There’s No Perfect Moms, Only REAL ones!

Dear Mom,

Today, I want you to know that the Perfect Mom label that we all have craved for… is fake!

Once upon a time, I really tried hard to measure up to that label. I got sucked into believing that having the Perfect Mom label is what would make me a good mother to my kids and a good wife to my husband.

They,” said that the one who has the perfect mom label never has bad days… She is always calm, happy, and organized. She is crafty, a fabulous chef, popular with friends and has the perfect body with no scars or cellulite.

Let me tell you a little secret… SHE doesn’t exist…

The Perfect Mom is someone we all want to be but will never be – but that’s okay because perfection isn’t part of motherhood.

There’s No Perfect Moms, Only REAL ones!

We all have unique stories to share and our own way of mothering.

Stop doubting yourself. Stop judging yourself. Stop comparing yourself.

You need to trust YOUR way.

Don’t let others tell you how to mother because you are the only one who knows your child.

Let’s stop trying to be the perfect mom and rather enjoy being the REAL mom.

The one who makes mistakes time after time but learns from it…

The one who always ends up putting her family first before herself…

The one who doesn’t have it all together but still smiles…

REAL moms don’t compare because real motherhood is not a competition.

It is filled with emotions, tantrums, piles of laundry and exhaustion.

It is a journey that we need to support each and other in…

Today, let’s celebrate the beauty of your real motherhood story.

I guess that is one of the reasons that I have become a Dove fan.

Dove celebrates REAL woman.

I am so excited to announce that Dove has finally launched a baby range – Baby Dove – but this isn’t just any other product launch…

Baby Dove has a strong message for moms across the world.

Baby Dove believes that there are no perfect moms, only real ones and that moms should trust their way.

A global Dove study, ‘Real Mothers Heard’, gathered insights from 6 000 mothers around the world. The findings show that 85% of women feel that being a mother is the happiest time of their life but equally that 89% feel pressure to be a perfect parent. This level of pressure is reinforced by the fact that 58% feel overwhelmed by the amount of information and advice on parenting. A barrage of information from all sorts of sources leaves new moms unsure of what to do, what facts to pay attention to and what advice to take.

Baby Dove supports mothers, by reminding them that no one knows their baby better than they do. And Dove believes that this positive reinforcement is just what moms need to hear, to be able to close out the noise and criticism, and listen in, and trust themselves to look after their baby just the right way.

Dove’s caring baby products go beyond mildness to help replenish essential moisture and nutrients in baby skin, helping to keep it moisturised by putting moisture back!

The Rich Moisture and Sensitive ranges are hypoallergenic, dermatologically tested and paediatrically approved. Baby Dove products are formulated with tear-free cleansers, moisturisers that uniquely replenish essential nutrients and they are also pH-neutral for all babies’ skin types.

Baby Dove is available in store from July 2017.
