I had to walk through a cloud of smoke to get inside and when i came out about half an hour later, they were still there.
    Every time I went to the nicu to be with my prem son, I'd walk through the smoke haze. Pregnant women, women post c-section in their teds, women in wheelchairs pushed by staff. I just felt fortunate that it wasn't me - I smoked more than a pack a day before my first was born and I nearly started up again seven years later walking through that haze.

    I was 20 when my son was born and until now hadn't considered myself a young mum! I do judge though OP, it's just human nature. Something I try to remember is you never know what is actually happening when you see something questionable in the shops etc. sooo many times now we've been caught in unexpected situations that would look really odd from the outside.

    My judging is not reserved to parents only, it's a general population thing

    I judge every now and again - but not for petty stuff like what brand of pram people are pushing.

    I don't judge based on age - there are good and bad parents in every age group.

    I cannot help but judge when I see instances of neglect, or blatant disregard for a child's safety. But I think that's a pretty normal and valid response.

    No, but I'm glad I wasn't a young mum, but I have 2 sisters and friends who were/are!

    I judge this sort of thing too. It's something that really riles me up.
