    I feel that I would be judged for the following:
    2 elective c sections
    Using controlled crying method
    Letting my daughter stay with her grandparents 2 nights a week so I only have to look after my newborn
    Drinking the odd glass of wine whilst pregnant
    Eating food such as sushi, sashimi, soft cheeses whilst pregnant
    Getting enjoyment from buying and using expensive designer brand products such as bugaboo pram, gucci baby bag, chanel handbag
    Asking my husband for a 'push present' for each baby and receiving them
    Exchanging gifts given to my children that I don't like

    I asked my husband for a push present and he said that ship has sailed because I didn't ask for DD1 haha. I pretty much just want a nice eternity ring and it seemed like a good excuse :P

    Oh my god that is brilliant!! Why have I never thought to do it?! This will change my life. Seriously.

    As for the original question I do far too many things that are judge-worthy I'd be here all day. Sometimes BH can seem as if it's full of 'perfect' mothers so this is a refreshing thread

    -My DH works full time and when he comes home from work he has to clean the kitchen
    -DH gets up with the girls when he's not working so I can lie in bed
    -I let DD have a bottle of hot chocolate each morning
    -I like it when my mum offers to have one of the girls over night
    -I use my ipad and iPhone way to much
    -i bf DD1 until she was 2yo and hope to with my now 4 month old

    I have thought of one more big one.

    I would rather play with the kids all day then sleep on the lounge when they sleep, than clean or do house work. I despise it. If there is anything that cant go into the dishwasher, I could almost throw it in the bin instead of washing it. lol.

    Don't get me wrong, the house will get cleaned once a fortnight. But I will never be the every second day or every day cleaning mum. I have toilet mats for a reason.

    Oh and I only change the sheets once a fortnight. (We all have showers/baths before bed)
