as a mom, you learn as you go. any of you ladies have a problem with your child's grandmother always trying to give you advice, even when you haven't asked...or already know it? Last night, my daughter's paternal grandmother insisted on informing me that there are different kinds of nipples for different things. like cereal. i enlarged some of the nipple holes myself because it was in the middle of the night and i wasn't about to go to walmart for something that can be done manually. she doesn't choke on food, she doesn't even have trouble eating from those bottles when there ISN't cereal in them. She pretty much pissed me off...because she then proceeded to tell me all kinds of useless info...or useless at the moment anyway.

I get a lot of advice that I don't want from my mother in law. For the most part, I just smile take it in and continue to do things the way I always have. There has been a few tid bits that may have not helped at the moment she said them, but they did help later, when I exhausted everything I knew. A few times I have had to nicely remind her that my son is my son and I am in charge of him.

Quoting Sara:

You do get a lot...that being said: Be careful cutting nipples. The damage to the nipple can make it weak and cause parts of the nipple to come off and possibly choke your baby. Also, I have read that you should not put cereal in bottles. Talk to your child's dr if you have any questions about it. Sorry for more advice...



My Dr. told us it was fine to put some cereal into a bottle.. You can buy the actual cups for this at the store, but I just used a bottle. ** I didn't do it very often**
