- OB to mother, after the OB just finished explaining how inaccurate fetal weight assessment is.
“I have heard that when a child is either 12 lbs. or 12 weeks old that he should be capable of sleeping through the night. It worked with both of my children. They cried it out for 3 nights and then they were happier! So, since you had a big baby who was over 10 lbs., you don’t have to wait too long to get a good night’s sleep!”
- OB to mother immediately after the birth.
- OB to mother at 8 week ultrasound. The mother had a history of 4 previous vaginal births and her last baby had easily resolved sticky shoulders and weighed 8 pounds 3 ounces.
