What if we change the conversation?

I participated in an Ambassador Activation on behalf of Influence Central for WaterWipes. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

Is it just me, or does there seem to be a lot of judgement revolving around motherhood?  There are so many different ways in which to parent your children, and only you know the best way for your family.  It can be anything from homeschooling to public school, cloth diapering to disposables, co-sleeping to everyone has their own room, nursing to bottle feeding.


Instead of looking at one another and making judgement because someone is doing something different than you, perhaps we can look at the strengths that we all share as moms.

I often wonder what my baby would say to me if she could talk.  I wondered with all three of my children, of course. 


Would they say to cuddle more, and stress less?  Would they tell me to soak in every moment because they will pass by too quickly?

The most important thing to me, with regards to raising my children, is that they feel loved.  I want them to know how much I love and adore them, and that although it is definitely hard to raise little ones, my love is unconditional.

I would want them to know that I am always trying to do the best for them, just like all moms out there!


That is one of the reasons I love being a WaterWipes Mom; I know that I am doing the best I can for my baby by using chemical free wipes.

As moms we need to be in each others' corner!  Find the places we agree, and don't sweat what we may not agree with.  Being supportive is what being a WaterWipes mom is all about!



Motherhood can be lonely, we need to lift each other up and realize that we all are making the best choices for our individual family.


I had an amazing time contributing to the WaterWipes video about the messiest moments in motherhood – that is me at the 19 second mark!



Motherhood is definitely messy, whether it is changing diapers, wiping up spills, or trying to make our way through the challenges of parenting. 

I’m happy to know that in at least one area I can go with confidence, and that is with changing my baby’s diaper.  WaterWipes are made up of only two ingredients, 99.9% purified water and .1% grapefruit seed extract.  Gone are the days of diaper rashes with these wipes – which is especially important now that my baby is eating solids and not just nursing.

You can find WaterWipes by using their store locator and by following them on social media -


  
What would your baby tell you if they could talk right now?

  2. I agree that it's time to change the conversation. I will also be the first to celebrate that my son JUST ditched diapers for good. He's 5 and was wearing a diaper at night until last week (parenting-wise, we were just fine to let him make the change when he was ready). He decided he was done, and we have only had one accident. I hadn't heard of water wipes, but it sounds like a great product.

  4. I've been seeing these water wipes all over the web lately, and I'd love to try them. I have to see if I can find them here in Canada. - Jeanine

  5. I really hate mom shaming. I think that everyone needs to respect each other's decisions when it comes to parenting.

  6. I definitely don't participate in or pay attention to mom shaming. People need to find something better to do with their time!

  7. We have become such a judgmental society. I'm totally behind anyone urging temperance in our quick judgments and the consideration that everyone's experience is different before we open our mouths to condemn someone for their choices.

  8. The mommy wars are so terrible. I don't understand the need to judge one another. It is definitely one of those situations where we as a society should learn to "think before we speak!"

  9. We live in such a judgmental society, it's hard to change the conversation. I wish we would because I think we could all be happier lifting each other up instead of putting each other down.

  10. I agree, motherhood is riddled with the opinions and judgements of others and it's so important that we lift each other up. I need to check out these wipes they sound pretty awesome!

  11. We judge ourselves enough...we don't need to be judging each other. We're all moms who love our children and are doing our best!

  12. Yes! We moms need to be in one anothers' corners. It's absolutely no good to just go around judging one another!

  13. That would be so cool if we knew what babies were thinking...I can only imagine. I find it interesting that these Water Wipes contain .1% grapefruit seed extract.
