14 reasons you should totally (not) judge moms

As a mom, we all know, you get judged for what you wear and eat while pregnant, how you give birth, what you name your child, how you feed them, how you dress them, how many children you have, how you discipline them in public, how you dress yourself ... and so on through where your kids go to college and presumably, what they wear to your funeral.

Breathing. Basically, you will be judged for breathing.

But there's hope! The TODAY Parenting Team recently hosted a breakfast and panel discussion (sponsored by Similac's Sisterhood of Motherhood) dedicated to the goal of ending mom judging.

First step: Understand the problem. We asked moms what they've felt judged for. Here are some of the responses. Can you relate? Weigh in on our TODAY Parenting Team.
