I want to rant about this because it annoys me so much. So my wife & I have a 3 month old baby. We have gotten some good advice and some bad advice (like smoking weed while pregnant is good, which is not true based on research). Well my best friend's wife had has a 1 year old & thinks she knows it all. She contacts my wife randomly or talks to her when me and my bud hangs out. Giving my wife the absolute worse advice I could imagine. To paint a picture on who this woman is... we can't play cards against humanity because she can't read most of the words.... also a sever alcoholic. anyways, she advised my wife to drink while breastfeeding to increase milk flow (my wife didnt) because she did it, looking up shows a lot of negative effects. She advised when he was a new born to just let him cry and ignore him for 8 hours, even if he is hungry. She did that her daughter, which we looked up and it causes a multitude of issues, short term and long term. This is just a small tip of the iceberg. She recently contacted my wife and said " don't get mad but you are spoiling him, you shouldn't give him much attention and we are holding him back" to paraphrase. That irratates me because I mean our son is excelling past his age goals by months. I worry about their daughter because when she was at our house she was ignored and just banged her forehead on the nearest solid objects (like table edges) and we are told to just ignore her and she does it all the time..... no thank you but I won't take any of your advice! I feel bad for the child. It's not her fault but man its annoying to me for her to judge us on our parenting and shove her ways down our throats when it's the worse advice in the world. She even told us that the pediatrician doesn't know what they are talking about. Wtf they trained and studied children. Sorry for the long rant but I am just irratated.
