There's nothing like pregnancy and newborns to bring out the endless advice from family, friends and strangers alike. From the moment you share your good news through taking that new baby home and beyond, you'll be told over and over again exactly what you should and should't do. 

And guess what? We're here to tell you to ignore most of that noise. We learned from personal experience that while most "words of wisdom" come from good intentions, there is nothing truly wiser than trusting your gut and your own individual body and baby.

From annoying to just plain wrong, these bits of advice that are often doled out are perfect examples of suggestions we wish we hadn't abided by. Dive in and take notes.
