    I judge people who judge parents when they don't even have kids. They just don't have a clue really do they. Oh how I wish I could be a fly on the wall in about a years time

    I definitely judge parents when they consistently put their own selfish wants above their children (like partying every weekend while their kids are fobbed off on whoever will take them). I've seen it far too much lately and it makes me sad

    I judge all the time. On what depends on a number of factors. I can normally give people the benefit of the doubt, but sometimes you just can't because they're being so hideous.

    I couldn't care less if people want to judge me - I'm 27 with a child who is almost 8... they can judge away, because they don't know anything about us or my ability as a parent.

    Meh. I judge the boring twats who are judging me for feeding my toddler a happy meal, or sticking the kids in front of the TV, or organising a babysitter once a month so I can go out and get plastered like a teenager.......

    Ok you can judge me! My DS was in a routine very early in his life thanks to his stay in special care. When he came home I kept that routine. He is now 6 months and a very happy baby who receives plenty of attention, love, hugs and kisses. He sleeps well, meets all his milestones etc so I don't think he's suffered from a routine nor do I think I'm mean. I can tell when there is something wrong, I don't just let him cry in his cot cause its 'sleep time'. I don't think many mums would.

    I try not to judge as I believe every mum is just doing their best for them and their family. Apart from abuse/neglect scenarios of course. And often we don't know the full story of what's going on in each persons life. Perhaps a mum has pnd and has to put her baby in the cot to cry so she doesn't lose it. This mum is going through enough without receiving if judgement for allowing her baby to CIO. She needs support not judgement. That's the attitude I try and take... Doesn't always work, but I try!!

    Oh we'll you're going to hate me then!! My 5 week old DD is on a routine and boy does she thrive!! It's ignorant to assume that because we love them enough to put them in a routine that they're not receiving love and attention. Stupid comment cassieh. No offence but you're really showing your age with that comment. My DD receives more love and attention than she could ever possibly need and since being on this horrible routine you speak of she sleeps 6 hours straight at night, naps in the day and is a VERY happy baby. She's gaining weight like a champ and smiles lots! She can also take herself off to sleep at nap times. Can you say the same for your newborn?? I'm guessing not!

    I believe it's mean to NOT put a baby in a routine. Flying by the seat of your pants isn't a great option IMO

    I judge parents who smugly consider themselves 'experts' on not only their babies (but given that they can't seem to keep their story straight even about that, who would know?) but everyone else's babies after about 5 seconds of parenting.

    Honey, Let's meet back here in a few years and the pair of us will giggle over a slice of humble pie & just how much we all have to learn in this parenting gig

    Some babies have their own natural routine, some babies need to be shown how to do things like go to sleep so they can be healthy, some babies and parents are happy and thriving with no routine. Every baby is different, every family is different. Some parents need to return to work after a short time and actually need enough sleep to be able to perform their duties.
