Stop Talking About My Child’s Weight

As a mom, or just as a parent, have you heard "oh he/she needs to stop eating" or "wow, they're so tiny" or any statements aimed at your child's weight? I know I have, and I am tired of it. .... It honestly makes me doubt my motherhood when I hear my baby is fat for his age or will be overweight as a toddler. It causes me to second guess his hunger cues and my mothers intuition, become insecure about whether I'm fit to be his mom, and other insecure thoughts.

Confessions of a Married Mama

Recently, I got a chance to collaborate with fellow blogger mama Jo Funderbunk (@momslikeher). We decided to produce point and counterpoint blog entries detailing our married vs. single motherhood experiences thus far. Jo is a newly single mama of a one-and-a-half-year-old son and she's trying to master the art of co-parenting. I, on the other hand, have been married for two years and am the mama of a seven-month-old son and expecting my second! Our experiences have been vastly different but when it comes down to the love of our family, we share a common bond. Click the link in my bio to read both of our stories; they’re posted sequentially. We’d love to hear your thoughts!
