People love to give advice, especially to pregnant women so this #Blogtober14 prompt rings true for me. I don’t know what it is about a baby belly that screams “Please tell me everything you ever did with your children and why it’s the ONLY thing you should do or you will ruin them for life!” That goes for what they did while pregnant, for childbirth, for their infant and beyond! Even if you’re on your second child, people still seem to think that you can’t possibly have any idea what you’re doing.
Thankfully, my mother in law (Hi Carol!) came to my rescue and gave me a great piece of advice that has served me well over these last 2 years or so. She told me to hear all of the advice that people give me, then only use what feels right to me. I keep that in mind as people offer all of their parenting wisdom to me and I smile and nod. Then later I think about what they said and decide whether it’s for me or not and more on. Perfect!
