A friend of ours has a 7 week old daughter and her son is almost 8, so theres a huge gap. In between her two, I've had 3, two boys and a girl. She lived with us for about a year and turned her nose up at 90% of my parenting methods. Her whole pregnancy, all I heard was how her son was so easy and such a great baby and this would be a breeze because she's SUCH an experienced mother.
So, now she has this incredibly fussy baby girl and is texting me constantly. Turns out I'm not so crazy. Turns out babywearing does help calm fussy babies. And gripe water isn't hokum. And swaddling rocks.
Makes me giggle and want to shout "I informed you thusly!"
