Hi everyone, No idea if a topic like this exists but couldn't see one scrolling through on my phone. As the title suggests, what things do you do/not do that contravene what all the 'expert' advice is? My friend and I were chatting this morning about the guilt you feel when an email pops through that you read, when you realise that you do the opposite thing to that advice! So thought I'd see if anyone else feels guilty and to ease that we'd have a collection of things to make us feel like the fantastic mummies that we all are, expert or not. So, I'll start. This morning, an email off a baby website pinged and it was all about sleeping toddlers. They had about 3 experts saying how it was so important for you to NOT be there when baby falls asleep so they can self soothe and sleep through and never to let them fall asleep on the bottle. Well, James has always fallen asleep on the bottle, with me present, and then been moved into his crib, AND has slept through since he was 4 months old, apart from when he's teething. So against expert advice, probably causing a problem down the line, but he sleeps!! Please someone else add theirs so I'm not alone!!!
