No doubt about it, when it comes to parenting a baby, everyone has strong opinions on how it should be done. It starts the minute you find out your expecting. People will start asking you if you’re planning a home birth vs. a hospital birth. And then if you will have a medicated delivery, or an unmediated delivery.
And once the baby is born, get yourself prepared. For every decision you make, there is an alternate choice someone will feel was the better choice.
If I’ve learned anything by having four children, it’s to stick to my parenting gut, and never let others opinions sway what I feel is best for my family.What’s good for my family, might not be the right choice for yours.
And with so many hot parenting topics, I’ve oftentimes been on both sides of the debate. So at the end of the day, I’ve decided it’s best to keep most opinions to myself.
