Hilary Duff, along with her sister, Haylie, are combating mom-on-mom bullying.
The dynamic sisters opened up to ET on Thursday about feeling criticized over their parenting skills – and are hoping to eliminate that type of judgment through the Sisterhood of Motherhood campaign.
"Even before you have your baby, you can start feeling the judgment," Hilary, 27, explains. "And, you know, becoming a mother and that whole process is so special and so magical really, but it's also very isolating."
The former Disney star recalls her choices that received the harshest judgments.
"The biggest things that stand out for me was choosing to have an epidural. I felt very judged by some people," Hilary admits. "Also, once I had breastfed for a certain amount of time and I was starting to work and starting to supplement with formula, I felt judged then."
"I think a lot of the times you feel like you should have all the answers and you feel like you should know how to do everything and nothing should go wrong," she adds. "You put so much pressure on yourself, and it's really kind of a lonely place to be. So I think women and families need to boost each other up instead of, you know, bullying one another."
And Hilary is already feeling protective over big sis Haylie, 30, who welcomed her first daughter, Ryan Ava, in May.
"It started like even in my delivery room, honestly. Like her being protective of me," Haylie says as Hilary confirms she was there "holding a leg" while her sister gave birth. "I held a leg for Luca. She held a leg for Ryan," Haylie adds.
The sisters obviously have their children to bond them even more now.
"I feel like we're good about just always listening to one another," Hilary says. "Every experience is different. That's the thing and I even have to be conscious of it when I'm talking to Haylie. She'll be saying something about Ryan. I'm like, 'With Luca, this.' But then I'm like, 'Oh, Luca's a totally different baby than Ryan.'"
As for whether they want more kids, the sisters can't say for sure but they do know they'd like to be pregnant together.
"We'd still like to do it together at some point," Hilary says. "Try to time that out right."
