If I earn N1000 for every time people have tried imposing their way of taking care of their baby on me, I’ll be so rich right now.
I sat with a group of women yesterday and one of them goes; your baby’s hair is too dry! You should add some oil!
Out of courtesy, I proceeded to explain that my ‘Sonshine’ has a boil at the back of his head and I was advised by the Matron to keep oil minimal… Just as I stopped talking, another mum said well then you shouldn’t add oil at all! It will worsen it.
Before I knew it, both mums were arguing intensely on who was right while I looked on.
The lesson I learned from that was, do your thing your way. As much as you want people’s opinion based on their personal experiences, be careful not to take it all in.
Mums, how do you handle multiple unsolicited opinions? Let’s discuss in the comment below.
Your Baby, Your Rules.
