“honestbaby was founded by a mom frustrated with the myth of perfect parenting.
From the moment a new mother holds her baby, she’s bombarded with the “right” and “wrong” way to parent; breastfeeding, ferberizing, nipple confusion, the family bed, Baby Einstein, organic food, pacifiers… everyone has an opinion.
Whether it’s other new moms, family, friends, or self-proclaimed parenting experts, they push their views and make us doubt our ability as parents. Desperate for answers and prone to guilt, we believe everything we’re told.
Until we realize…there is no “right” way to raise a child and few women can live up to those super mom expectations anyway.
honestbaby is a place where it’s okay to tell your real stories, the good and the bad, without being judged. Where parents can admit they’re just giving it their best shot. Because truly that’s all that we can really do.
It’s time to bring parenting back to where it belongs – humorous, light, enjoyable and above all realistic. It’s time for all parents to celebrate imperfect parenting.”
Okay, now on to the review…
I received an adorable t-shirt from honestbaby. They have the most adorable shirts with cute sayings like “Not sleeping through the night” or Don’t expect a lot, I’m big for my age”. The shirt I chose for Cooper says “Sharing is over-rated”, which seems to be something he would say, if only he knew what over-rated meant.
The shirt is well made and very durable. Not to mention, I have never seen another shirt quite like it! It is a t-shirt, but the quote is sewn on to the shirt in a quote bubble. I love it! Cooper seems to be pretty proud of it, too! Even though he has no idea what it says, he told me that it is a “cool shirt”, which is a pretty awesome compliment from a 2 year old.
Honestbaby.com also has a wide selection of “Melissa & Doug” toys!
I highly recommend every parent check out http://www.honestbaby.com/, relax, take a deep breath, and pick out a shirt that tells the world how you really feel! There is nothing wrong with celebrating the imperfect journey of parenting!
