Catching A Baby Cold


CATCHING A BABY COLD
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST


A very old wives tale believed in certain parts of the world says that a woman that has just given birth should never be caught in the rain or she will “catch a baby cold” which will lead to her death, leaving her new baby motherless. For days or weeks after the birth of her baby friends and family will ensure that the mother is not out alone so that she doesn’t get caught in the rain. If by some chance the woman is caught in the rain friends and family quickly cover her and usher her indoors where they dry her off as quickly as possible.

This old wives tale is probably rooted in the fact that many women used to pass away shortly after childbirth. While the rain was not a likely cause and excessive blood loss or infection was, those around the mother probably assumed that she caught a cold in the rain and died. Luckily, it has been proven that rain itself does not cause a cold, meaning most new mothers will be completely safe if they happen to get caught in a sudden downpour.
