How can I get my friend to lay off about making my own baby food?

Q: I have a new mom friend and we get along great except for one thing: She thinks I'm crazy not to make my own baby food. How do I get her to lay off?

A: Can I first just say how irritated I get by judgy friends? Making your own baby food is one of those things that sounds great, but it can also be time-consuming and simply doesn’t work for everyone. Besides, there are many organic options on the market today that may make sense for you and your baby, beyond those jars of mashed mystery meat! But rather than trying to argue your POV, the next time your friend tries to save your baby from the terrors of prepackaged food, simply smile and nod, and continue to feed your baby the way you want to. If she is so gung ho about making her own food, instead of wasting her time criticizing she can make you a batch!

  1. My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SleepBaby .org<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SleepBaby .org<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!
