"Mommy Guilt" have you experienced it?

Go back to work or stay home? Daycare or nanny? Cloth or disposable diapers?   Should you breast feed or use formula?  Moms have lots of choices…and with their decisions often comes a little "mommy guilt"

From the day my son was born to today as a mommy to a soon to be five year old little boy the "mommy guilt " is still strong as ever. I often struggle with the questions of am I doing the right thing for him or whether a decision I make for myself will affect his little life negatively.  

I recently had a discussion with some of my other mommy friends and realized we all go through it.  I came to the conclusion that we all have to just make sure we have a balanced life and feel confident in the choices we are making for our family.

I recently interviewed former Nanny of the Year and mom, Michelle LaRowe and she shared some tips on how to create work/life balance. 

Hopefully some of these tips and tools will give moms a little peace of mind and more quality time with their children.

How do you handle your "mommy guilt"?
