...again! It's a site with a name similar to this!
I must stop but it just really gets to me that people don't understand that anecdotes don't = evidence, that 'risk' doesn't mean you will definately die imediately and think that 'science' is all just made up to annoy mothers!
It makes me so frustrated that we are such a badly educated country science-wise!
I even emailed the moderator a few weeks ago, pointing out that mothers were being given wrong / dangerous advice (rusk in 12 week old's bottle deemed to be fine) and pointed out that the website's official advisors (which they have) ought to step in with the correct advice. They just replied that everyone has their own opinion, it's a forum etc. I, however, think that people really trust these sites and that the moderators have a responsibility to post and point out when dangerous advice is being given!
Seriously Bambipie So, if someone was on there telling them to rub gin on their gums to help teething pains do you think they'd still think everyone has a right to their opinion? That is dreadful. As far as rusks in bottles goes it's not just opinion, there is a very real risk of kidney damage.
