O new mother, eat more laddoos

Ten spoons of ghee can make you one too

“Your milk jugs are empty.

Formula is the way to go.”

“Why do you keep picking her up?

Just let her ‘cry it out’ too”

“Next time listen to me

Jump and twirl around One, Two, Three

And you will have a pretty boy

Just like me”.

 

You can’t shut them out!

You can’t shut them up!

They think it’s their right

They think they know it all!

Distant relatives or aunty uncles

Who have to spew it all out.

 

But now! You have something in your arsenal,

One on your side,

Who will give you all he has

To bust the myths and show the facts

To fight off formula giants

Or give you the stats

You can ask him any question

He will not refuse

You will get more than you can handle

New terms you might never use.

 

He is my best friend

My companion on long dark nights

My source, my inspiration

My Go-to, my everything

He is Google, Google, Google

The Lord of All The Files.

 

Question for the day: What’s the weirdest advice you ever got when your child was born? If you aren’t a parent, what are some funny myths you have heard about?

    Superb take on the prompt.
    Google is the ultimate answer
    But, sometimes its scary too…a common cold sometimes gets blown up by google to some deadly disease.

      So true. Too much information coupled with an active imagination can be a problem too!

    Google has most of the answers but not all. If a mom asks why her infant is crying, will Google fix up her problem?

    Haha, good one. Google can be scary sometimes too though.

    Weirdest advice I’ve ever got – oh dear don’t even ask! I could write a whole post about it someday.

    If I were a parent, I would be on Google non-stop questioning every hiccup, mole, and pattern of behavior.
