Explaining something you know is untrue to a child in a condescending voice.
Ever since I realized my face wouldn't freeze in a funny look, I've been able to ignore her momsplaining.

Momsplaining is when a mother explains her spouse (in most cases but also to others as grandparents) how to take care of their baby in trivial things as how to hold it/feed it/change a diaper etc.
It resembels mansplaining in the intonation momsplaining is done.
Could you stop momsplaining me? I know how to feed a baby

Enough with this momsplaining! I know my child as good as you do

When you didn't ask for her opinion but she gives it anyway and it's rude af. Or just acting like I'm dumb in general.
EX1:
Me- *walks out of the house feeling fly af*
Mom- "You know, that dress is a little t---"
Me- SHUT UP I DIDN'T ASK YOU. Rude...stop Momsplaining

EX. 2:
Me- "Hey Mom, the light bulb is out in my lamp upstairs."
Mom- "Did you try changing it ?"

Me- *sarcastically* "No I didn't, I'm just a blithering fucking ninny and I didn't think of that at all! YES, MOM, I TRIED CHANGING IT FIRST. IT'S STILL NOT WORKING." smh

Explanation, opinion or advice from one mother to another, often unwanted, presented in a condescending, self-righteous and/or judgemental fashion.

Like mansplaining, but for mums
"Mel asked a question in a mother's group forum and there was so much momsplaining in the answers she was given. It was very hurtful and made her feel so much mom guilt."

"The momsplaining from those lactivists was hardcore."
