Family & Friends

   As soon as your baby is born, she will start to have friends. Kids in the neighborhood, your friends that come over to visit, anywhere you take you baby to on a regular basis. They will all want to hold your baby, play with her, and give you advice on how to take care of a baby, and what you are doing wrong.

   It's your job to keep the family and friends that could harm your baby away from them, and keep the ones that are good for your baby around.

* Keep sick people away from your baby

* Don't let them feed your baby anything, unless it's under your supervision

* Keep small children away from your baby. This is less important as the baby gets older.

* Everyone will have advice on how to take care of your baby. Everyone will tell you what you are doing wrong, and how to do it right. Most of this advice will be wrong, some of it will be good advice. Take their advice or ignore it. The decision is yours, and yours alone. Don't do anything you think is wrong for any reason. Even the advice you read in this book. Think for yourself. Under many circumstances, the advice is this book should not be used. The decision is yours.

* Watch closely if you let a small child play with your baby.
