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
yep! we tried too, as first time parents didnt really know what to do. LO was up all night
You just jump up & run to her everytime she cries - you 're spoiling her (from DH since birth)
She's this way cause you've hoarded her (lo whines or cries when others pick her up) mind u dh only took 2 night feeds & has changed her diaper TWICE since she was born - didn't want to deal with her cause she cried a lot. Now she cries when he tries to hold her & it's all of a sudden upsetting him. UM where were you for 5 months buddy?
Not advice as such but MIL was getting excited about LO can have solids in a few weeks. I told her he wasn't having anything till as close to six months as poss and I was going blw. She told me I'd be letting my baby starve for 2months just so I can I try the latest 'fad craze' and he weighs too much to wait that long. I told her even if I tw I'll still be waiting till 6months that really set her off lol.
Get rid of my 2 cats n my dog as they wil b jealous n attack lo, my dog loves him n my cats couldn't care less there too busy beatin my dog up lol
Put netting over my bouncer wen lo is in it so the cats don't get him.
Cats wil try n sit on him cuz lo wit smell of milk
Wen he first came home, Jake wud sleep n wake every 4-5 hrs for a feed, hv sed feed every 3 hrs, woke him to feed him n he was one pissy baby, took another 3 hrs til he ate, hv came bk n sed I shud of forced him to eat, my reply was no n I won't b following ur advice again.
Let him cry he wrapping u round his finger
U shud b feedin him 3 jars a day by now!! Wtf..
Wat blw we never did that in my day, all made up these days.. - stranger on the bus askin if he is a good eater, as her baby was eatin rusks n crisps by 5 months!!!!
While prego a woman (distant relative) told me that to calm my baby when she cried I should eat an onion! LOL. I hate onions anyway... but really? She said it got in your breastmilk and would help to calm a crying baby... cause that is what her doctor told her when she was pregnant 50yrs ago! hehe. Maybe it is true- who knows, but I never tried it. haha.
There was LOADS more- but I would just politely say "thanks" and do whatever I was going to do anyway hehe.
