I know it's hard to be quiet when you're hearing or given absolutely absurd advice about a baby. Dylan is in the 95th percentile for his weight and even though he's a big healthy boy I keep getting advice to "add cereal to his bottle." Then someone will chime in and say give it to him in a spoon...

Ultimately, it's my decision what I do. My Ped said to do the exact same thing with oatmeal (open nipple wider, etc.) Most of the time, if a mom is doing something, unsolicited advice will *not* help! I just smile and nod and do my own research instead of asking for advice (or sometimes even sharing what I'm doing!).

If it were me and they were doing something dangerous, I would ask them if they would like my advice first. There's SO much interfering info, it's difficult to know what really is best for baby.
