A recent survey revealed that many mums felt that the advice given to them by a relative was not only incorrect, but could actually harm their child’s health.
Examples cited included a mum being told that children under the age of one didn’t require sun lotion as they couldn’t get sunburnt, and the bizarre ‘claim’ that crushed beetles and iron fillings are good for a baby’s teeth! Much of the advice focused on sleeping routines, teething, weaning and breastfeeding.
