    I have a friend like this except I have a 5year old and am expecting again and she only just had her first!! Not saying that I know more than her but clearly I know about babies and being pregnant etc I just put her in her place nicely one day and she hasn't done it since!

    I had someone in my life a little similar. i deleted and moved on. So did she. we clashed and were not meant for eachother.

    She was holding him and talking to him saying 'you would just love a dummy but your mummy and daddy are mean and won't let you have one'

    Gah! So frustrating. Why introduce something if I don't need it!
    some babies dont need dummies because they cry. some babies are just "suckers" and want it as comfort. my ds doesnt cry much and i didnt believe he "needed a dummy" untill he started comfort sucking on everthing including my boobs when he was a newborn. he had one for a little while then kept spitting it out so i got rid of it. was just a phase.

    You can categorise her in your privacy settings as an 'exception'. Can't quite remember the correct terms (custom settings) but I have a number of 'judgey' people blocked from my feeds. You can choose which ones they can see though and block all others. Don't feel bad about not reading her messages, you have no obligation to do so & if you bump into her, just say 'sorry, I don't check my inbox very often'!
