Re: "Bad" parenting or just different?
I have a friend that does a lot of these things. I don't think she's a great mother but not bad either, just kind of clueless. I'm bothered the most by the bottle proping. It's not only not safe but it will lack the bonding that a baby needs when they have thier bottle held for them... I mean it's not long until a baby can do it for themselves, I don't think it would hurt to tell her that and remind her how important that bonding and holding during feeding sessions is. Sounds like she could use guidance and your good parenting will hopefully reflect upon her!
