BBL: 011 The Things People Say (And Why You Shouldn’t Listen to Them)

birthbabylife200x200Getting pregnant, having a baby, becoming a parent – it all means that everyone (and their mother) will give you advice. Every once in awhile, that's great advice. Most of the time it's… not. Here's some common “advice” you'll get, and why you really should listen to it!

In this episode I cover:

  • Can you really spoil a baby?
  • Do you really only need to breastfeed for a few months?
  • How do you respond to someone asking if your baby sleeps through the night (and your baby isn't…)
  • What defines a “good baby” …and if you should bother worrying about it.
  • Why that last month pregnancy is so important for your baby's bones and brains
  • What to say when someone accuses you of breastfeeding your older baby “just because you like it”
  • What you can do to make richer breast milk for your baby
  • How long you should expect it to take when you move your child into his or her own bed
  • The old wive's tales you need to ignore
