    i had my first at 16 my second at 22. and i look young too. i never really felt judged for being a young mum. for other things perhaps but not for being young.
    sometimes people say wow u look too young to have a 14yo! almost fishing for my age. i just respond with "i am!" or sometimes if i pick my dd up people call out "h..... your sister is here! lol i don't care.

    Thanks for all your posts everyone, lots of opinions, just wanted to see if anyone else was experiancing this, would just like to say who is anyone to say when is the "right" age to have children there are mums of all ages everywere i mean what about that lady in her seventies, if shes happy and her baby is in a healthy and loving environment then who cares! I see ladies in there fourtys with bubbas personally i couldnt think of anything worse than having a 10 year old at 50 but just cuz its not the right age for me doesnt mean it isnt for someone else, if your children are happy and healthy and well looked after that is all that matters, not a stupid number its only an age, yes mine may be smaller than some others but Ive still experiance my life to the full and i still am! Having children in my early 20s was the best decisicion i ever made! I love my children so much, and i am a bloody great mum! And i would do anything for them :-) i know i shouldnt let stupid comments and looks get to me but its just annoying cuz i would never do it to someone else.

    I was pregnant at 18 and had DS at 19, then pregnant at 21 and had DD at 22 and am now 23. I always get told I look really young but don't think I've ever had any nasty comments or looks shot my way. I don't really take offense to much though, can't be bothered lol, too much else going on.

    OP I'm sorry that people judge you for being a young mum. Just wanted to let you know I'm 37 and I think age is no barrier in being a great mum. Mum of all ages can be great and/or crappy!

    I am 30 soon and people say I look younger and things like "I can't believe you have 3 kids" oh well, take it as a compliment. As for people judging me...meh I can't be f@cked caring really.

    It's really sad but people judge on everything. I'm 28 had my first at 23. I had comments made to me during my pregnancies and still now and unfortunately I do reply sometimes such as saying actually I am married as in the legal sense and people get shocked and when I tell them I am studying teaching now as I followed my husband around while he was in the army they can't praise me enough.
    Just remember you are awesome at what you do and others are just jealous or wish they could do What you do.

    40. Then they start judging you for being an old Mum.

    I was 16 when i had DD1 she is now 13.5yr and im 30... I now have another 6yr old DD. and a 1 yr. old DS the worst thing i find is the are you sisters comment? And after that then the questions start or comments of you must have been so young? Blah blah

    my DD1 is in yr 8 at high-school and the boys tend to make a few inappropriate comments so it too affects our little ones sometimes but she loves how we can connect with each other but i don't regret being a young mum in the least was the best thing I've done in my life!

    I'd say they never will.

    People will realise you're only in your mid-late 30s when your kid is legally an adult... and might judge then too.

    Even if not, they'll judge you for things other than age anyway.

    Just try and ignore it. I had my daughter at 19. She's nearly 7 now and I'm 26. I don't really care what they think about me having had her young. It's not like I'm the first 18-year-old (when I fell pregnant) to have sex.
