We are ALL just trying to do the best we can with the information we’ve been given.
Maybe you didn’t even know what a baby container was until this week. Or maybe you didn’t know placing your baby on the floor was where they would thrive best. Maybe the baby gear industry has led you to believe that containers are the only place your baby is safe.
If that resonates with you, I beg you to never feel an ounce of guilt. Because we cannot do better until we know better. If we weren’t given the information to begin with, how can we be expected to know all the things or do all the things? We can’t.
This applies to so many areas of being a parent. We all make mistakes.
You are the best Mother and Father for your babies.
We are all just trying to figure this thing out one day at a time. So, the next time you come across a new piece of information, promise me this: use it to do better tomorrow, but never to guilt yourself for today.
