    Default Responding to stupid advice

    I just reply with 'Thanks, I'll keep that in mind.' Simple, polite & leaves me free to forget about it as soon as the conversation ends.

    I know before my son was born I needed heaps of advice! What's common sense to one person isnt to another.
    The best advice I got was to use pillowcases as bassinet sheets. So simple yet I never thought of it!
    Theres a big difference to helpful advice (like you have described) and advice that goes against the way you want to parent (like insisting you leve a baby to cry if you dont want to).
    This. Without hearing their delivery, that advice just seems nice and helpful. I didn't know much about sizing eg what size would my spawn likely need by summer time.
