2. Don’t eat lemons, it’ll make your baby hairy. Look what happened to Anil Kapoor! His mother clearly had a fixation.

Parenting advice

3. Do you wear pee-pads? You should, because you’re bladder will be completely out of control. It's better to pee in the pads than in the pants!

Parenting advice

4. If you have a C-section, close your eyes, because you don’t want to see your organs lying on a table next to you. Who's pulling them out anyways?

Parenting advice

5. You can use a nipple cream as a lip balm. Two birds, one arrow! Yo!

7. Don’t eat sugar, you’ll make the baby hyperactive. Do it unless of course, you want your child to participate in a marathon.

Parenting advice

8. Don’t have sex while pregnant, you’ll poke the baby right in the face. Do you want your baby to look like Jonah Hex?
