    Hmmm…… March 26 might be too late for that baby shower……..

    Most useless advice: “You should have a natural delivery without drugs, I can’t believe you’re planning on having a C-section.” Ummmm, my doctor said it’s medically neccessary and she doesn’t think both babies will survive labor and delivery. So I’ll go with the doctor.

    From old-school relatives: Never wake a sleeping baby. My daughter was born at 38 weeks, and I think she was determined to sleep through those extra 2 weeks, whether she was in the womb or out! I had a hard enough problem with milk supply, and I actually had to wake her up to get her to try to nurse.

    Many thanks. Someone once said to me many years ago, fit your baby into your own life and schedule. Certainly I thought, that will happen. Never did.

    Most useless advice I got was which brand of diaper to use – different styles fit different bodies (and bodily movements). It’s a matter of trial and error. Looks like a really fun gift book – would love to win a gift to myself!

    Love this!! I think the most useless piece of advice was probably about not holding them too much. Who cares if you hold your baby too much doesn’t that mean you love them? They are only babies for so long and I want to enjoy every moment of it!

    um, how about to put kneepads on their little bruise-able knees.. because ya know, I’m sure that’s what the cave-man mommies did.

    Looks interesting! I think it’s a lot of fun reading it.

    Haha! I love that, sounds right up my alley! I can’t remember any useless piece of baby knowledge, but I was told plenty of times that I can’t move this or lift this or hold something because it’s not good. I’ve been doing the same work for 5 years, just because I’m pregnant doesn’t mean I’m an invalid!

    Looks like a really cute book!

    The most useless piece of advice I ever received cocerning being a parent was “It will get easier.” YEA RIGHT! LOL

    Before my oldest was born my mom threw me a baby shower and had each of the guests write some advice on a business card size piece of paper for me to put into the baby book. One of them said, “I don’t know much about babies, but I do know you’re not supposed to drop them on their heads, so don’t do that.”

    I don’t know if I got useless advice . . .I got told A LOT to “cherish the time – it goes by fast” and it was said so often that it felt useless . . .but it is so true, isn’t it?

    Breastfeed as long as you can, their poop stinks less with breastmilk! (Still not sure how true that is….)

    Great giveaway!

    I would love to share this with the next generation of my family having babies..being a great aunt is great. I ignored most of the useless information and all my kids survived!

    The advice comment that took the cake for me was, “You need to feed your baby formula because breast milk doesn’t have enough nutrients.” I had no words..

    My favorite useless advice: Be sure to speak only one language to your child, or he will be confused and not be able to speak either language.

    This book looks hilarious! Sorry I can’t think of any useless advice right now though I know I ignored a lot of it. The BEST advice I got was “sleep when the baby sleeps” although that really only works with the first one!

  22. Chriss

    The baby would learn to sleep through the normal household sounds. Then the tiptoeing began.

    Not directly about parenting, but when I was about to have a second C-section, the doctor tried to allay my fears by suggesting he could do the procedure with his eyes closed!
    I’d love to give this book to my DIL who is expecting her fourth!

    Didn’t hear much of useless advice. The advice I was given was all GREAT! Love to give the book to my daughter though!

    Sound fun to me! Advice is nice and can be used or not depending on who gives it to you!

    Sleep when the baby sleeps, how do you do that when you also have a two year old?

  33. Erin Pyle
    Mar 21 - 2:39 am

    the best useless advice given to me was that newborn stage is the hardest… HELLO? Newborn stage was the easiest! It’s when they are up and mobile getting into everything thats harder!

    Not advice but a comment, circa 1982—”You breast fed your babies? E-e-w, that’s so UNNATURAL!”

  35. Staci A
    Mar 21 - 2:14 pm

    Most useless? Don’t spoil your baby by holding him too much. (As he lays here napping on my lap!) They’re only little and snuggly for so long! I’ll enjoy every second of it while I can.

  36. Alison S.
    Mar 21 - 3:54 pm

    I ignored so much advice that I don’t think I have a particular one other than that I see friends of mine that are so limited and anti social because their lives revolve around the baby’s schedule. I’ve hauled my kids everywhere, any time I felt like it and they are just fine. ;) Best advice is to not become only mommy. Do stuff for you!

    I raised four children into now all wonderful adults. It all took time, understanding, and allot of being there for them when they needed me most. School, friends, baseball, football, basketball, cheer leading, homework, pimples, homecomings, and many more hill’s to climb after that. Just set a good ex sample for for your children, but most of all make sure they know whats right & wrong. And treat others the way you would wanted to be treated. (Respect)

    Useless piece of parenting advice? that it’s okay in big families to pass a newborn around in a house full of people. sadly, this comes from an in-law. Really?

    Mar 23 - 2:49 pm

    Don’t rock your baby too fast. No crap! Lol.

  45. Giant Sis
    Mar 23 - 10:32 pm

    I don’t have any kids – but I think one of the useless reasons I’ve been told why I SHOULD have kids is so that I’ll have someone to take care of ME when I get older… Is there some guarantee for that?

  46. Diane
    Mar 23 - 11:53 pm

    Worst advice? You should never let a baby cry himself to sleep! If you coddle them too much, they will never be sleep trained and you will have a two year old who needs to be rocked to sleep!

    We’re expecting our first and we haven’t gotten a lot of advice yet, but we have gotten a lot of warnings like, “you think you don’t sleep now…”

    If you have a lot of heartburn during pregnancy your baby will have a lot of hair.

    Always make sure your baby has socks and shoes on, or they will catch a cold. Yeah right! I was doing good to keep them clothed some days!

    If you get alot of heartburn the baby will be born with lots of hair.

    Since I’m not a parent, I don’t really have any useless advice, but I’ve always heard people say to sleep every chance you get.

    Let the baby cry themselves to sleep. It’s a stupid idea, especially if you have a colicky baby.

    “never, ever let your baby cry.” sure thing.
