I watched an online conversation once from a group of girls on a parenting page who make their children babies drink their milk by adding.................nesquick milk shake. Seems to be something a lot of woman done.
"just feed him 10 minutes on each side. whip it out, put it away, and flip him to the other side. fast and easy. that's what i did."
And when he was a few weeks old and really didn't like sucking on a binky she told us we need to buy every binky in the store and just keep trying them until we find one that he likes. She then proceeded to show up with a sack full of at least 10 different kinds of binkies. I just put them in a box and haven't used them yet....
Wow, people say some incredible things! The only really stupid thing I was told, and it was during pregnancy by my gyno, he told me I should consider getting rid of my cats because they were jeopardising my health.
MIL - Make baby stay awake all day and she'll sleep through the night
I heard this too but we were so tired and naive we BELIEVED IT, my poor baby was up for 12-14 hours straight as a newborn I can laugh now but yikes it was hell. He sleeps more in the day as a toddler than as a newborn
This just proves how resilent children can be. Im sure many people raised their kids following their own stupid advice and they turned out OK.
Im lucky I havent heard much bad advice. My mom did tell me she thought it was "gross" to BF baby after they can ask for it or pull your shirt up in public (mom isnt keen on NIP either). I plan on ignoring this advice.
