Everyone has advice - people will tell you how to feed, that they potty trained at six months, you should be weaning now, tutting about whether you use a dummy or not..... it's your baby. Take the advice gratefully and think about it. But ultimately do what works for you based on all the 'friendly advice'!!!!!

(I now have to be careful I don't bore people with my 'friendly advice' too!

I want to change mine: Don't have a too much of a plan. Because that pretty much goes out the window with babies.

I never planned to CIO but it's the only way to retain my sanity! Now we are all sleeping better.

I politely ask people to NOT give me advice unless I ask for it. For me, parenting is all about trial and error and what works for you and what doesn't. So unless I am at a loss, I'll ask. By asking people to hold off advice unless you ask for it gives them another angle of looking at it and they start thinking 'you know what, she's got this at the moment'. And if I ask for advice, I always do give it a go.
