This is inspired by a thread on the breast feeding board.
What are some of the things that "older" people suggest or don't understand because they just don't realize that times have changed?
Here are some of mine...
I was asked if I had blankets to tuck in the baby in the crib.
I was told to give rice cereal so that I can sleep at night.
I was told that giving the baby water is ok because the hospitals use to send moms home with bottles of water for the babies back in the day.
I have to keep hearing about how we all use to sleep on our bellies.
My own mom wanted me to take the baby in her car in a loose car seat to drive to get my car a few blocks away at the bus stop so that I could take the baby for a spur of the moment doctors appointment.
and here's one of the most annoying...
If one more person calls my swaddles a "straight jacket" OR keeps saying that he wants his arms out and feels trapped I. AM. GOING. TO. FLIP. MY. SH!T!
That is how he feels secure! His startle reflex wakes him out of a dead sleep! Leave. Me. Alone.
