There are confessions and then there are CONFESSIONS. You won't believe some of the stuff that the members of CafeMom are willing to spill publicly (as long as they don't have to use their real names). Mostly because they know other moms have either done some of them or at least contemplated doing them very seriously. Hey, we are only human!
We're not sure what's more unbelievable -- the confessions themselves or the way some readers reacted to them.
Here are 25 pretty shocking parenting choices moms confessed to making, and some reader reactions. Some you can imagine ... but some may surprise you ...
I don't change my baby's diaper during the night -- I'm too tired. In the morning it's always filled with pee or poop, or both. He's getting an awful diaper rash, but I lied to the pediatrician saying I didn't know why his bum was all red.
"Here's my idea, Mommy. Take a laxative and wear a Depends for 24 hours w/o changing yourself and see if you still think it's OK to do this to your child!"
"Dirty diapers don't last forever and neither do the sleepless nights (not until the teenage years!). SO get up, go do it, and be a wonderful, loving and tired mom -- it goes by so fast!"
