    Sunbake topless and burn your nipples, it will toughen them up for breast feeding.

    Dont comfort your newborn when they are meant to be sleeping, it will make them dependent on you.
    (And this is newborn, as in just left the hospital age.)

    LOL, my MCN told me to do this. I did it - well topless in the morning sun in my patio, so my nipples would dry out, because they were cracked, and needed healing. So banished off to the sunlight they were. They did heal up, and I continued to breastfeed LOL

    Scrub your nipples with a scrubbing brush each nigh to prepare them for BF. (Elderly woman).
    Funny enough I used the scrubbing and toughening them up with DD1 and breastfed easily, didn't use it with DD2 and it was horrendous and painful. Worked great with DD3&4 too.

    Put your baby in their own room

    You have to let them cry

    Don't mix feed. Pick one and stick to it

    Pumping does nothing for your supply

    Your baby needs to go on a diet

    He's got you wrapped around his little finger and is manipulating you.

    This is good advice but.. My nana just rang to tell me that the eggs we gave her are really bad and maybe we should check them before we eat them ourselves by putting them in water to see if they float. My advice to her was to get rid of the remaining eggs because we gave them to her 2 months ago.

    The pearlers for me were to give my 2 week old ds farex in with his milk to make him sleep through, he was breastfed. I should just give up breastfeeding because formula is so much better and healthier. Oh and I should lay my newborn on an adult pillow in the bassinet because the mattress was too hard......never mind the sids risk.

    Oh all of these were from my mil. You don't want to hear what her mother said to me!!!

    We were just discussing this in my DIG. Both of these by so called qualified midwives:

    Don't use breast shields, they ruin your supply and the baby never learns to feed without them

    Don't even bother considering exclusive pumping it will ruin your supply. You just need to try harder with bfing, that's the answer.

    I used shields and when I went to a consultant and successfully attached without them my supply disappeared almost overnight. Yet I know a mum who has successfully fed for more than 12 months with one. Coincidence?

    DD was on formula pretty much from birth (I won't go into details I had my reasons even if I do regret them now) but I got the farax in bottle one SOO much from so many people including the wiegh in nurse at community centre.
