    Default OMG 'The Bump' newsletter

    This is an excerpt from the enewsletter I received from The Bump today.
    Your baby is 37 weeks!
    [Tip] If you're bottle feeding, limit baby's daily intake to 16 to 24 ounces of formula or breast milk. If she still wants more to drink, offer water.

    I'm speechless except to say thank goodness I found LLL.

    Yeesh, 16 oz of breastmilk per day would be pretty slim pickings!
    Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
    Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"

    What???
    It's disturbing to think that this advice is going out and that people might actually follow it....
    Are you planning on writing to them at all about this?

    Terrible advice and I have since unsubscribed from the newsletter because this isn't the first time I've read something out right stupid.

    Agreed, they put out lots of stupid stuff and this one put me over the edge to unsubscribe. I really liked the changes in your baby week by week content. It was dead on a lot of the time, but I didn't need it. Just thought it was cute. But these little tips, for which I'm sure they have some doctor's approval, have just become ridiculous.

    Based on the volume of dumb crap they publish I'm happy to write them but I will keep expectations low.
