Guatemalans are very “helpful” when it comes to babies. With all the advice we get, Chrisi politely listens to their ideas but takes them with a large grain of salt.
Here are some of the advice we’ve received:
- Don’t walk over a water hose while pregnant or the umbilical cord will wrap around your baby.
- Don’t put ice in your drinks when breastfeeding or you won’t have enough milk.
- Don’t walk barefoot in the house or you’ll stop having milk for the baby.
- If a baby’s legs are visible, even in a hot room, then he’s probably freezing.
We love the interest the Guatemalans take in our little one. He has become a great conversation starter for us!
