Was told just the other day actually that because my 21mth old doesn't speak any words he's "mentally retarded" (forgive me I hate the term!) and there is a nice place you can send kids like that so they don't take up resources and time better spent on my "real" children.
Thank god these people aren't my in laws, I feel for my bestie.

The worst advice I was ever given was from my own mum. I tried dd6 on a little bit of solids at about 6 months but she wasn't interested. Mum said I'd keep trying because "if she doesn't start solids soon, she might never start". No probs mum, I'm happy to bf her until she's 83 ha ha

Not advice as such ... But DS2 was later to walk (15 months) and had a weird limp to it when he started. My friend who is a nurse asked me if she thought he may have been malnourished due to me being so stressed with my marriage ending while I was pregnant with him. I lost a lot of weight so she said maybe he didn't develop strongly enough. I felt a lot of guilt!! Thankfully he is totally fine and just had a weird little start up to walking to begin with.

My first daughter had colic really bad
I was told that there is no such thing as colic and she would scream in pain so much because I never burped her!!!
Cause I would totally not burp my poor baby for her to scream in pain for hours and hours 😳 stupid people
