Parenthood brings with it a new set of rules and dangers, which brings about a level of anxiety that's unlike anything else. I never considered myself to be a worrier until I had two daughters. Now, if there's nothing to worry about, I will find something to be concerned about. It can be hard for new parents to differentiate the myth from the fact but believe it or not , there are many things you don't think are safe for your baby but actually are, and taking these things off your "worry list" can not only alleviate lots of unnecessary stress, but let you actually enjoy your role as a parent instead of always obsessing over what could go wrong.
Of course, many things can be unsafe for your little one when done a certain way or done without proper care and caution. But when it comes to the list of things parents unnecessarily worry about, limiting the options is definitely a good idea. Instead of spending your little one's first year worrying about the "what-ifs," do a little research about your concerns beforehand. This will free your mind and allow you to be the parent you want to be.
