so what wonderrful pearls of baby-rearing wisdom have y'all heard?
I was given a "birth to five" book by my health visitor, which is meant to give you lots of sound advice and "instructions" basically.
well this book says that you should NEVER give a child under 5 wholegrain/wholemeal foods LMAO
but recommends bread, pasta and rice as good foods for toddlers
but im guessing that's just bleached white flour produce then? :eyesroll.
oh and from family - if i hear the phrase "rod for your own back" ONE more time i may just burst. it's weird how they want me to leave baby alone/dont pick her up when she is crying, even though she rarely cries so it's not a chore at all i LOVE holding her. and yet they also want me to not hold her when she's happy "leave that baby she's perfectly happy"... so umm when am i meant to hold her? not when she is sad and not when she is happy and CERTAINLY not when she is sleeping cuz co-sleeping is weird and fatal..... hmmm??
i partly think that it's down to both mine and DH's family never having breastfed, so they don't understand demand feeding "stop feeding that baby so much" lol
oh oh also an old lady in a shop said the classic... "if you want a baby to sleep properly put IT in the cot, shut the door and do go back in until morning" WHAT the heck.
anyone else got some rants/pearls of wisdom? i thought ppl would leave me alone cuz this is my second, but naa.
