Editorial Reviews Review

Inside the Book: "Myth Buster!"

The Safety Mom sets the record straight in her Myth Buster! feature.

  • Tummy vs. Back Sleeping

    Myth: It's dangerous to have babies sleep on their backs because they could die if they spit up or vomit while they're asleep.

    For healthy, full-term babies there is no greater risk for choking while lying on their backs than there is when lying on their stomachs. The United States Department of Health and Human Services states: "Healthy babies automatically swallow or cough up fluids. There has been no increase in choking or other problems for babies who sleep on their backs." The American Academy of Pediatrics also states that there is no evidence that choking is more frequent among infants lying on their backs.

  • You Don't Get a Cold from the Cold

    Myth: Going outside without a hat, coat, gloves, or with wet hair and getting chilled or overheated causes a baby or child to get sick.

    Cold germs are caused by viruses. The reason more colds happen in the winter months is because people are generally inside more and in closer proximity to one another. Cold viruses survive longer when the humidity is low, which is the case in the colder months.

    What will make your baby sick is contact with someone who is carrying germs. So, most importantly, keep strangers from touching your baby. Be sure that your older children and all other family members frequently wash their hands.

  • Benefits of Day Care

    Myth: Children who attend day care will have problems bonding with their parents.

    In a study conducted by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) entitled "The Study of Early Child Care and Youth Development," researchers found that children in day care settings demonstrated a greater ability to form relationships with peers and adults than children who did not attend day care. And, in fact, children in day care exhibited more positive interaction with their mothers than did children in other settings.

  • Removing a Bee Sting

    Myth: If you are stung, never pull the stinger out with your fingers because this can send more venom into your body.

    It is more important to get the stinger out of your child as soon as possible to reduce the risk of secondary infection. If additional venom is pumped in inadvertently, it will not increase the reaction.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is the first time I've ever heard of "The Safety Mom," so I don't know if she really is fun and lighthearted on TV, but it doesn't come through in print, or if she's not all that fun and lighthearted. I understand that keeping your children safe is hugely important and can be a heavy subject, and I understand and really, really appreciate Rhodes' mission being born out of losing her own first son to SIDS. She's built her entire career on safety and childproofing. However, my daughter isn't even here yet and after reading this book, I feel like I should wrap in bubble wrap myself, my entire house, and my daughter when she arrives, and not let anyone breathe, cough, smoke, or look cross-eyed at us anywhere within a five-mile radius, minimum. I could just be extra-nervy right now, at this point in my life, but I failed to get any fun or light-heartedness anywhere in this book. I don't feel at all reassured. I just feel paranoid that something's going to kill my baby, and that something will probably be my own ineptitude and stupidity.

This is not to say that there isn't helpful advice to be found in this book. The author even says at the beginning that as a parent, you pick and choose which advice to follow and which to let go. It's just that it's all presented as though it's all the most important thing to do. Also, Rhodes recommends very specific items, specific brands. Evenflo seems to be a big beneficiary of this, or maybe they helped sponsor the book. I don't know. I have mixed feelings about this. Either the stuff Rhodes recommends really is great and warrants being checked out, or she got promotional consideration for recommending specific products, which renders them just advertisements.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
While there is some decent advice in this book, I can't recommend it. My husband, who has also been reading it, agrees. Here's why:

- It tries to be WAY too comprehensive. I bought this because we're having a baby. I'm not really looking for safe trick-or-treating tips for a 5 year old yet, nor will I be keeping this book around that long to refer to it then. Baby tips, please.

- A lot of the stuff is just totally obvious. So obvious she only even dedicates 2 short paragraphs to much of it. I want to know things I may not have known - I already know to not leave the baby in an obviously dangerous situation. Some of the other stuff also seemed like a huge overkill.

- Author lost a child to SIDS (which she, on one hand says is totally unpreventable, but on the other hand gives you tips for helping prevent...?) and also has a son with Autism. That's totally fine, but I felt like a lot of her writing was centered on ME, ME, ME. As in, "hey look at my totally unique situation and sad sob story but hey, we're so happy now!". I just found that annoying.

- Can she stop bringing up the SIDS thing? I get that it's an issue that deserves a mention, but way to make me crazy paranoid.

- As others have pointed out, there are a lot of specific brands/models of things mentioned. I'm not worried so much with questioning her integrity there (though probably she did at least get permission from the companies to mention them, if not props and goodies). But what is annoying is that if you do have this book for any length of time (like until your kid's first trick or treating experience, as noted above), a lot of those products will no longer be available.

- I really didn't find any humor in the book. The name is all that's funny.

- The "what to pack in a diaper bag" etc checklists WERE helpful...but also very readily available online or by asking any random recent mother you may know.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Love may be a battlefield, but so is parenthood, an undertaking rife with minefields like: (in no particular order) toxic chemicals, swimming pools, irresistible electrical outlets, stairs, germs, crop pesticides, dogs, stairs, hot stoves, ticks, dust, BPA, and headstrong grandparents. What's a new parent to do? Live in a bubble? The author assures the reader that he or she should forego the bubble for some doses of common sense, prevention, preparedness, awareness, and good advice. Thus her book.

Motivated by the tragic death of her first child to SIDS and the learning problems of her son, the author has written a book with advice somewhere between hand holding and tough love, between coffee with the neighbor and Parenting 101. It's filled with up to date protocols for cribs, sleeping, car seats, furniture, safety, and health. For this reader who hasn't been involved in the world of babies for thirty years, it's been a good refresher and in some cases a source of eye opening revelations. For others it'll be just another book of same old, same old, and unwanted advice.

Rhodes loses some of her readers because the book's title, and whimsical cover design imply a light hearted book about parenting a young child. Instead the author might be reaching a bit too far by extending the scope of Honey I Lost the Baby to day care, au pairs, malls, amusement parks, bike safety, vacation safety, airports, hotels, ski vacations, and organized sports.

Last random thoughts:

I like the warnings about chemicals in the home and especially of triclosan, an overused and potentially dangerous antibiotic.
