A MOM has shared that she got shamed for the way her baby looked when they went on a walk.
The parent, who was hit with sarcastic insults, said the “mom-shaming” needed to stop.
Lauren (@laushealthylife) shared the video with over 60,000 TikTok followers.
The blonde, who was five weeks postpartum, was shocked by the treatment she received after she shared a viral video of her baby on a walk.
“I feel like we need to have a little chat about mom shaming,” she said.
One commenter criticized the mom for how she approached walking her baby: “The sun is so bright in bubs eyes! Put something over it!” they said.
The mom explained that comments of that variety were, unfortunately, common.
“This is a five-second clip so it’s not like anyone knows exactly how our entire walk was,” she said.
“I replied and said that I don’t need advice, we actually use a shade, and that this is just a five-second clip.”
The viewer, unfortunately, didn’t let up on the insults: “Making sure bubs’ discomfort gets you the likes, nailing motherhood,” they shot back.
Lauren urged her viewers to treat moms with more kindness: “The mom shaming in this space is truly out of hand,” she said.
People took to the comments to share their thoughts.
Many moms agreed with her sentiment: “I just had my first viral video and the amount of mom shaming… is really beating me up tonight,” said one commenter.
“It happens to me a bunch and it’s so hurtful,” said another.
“Preach mamma!! You are amazing and doing amazing!! So sorry you have to deal with this,” said a third.
