Common Childcare Myths

by: ARA
(ARA) - Most new parents get a lot of advice from family and friends, before and after the baby is born. Although it is well-intended, in some cases, it may not be completely accurate.

There are a number of common misconceptions that are often passed along to new parents. Here are some of the more widespread childcare myths:

* Some people believe that taking too many flash pictures of a baby can damage his eyes. Fortunately this isnít true.

* Itís not true that vinyl toys could expose children to harmful levels of substances. The Consumer Products Safety Commission recently found ďno demonstrated health riskĒ from vinyl toys for children.

* Despite what you might have heard, you cannot spoil a baby by tending to her in the middle of the night, or by taking her out of the crib for feeding. The truth is you cannot spoil a baby, and in fact, you are providing some security and comfort when you answer their midnight cries.

* Another myth is that you canít use plastics in the microwave oven. If the manufacturer says itís okay to microwave the plastic, then go ahead and do so. But, be careful about the temperature of the food. There are hot spots in microwaved food and you donít want to burn the inside of your babyís mouth.

Parents have to be very careful where they get their information. The Internet can be a great source, but you have to be skeptical. There are a lot of good resources on the Web, but there is also a lot of misinformation. The best advice is to get a good pediatrician who can help you sort through all the ďadviceĒ about your childrenís care that comes your way.
