    I try my very best not to, but yes, I have. Like the time a few months ago I was waddling into the maternity hospital and there was a woman sitting outside the entrance in a wheelchair with a drip, heavily pregnant smoking with her boyfriend/husband. 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.

    I compare, and sometimes feel better or worse about my parenting styles and choices. I don't gossip or shoot off daggers or snide comments to anyone about anything. I do feel sorry for the upbringing of some children and the unfortunate circumstances some children are introduced too.

    When they are wearing the telltale bandage of a new tattoo, yet their child has no shoes & clothes are in tatters, I judge. As for age, pram etc, couldn't give a hoot, as long as the children are cared for and loved is all I'm worried about.

    I tend to think 'good on you!' with young parents, I kinda regret starting when I was 29, and ending up an 'old' parent!

    Before being a young parent, I used to judge them.. But now I realize age is not a factor when I look at my bub who has the best of everything & two loving parents & that's all that matters.

    P.S I am a crazy parent who has a 6 week old and keeps everything, umbilical cord, hospital bracelets etc... and has filled 3 photo albums already :/

    I definitely judge a lot but keep these judgements to myself. I know even the most innocent comment can cause someone to take offense so I figure I won't say anything and everyone stays happy.

    ETA - age isn't really something I judge, I'm 23 and a mum, while I'm not a teen mum plenty of people have voiced their opinions that I'm too young to be married with a baby (it doesn't bother me though, I'm proud that I got my sh!t sorted at a young age to be able to comfortably start a family, I figure they're just jealous). I mostly judge on bogan-ness.
