Haha, such contentious subjects!

So what I’ve done so far is play the my MOM card.  ‘Oh that’s interesting, my mom did it this way so that’s just what I was planning on doing since our doctor said it was fine but I’ll have to look into other options as well.  For us I just feel comfortable with what I grew up seeing”

Oh, yeah, opinions vary greatly.  

It can also transend pediatricians.  I had a peditrician tell me I should NOT take my daughter to a chiropractor.  I did and he worked wonders on her AND said it was common to have to “readjust” an infant/toddler because of the way they were inutero.  In fact, one of the girls there said she took her baby in after it was born! 

So it not only varies between pediatricians, but it varies from specialty to specialty!

My mom friends are pretty much a group of women I met at the library infant program; we all have babies around the same age, so it was easy to become friends.  But we’re all SUPER different, so none of us agree on anything, lol.  Some of the moms are kinda hippy, some are really traditional, some are in the middle.  We all do things differently, so no one has gotten super defensive or upset about it yet.

I have had some conversations with not so close friends/co-workers/etc… about these types of things.  For them, I usually just listen to them explain why they do something (or why I should do it their way) and then smile or shrug it off and change the subject.

I think too each child is different.  I know my SIL still has her kids on whole milk but they are also very small.
