It's only 8 weeks ago that I had my son, but since becoming a mom I've already noticed that a lot of recommendations are just useless. Even when I previously thought it was good advice.

What is the most useless/ridiculous advice you've ever been given?

Stop breastfeeding at a year or your kid will be messed up. Lol.

 That I should use one of those 'angel' monitors that will detect if the baby stops breathing in the crib. So unneccessary.

if you switch between a pacifier/bottle and breast before 6 weeks, the baby will have "nipple confusion"

I thought so too. My last baby has stopped breathing on us 3 times. Talk about scare the poop out of you.

"I know what I'm talking about!" (Just because she has more than 1 child) I'm sure you do but I know my child better than you do so...

I added infant cereal and the pureed banana's to my dd's formula bottles all the time. She loved it. It was her morning breakfast treat. Her dr told me I was doing just fine, he even told me it was perfectly fine to add the cereal to her bottles..

I don't understand why that is such horrible advice??
