20 Strange Parenting Questions from Yahoo! Answers

By caseymullins |

Oh, the irony.

It starts off innocently enough: you Google a question you’re not sure about, and depending on the question, generally one of the first results to show up is from Yahoo! Answers. Most of us know to just skip right on past them — nothing but eye rolling and giggles come from them. But for some reason I clicked the first result. Yahoo! Answers is where terribly average or mediocre people can go to feel like very important experts on a topic. It’s a whole little sub-genre of society on there. Many questions are fake (“How do I breastfeed my husband?“) but then again, you can’t be sure because the 15 answers range from “YOU DON’T” to actual step-by-step instructions on how to breastfeed your husband.

Suddenly you realize an hour of your life has passed by you and you spent it with your brows furrowed and head tilted at the questions some people ask and sometimes even more surprised by the answers. It wasn’t to hard to gather up a few of the finest parenting inquiries available on Yahoo! Answers. I left feeling quite confident in my parenting ability and seriously wondering where these question-askers are in life. Are they my neighbor? Is it the checkout girl at the grocery store? IS IT MY COUSIN?

It's cool. Math can be hard for new moms. All this month to week to trimester talk, it can make you forget what you learned in grade 3.

    too funny. now all I want to do is go to Yahoo Answers and read dumb questions the rest of the day. :)

    You know what they say Casey…once you are stupid, you are stupid for a long time.

    7×4 is 28. I believe 7 months is closer to 30. Which is kind of a big difference, especially if you’re going into early labor say? Though I would hope in that case you’d call the doctor… Not check yahoo answers.

  4. Rachel says:

    I think my favorite was “Could my baby get pregnant if I have sex while I’m pregnant?”

  5. kay says:

    I have seen “Am I pregnant?” Well go use pregnancy test or go see doctor for answer..

  6. @sweetbabboo says:

    Those are hilarious! Thanks for the laugh.

  7. Allison says:

    In all fairness, I understand the mountain question. That altitude sickness can be a crazy thing. My nose bled off and on for days when we flew from Texas to Colorado. I never, ever get nose bleeds. And the headaches!

  8. Riley Elizabeth says:

    Ummm, I am pretty sure that Breastfeeding is NOT teh reason that your husband is sucking on your boob….

  9. Amelia says:

    Omg. I literally lawl’d when I read this and my daughter is napping. It’s totally worth it even if she wakes up.
