    Default Dodgy feeding advice.

    So today I got another pearl od wisdom from my mother. Ds is not drinking as much milk now that I have transitioned him to cows milk so I was talking to my mum about it. Her advice? To give my 15 month old milo instead of milk for his night bottle! I was shocked. This is on the back of telling me to cook his carrots with honey if he isn't eating enough veges.
    I think I have gotten a partial answer to my unhealthy attitude to food (and bad teeth) and her diabetes!

    Have you had any strange or worrying advice lately?

    I was told there's no point mix feeding. Pick one and stick to it. Oh really based on your extensive scientific research from your armchair?

    Whilst drinking a glass or cordial and speaking to my nan she said to 4 month old DS, "you'll get some of that soon". I replied saying no he will only be getting water. To which she replied "that's cruelty"!

    Wow! Those are some interesting ones. My mum laughed at me and said there was no point wanting to start with veggies before fruit as DD's medication is banana flavoured anyway.

    My uncle asked me at Christmas if DD (the 10weeks) was still bf. I said yeah. He advised me to change over to bottles so DH could feed her so they could bond. He wouldn't believe that DH is happy to not feed her bottles and had a great bond with her already. Their bond was sealed when I spent 2 hours in theatre straight after her birth. Some people just don't understand that what works for them might not work for others.

    Mmmm tasty :P

    My grandmother (90y) told me to add mashed potatoes to bottles from a month old to encourage sleep.
    She also told me never to place a baby on the floor because it will turn them feral and they will end up as drug dealers.....
