While I was pregnant I decided I should write a book for grandparents, "You can't do that anymore!". If I had a dollar for every time some older person has offered advice that goes against what we read or are told by our doctors, I would be rich!! A few of my favorites:
1. Rub your nipples with a towel to get them ready for breastfeeding
2. Rice Cereal in the bottle to help them sleep longer at night.
3. Don't spoil that baby by going to him every time he cries.
4. It's ok to use baby powder
I would love to hear some of yours!!
