Baby sitting rules

She looks worried again. Her baby is new and her brain is full.

She asks, “Which is best, breast or bottle?”

I answer, “Getting fed.”

“How about cot sleeping or co-sleeping?”


“Cloth or disposable?”

“Clean, dry nappy.”

“Spoon fed, baby led weaning, homemade food, baby food jars?”

“Being fed.”

“How about a dummy, thumb sucking or dirty old comfort rag?”

“Anything that brings comfort.”

“Okay Mum, you can babysit for a while” she says with pride.

“Thank you, but I need just one more answer”

“What is it?”

“It has been three months, have you named the baby yet?”
