Eva Amurri Martino: ‘Mom Shaming Drives Me Crazy’

05/05/2015 at 06:30 PM ET

As a new mother, Eva Amurri Martino thought a baby nurse could help her get in a groove.

But it turns out, the first-time mom just needed to follow her own instincts.

“I find that a lot of people have a lot of advice. You have to do what works for you, whether that’s co-sleeping or getting on a schedule, it has to work for your family,” the actress, 30, tells Cricket’s Circle.

“Our baby nurse got us on a schedule that was stressing me out, so we got rid of it.”

That attitude has been Amurri Martino’s mantra along the way: Finding what works best for her family. And the mother of daughter Marlowe Mae, 8 months, hopes others will share in her sentiments.

“Mom shaming drives me crazy,” she says. “Why does every mom need other moms to do things their way? New motherhood is such a vulnerable and powerful time, but it’s also really hard. Do not judge other moms on how they raise their children.”

Hoppy Easter!

The Easter Bunny has officially hopped into our homes, hid all the eggs and left lots of loot for some bunny to find.

But before the bunny’s big arrival, everyone from Kim Kardashian to Alyson Hannigan went to work creating the best baskets for their littlest loves. Meanwhile, Mario Lopez‘s daughter Gia and son Nico had a mini meet and greet with their new furry friend.

And the snapshots celebs shared on Sunday morning were to dye for: Country star Justin Moore‘s candid moment of his daughters with their colorful confections was eggs-tra adorable.

Eva Amurri Martino’s Daughter Tries Peas for the First Time – and It’s Adorable

01/13/2015 at 01:00 PM ET

It looks like Eva Amurri Martino‘s daughter isn’t so peased about her first food.

On Monday, the actress and her husband, Kyle Martino, attempted to give solids a go with their 5-month-old baby girl. And while Marlowe Mae first pushed away the peas, she eventually gave in to the green vegetable.

The result? A smirk, a shudder and an aftershock that is too adorable to miss.

“Marlowe tried food today for first time and reacted to peas same way I still do,” Martino wrote on Instagram, sharing a clip of the super cute moment.

She may have doubted herself a few times during her “marathon” 36-hour delivery, but after welcoming daughter Marlowe Mae, it’s been smooth sailing for Eva Amurri Martino — at least in the nursing department.

“I was really lucky. She latched right away and she’s a voracious eater,” Martino, 29, tells PEOPLE.

She’s such a good eater that Mom actually needs to step in from time to time. “It can actually be a challenge because she eats a little too fast and I have to slow her down.”

But while the actress says her little lady is a natural, she’s honest about the inevitable early challenges of breastfeeding.

Eva Amurri Martino Introduces Daughter Marlowe Mae

09/10/2014 at 01:00 PM ET

Eva Amurri Martino had all her ducks in a row awaiting the arrival of her first child with NBC soccer analyst Kyle Martino.

But nothing could have prepared her for the 36-hour labor and delivery of little Marlowe Mae, who arrived on Aug. 9 — 11 days early.

Mom Susan Sarandon was on the first flight to Los Angeles once she received the call from her daughter and by her side, along with Kyle, during the delivery. “It was great to have her here,” the actress, 29, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Her “marathon” homebirth at the couple’s California abode was a “really, really, intense experience,” she says.

“I just felt so lucky to have the kind of delivery that I wanted and that there were no complications. At the time, I was like, ‘Maybe I’m crazy’ because it was so intense. I think everyone has that moment when they’re in labor, but once she came out I felt like I could do it again in a second.”

Adds Eva, “I expected it to be a very weepy moment and for me, it was totally surreal.”

It’s time for some sweet lovin’ from her Honey!

Eva Amurri Martino and husband Kyle Martino welcomed their first child over the weekend, her rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

Daughter Marlowe Mae Martino was born on Saturday, Aug. 9, weighing in at 6 lbs., 11 oz.

The actress and her husband, an NBC sports analyst, “are thrilled and enjoying the new addition to their family,” the rep tells PEOPLE.

Not only are the couple first time parents, but the arrival of their daughter also means Amurri Martino’s mother, actress Susan Sarandon, is officially a grandmother — one who will not be called grandma.

“I borrowed this name from a very dear friend of mine who’s from the South, and his grandma was ‘Honey,'” Sarandon has said.

07/01/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

Not long ago, Eva Amurri Martino admitted she was still learning how to dress up her bump. But after spotting her at Monday night’s premiere of Tammy, it’s pretty clear she’s a quick study.

The mom-to-be, who is expecting a daughter, walked the red carpet in a brightly patterned mini dress that hugged all her curves — including her growing baby belly!

And although it’s hard to believe, her chic frock (we love the colorful design!) isn’t from the maternity department.

“Getting super pumped for the #Tammy premiere tonight with @SusanSarandon! I will be wearing the last dress I own that fits my belly,” Amurri Martino Tweeted before the event.
