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

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

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)
