What is the Weirdest Drive-By Parenting Advice You've Ever Received?


Bookmark and Share



First: Visit “That Baby Looks Cold.”

Second: Write up the weirdest parenting, pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, formula feeding, infant care, discipline or new mom advice bomb ever dropped on you by a stranger.

Third: I don’t really have a third. But it would probably be polite to say “Submit your tale of weirdness to That Baby Looks Cold” so I can’t be accused of hogging all of the cringe-worthy entertainment.


I have nothing to do with the TBLC site, by the way. I just think it’s hilarious because I apparently walked around with “INCOMPETENT MOTHER” tattooed on my forehead for at least five or six months. I wanted to add to the tattoo “…WHO KNOWS ENOUGH TO KNOW THAT HER BABY DOES NOT NEED A HAT TO KEEP WARM ON THIS 95 DEGREE SEPTEMBER AFTERNOON THANK YOU VERY MUCH.”


There is a book called “Be Prepared: A Practical Handbook for New Dads” that has made my husband and I laugh hard over the last five years. I’ll send a copy of the book through Amazon.com to a commenter on this post that I will pick at random on Friday, April 21 at… how about 8:00 a.m. Pacific time?
