Mommy Snob

Okay, I'm a mommy snob sometimes.  I've read a few blog posts about other moms giving dirty looks or leaving negative comments.  I'm not one of those.  My mommy snobbery comes out when I hear, read or see other moms doing things to their kids mainly for their own convenience without regard to the research proving it's not in the best interest of their child.  Or they take some of these baby training books word for word without using common sense with it.  It makes me wonder why some women choose to be parents.

The biggest problem seems to be around bed time.  Why in the world would you spend hundreds of dollars on the safest car seat, stroller, crib and devote your time to nurture your child during the day just to check out of parenting at night?  Why would parents think it's okay to leave your child crying, screaming, begging for you for minutes or (god forbid) hours until they give up?  I'm sorry but letting your kid cry it out until they give up sounds cruel to me.  Babies cry for a reason.  It's not to piss you off, or manipulate you.  An infant cries to get their needs met, period.
