Every day on various Facebook support groups, or when I speak to parents, on television and everywhere you go I hear variations of the same phrase when it comes to parenting, particularly young babies;
"They say you should have them in their own room at 6 months",
"They say you shouldn't have them in your bed",
"They say you shouldn't hold them all the time or they'll always want holding",
"They say you should set up a feeding schedule and stick to it",
"They say you should jump off a cliff..."..?!
It actually infuriates me when people say these things, and yet I used to listen and believe them.
So what the hell is my problem? Well I have at least 5 actually...
