BABY AND TODDLER TALES
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST


After you’ve had a baby, people are full of advice and tips on how they think babies and toddlers should be cared for. A lot of this advice comes from old wives tales. Here are some of the most common:

Wearing shoes will help a baby learn to walk faster. This is not only wrong it can be detrimental. Babies do best when they don’t have anything on their feet – this includes socks. This helps strengthen their foot muscles as well as provides traction as well as allows baby to explore touch through their foot.

An infant walker will help teach a baby to walk faster. This also can be detrimental to baby. Walkers inhibit walking because it does not teach the baby to balance and walk on their own. In addition, mobile walkers are actually very dangerous for babies and it has been recommended that they be banned.

Cats can steal the air from a baby’s mouth. This dates back to a time when cats were considered evil spirits. It’s impossible for cats, or any other animal for that matter, to steal air from a baby’s mouth or to suffocate a baby by covering baby’s mouth with their own. However, any animal should be supervised when close to a baby.
