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

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
