    Hubbies Auntie said to do that as daughter kept losing weight in the beginning she thinks we should do everything they did in the 60's and 70's. Her daughter was annoyed I wouldn't let her give snakes qnd chocow to my 9 month old at xmas and then I was meaner as i wouldn't let her eat cubes of cheese like the 2yr Olds my daughter has severe issues with dairy if I have too much cheese or icecream she vomits for hrs why would I give it straight to her.

    When my DD1 was a bub ( she is 21 now!) Heinz (I think?) Used to sell small jars of pre-made juices, both orange and apple blackcurrant, that you could just pop a bottle cap and teat on and feed straight to bub. It's age group was 'From 4 months'

    Mothering has always been about common sense. My MIL told me to feed DD1 farex from birth to make her sleep. Of course I didn't because even back then, common sense won over 😊

    My XMIL asked me when DD1 was a newborn why i bothered breastfeeding her as she never did with her kids so why would i want the hassle.
    Also got the great advice that if DD1 kept spitting her dummy out i could pop a bit of masking tape across her face to hold it in......ummm no way lady and that sounds like a dangerous choking hazard

    Default Dodgy feeding advice.

    Some of these gave me a giggle. Especially the well meaning Great Nannas they are adorable aren't they!
    Imagine when we are Nannas I wonder what else will change between now and then. I'm picturing us saying to our great granddaughters 'OMG you don't start solids until 5 years old now - that is not how it was in my day, give that kid some food.....' :-)

    My mil suggested I use a sippy cup instead of bottles for my ds who had silent reflux as a newborn because that would solve his problem.

    How have our generations survived through such ideas?

    As nanas we can say: back in my day my parents used to feed me cornflour and water =) the feral kids on the floor is my favorite though
