My kids are 12 1/2 years apart and I swear that during those years, the medical profession must have changed its collective mind about everything! When I got pregnant with #2, I thought that I had experience on my side, but surprise! There are all new rules (well guidelines) on all aspects of parenting. Solid foods are now started at 6 months not 3 months. Babies need to sleep on their backs not their sides. Breastfeeding used to recommended for 6 weeks now it is at least a year. It kind of makes me wonder if they are just making this stuff up as they go along -just kidding ;)
AND all the baby gear that I used for my first baby is now deemed a safety hazard -scary thought! Of course the new baby gear they have these days completely rocks! Electric baby swings that don't wake the baby with a noise crank -genius!
Anybody else share my sense of amazement and confusion?
