My big sister and I were talking about my grans old wives tales (We are from glasgow) and wondered what else people say around the country, the best of my grans are;
- babies with stick out ears are due to them straining to hear their mothers voice in the womb, apparently you need to talk loudly to prevent it happening.
- babies develop a lisp when people tickle their feet,
- babies height depends on the length of cot you put them in
And our favourite
- your baby's complexion depends on the type of bread you eat ( in scotland we have a plain or pan bread, both made with the same ingredients, no difference to my gran though!).
Any other family pregnancy old wives tales from around the country?
