Silencing the Baby Police

While you’re likely to be offered a lot of well-meaning advice about parenting from friends, family and that stranger in the grocery store—don’t worry, you can take what you want want and leave the rest.

Pick your battles:

  • A nod and a well-meaning smile go a long way to diffuse a potential argument
  • Thank them for their concern and move on
  • Distract--don’t feel talking about baby, talk about something

Remember, there is a tremendous amount of good info out there—but there’s plenty of unreliable info, too. Consult with  your baby’s healthcare provider or other medical professionals if you have any serious concerns about your baby.
