DON'T Do This If You Have A Baby! Here Are 18 Practical Tips

Aug 17, 2007
(1) Don't let your baby nap or sleep with a bottle of milk or juice. It could cause tooth decay.

(2) Don't let your baby fall asleep with a pacifier because she may wake up and start crying if it falls out.

(3) Don't keep loose objects in the back seat of the car when baby is in the car seat. Sudden stops may cause objects to fall on the baby.

(4) Don't heat bottles in the microwave because the milk could get too hot and burn your baby.

(5) Don't forget to make time for a romantic rendezvous with your husband after the new baby comes.

(6) Don't feel pressured to finish housework - caring for your newborn is top priority.

(7) Don't feed your baby with honey - it can cause health problems.

(8) Don't dress your baby in any clothing that has strings or loose ties because these could cause strangulation.

(9) Don't give your infant any small, hard foods, such as nuts, popcorn or raisins.

(10) Don't use pressure gates at the top of stairs because your baby could lean against it, push it over and go tumbling.

(11) Don't take your baby out of the car seat to breastfeed, even for a few minutes, while taking a car trip. Take the time to pull over and prevent any accidents before they happen.

(12) Don't put too many large toys in the playpen with an older baby who can pull herself up. She might use these to climb out.

(13) Don't put off decorating your nursery because you might not have time after the baby arrives.

(14) Don't put magnets on the refrigerator door because they can break and the small magnetic piece is a choking hazard.

(15) Don't let your baby snack on crackers or other bread products all day. These can fill her up, making her less interested in more nutritious foods at mealtimes.

(16) Don't let your baby sleep with dolls or stuffed animals that hold cassette tapes because if the tape unwinds it could cause strangulation.

(17) Don't let your baby play with balloons or plastic bags - they could be a choking hazard.

(18) Don't bathe your baby more than 2 to 3 times a week during her first year or her skin may get dried out. If a bath is part of the daily bedtime routine, then keep it brief.
