Did you find out it was bad after you tried it, or was the advice so ridiculous you never did?

I hated the "get sleep now, you will not be getting any when the baby comes". First I could not sleep even pregnant. And second how does sleeping then help at all later lol.

"Put padded bumpers, blankets, and plenty of soft toys in their crib so they feel secure."

I just smiled and nodded to that one and then walked away...

OMG I got that one too! Like sleep stores up and you can just take some of that extra sleep from an imaginary sleep storage facility whenever you need it.

Haha like you can store the energy you get from sleeping to use later or something. I didn't understand that either.

Well this isn't really bad advice but..I've been told by my older relatives to bite my baby's fingernails to shorten them if i'm too nervous using nail clippers. .I've never tried that advice and likely never will lol.

Don't put your arms above your head, it will tie the cord around the babies neck!
