Re: Parenting advice from...
My mom tried to give my dd sweet tea when she was seven months old, so I know about people trying to feed your child things that you/they would not want/need. I got all kinds of unsolicited advice. I just try to let it roll off my back. I just try to comment something like, "Isn't it interesting how ALL babies are different." They can't argue with that and it helps them realize that there isn't one set answer for anything. And, no I don't think you were off base at all. And, I hate it when people are condescending to you just because you are a first time mom; actually I just hate it when people are condescending period.
