The Similac 'End Mommy Wars' campaign has just released a deeply empathetic documentary short that reminds everyone not to judge new mothers.

In the End Mommy Wars short film from director Cynthia Wade, mothers discuss the judgment they felt towards other new parents before having their own children. They talk about the stereotypes that are used to label mothers, like the neglectful working mother and the uncaring bottle-feeding mom.

As the narrative of the End Mommy Wars film progresses, the women begin to reveal their own stories of motherhood. They share the trials they've faced as professional women who also care for their children. One woman recounts the intense personal story of being a mother of preemies and then realizing she couldn't breastfeed.

The End Mommy Wars documentary from Similac reminds its viewers that no one can know what is going on inside a family's personal life, and that compassion should be offered rather than judgment.
