When you become a mom for the first time, you hear all sorts of arguments on what is "best" for your child. There's the obvious formula vs. breast milk argument that even non-parents have probably rolled their eyes about once or twice. You can prepare yourself for the mainstream attacks on issues such as that,… Continue reading Today I was Mom-Shamed
