I'm pregnant for the first time, and giving advice. Is that OK?

I'm about 9 months pregnant with my first child, and I'm the kind of person who likes to be completely prepared as much as possible, so I've been reading all kinds of pregnancy and baby books. In your opinion, do you think it's OK for me to give advice in the Babies category? If it were you asking a question, would you want a first time mom who hasn't even given birth yet to give you advice or suggestions? Be completely honest, I just want your opinions.

  • Yes of course! Any info is good info, whether it's from experience or if you read it. You are not proclaiming to be an expert, you are just passing on what you've learned. It's a good thing. You might just know a heck of lot more than a lot of moms on here!

  • Aw honey, I've been giving advice ever since I found out I was pregnant.

    I just speak from what I know and what I've found out from my doctor and from other moms =]

  • I think its fine! Nobody is an expert and some people who have a lot of kids give horrible advice. Its just your opinion, nobody has to agree with it.
