A mummy emailed to ask me the ingredients of a laundry detergents, ending her email with a pinge of guilt:
i have regretted buying a lot of unsafe product all this while. sigh, just to think that i have exposed my girl to so much chemical without knowing it makes me feel like such a bad mum. 🙁
Here’s my reply to her and to all who feel mummy-guilt:
“We’re all mums and are learning along the way. Put aside all guilty feelings. As long as you try to stay informed, it’s really fine.
There’s a lot of misinformation or articles trying to scare us on the Internet. Just try what’s within your means and reach… Believe that you’re a wonderful mum. All the very best!”
Thank you for reading this, wonderful mums (and dads)!
