyday life.
Despite all this judgement – you know what’s best for your baby, so trust you are doing it right.
If in doubt, be reassured by the ones who matter most…

Being in the public eye Snezana has experienced her fair share of parent shamers. This Super mama has joined up with Huggies to put an end to the parent shaming and share her parent experiences
I love everything about being a Mum. Watching them grow as their little personalities form. Watching them through each phase of their lives, learning to walk, talk, and trying new things. Seeing the looks on their little faces when they accomplish something and the pure excitement in their eyes. I truly do love everything, even the hard parts about being a parent.
I have felt judged as a parent at many different times during my journey raising three bubs. One that stuck with me most, was when I was asked by another group of Mums how long I’d breastfed Eve for. When I told them that it had been two years, I got so many strange looks and shocked answers of ’oh my goodness, no you didn’t!’ and ’why in the world would you breastfeed for so long?’ as it was deemed taboo to breastfeed for that long. Initially I was taken aback by how disgusted they were, but I breastfed for two years because that was what she needed. I took care of my baby the best I could, the way I knew she needed to be looked after.
You’re always going to take the initial statement to heart, but just know that that person may be coming from a place of insecurity themselves. It’s okay for them to have their own opinions, but you know what’s best for your child so keep doing it your way and forget what everyone else says. I think it’s so essential to remember that each child is different, and that the pressure you can feel as a new parent is overwhelming. At the end of the day, the most important thing is your child’s health and happiness.
