Bitches.  Ignore them and look forward to your beautiful baby girl!

You don’t even know this woman. Let it go.  Who cares what people think/say about your baby.  It’s YOUR baby.  This will be far from the first things people say about what you do with your kids.

Read the “Sanctimommy” page on Facebook. I think you’ve found one. Laughing

@nicannette:  oh boy. Having a baby or even just being pregnant is an open call for people to tell you shit. They will tell you everything they did (perfectly) and what to do so you can also be perfect. This is just the beginning. I say have a generic ‘oh that’s interesting’ or ‘I’m so glad that worked for you’ retort so you don’t get caught up in a million arguments. Ugh.

That lady is SUCH a psycho!

If she’s SO worried about sound waves, did she sit in a quiet room for her whole pregnancy? Did she have a “silent delivery”?

UGH! I hate people like that!

CONGRATS ON YOUR PERFECT LITTLE GIRL, THOUGH!

@nicannette:  I don’t see any evidence in that quote that she’s some sort of medical professonal OR “not an old fogey.” She just sounds like an old, run of the mill meddler…

I hate to say this…but it only gets worst. Congratulations on your baby girl. I get judgement for having had a emergency cesarean (I should have never got an epidural and I should have stuck it out past that 50+ hours of labor). I even got it for owning a swing (I should be holding the baby in my arms at all times!). I get it for letting my baby comfort nurse. I get it for using a baby bjorn. I get it for not just letting her “cry it out”. It gets tiring but you learn to develope a thick skin.

Ugh. People are dumb and, unfortunately, @Cady: is right. It only gets worse. My son is nearly 5 and people still attempt to offer “advice” on the regular. So annoying.

I wish I were fb friends with your SMIL. I’d comment saying “Maybe I’m the old fogey because I think rude people should keep their unwanted opinions to themselves.”

@nicannette:  First off congrats.

Second I think you’re blowing this out of proportion, the woman was expressing a point of view not personally attacking you, she’s saying she doesn’t get it and offering a different point of view and experience. 

People judge or criticize other people’s choices all the time, especially on parenting so I think you have to master the art of ignoring it and just taking in what you think may be useful to you.

@nicannette:  Ignore them. Millions and billions of babies have been born just FINE regardless of food, scans, gas, etc. You’ll probably be just fine! 🙂
