and I), telling them (in “baby talk” voice) things they think we (the parents) should/ shouldn’t be doing in hopes we overhear, rather than telling us directly. Ex: *baby starts crying and grandparents immediately say to them “Oh! You must be soooo hungry. Are you hungry? Do you want milk? Aww, you poor thing.

It would be more helpful if once baby starts crying and isn’t consoled with simple rocking or didn’t just poop, etc., then they turn to me and say something like, “oh, she seems upset.

Same -- they were telling me to put cereal in a bottle since she was a month old
