They used to do that waaay back, leave the babies in their cots outside and go inside for an hour... they used to do that everyday for an hour or so, apparently so they got used to playing by themselves so they learnt how to be independent and not clingy.
So dangerous imo. Firstly, skin cancer, heat stroke, sunburn, predators (we live in the nt...), dehydration. .. lots of things are wrong with that scenario
I agree with a little bit of sun, but shaded sun and not left alone!!!. Dd had jaundice when she was a bub and needed sunlight but they tell you not to do it for too long and not straight sun. Particularly not in darwin.

Sorry, just said the brief 'advice'. He was 4 months - way past jaundice stage! And was in reference to when we were going to the beach... Following comments such as 'look how white he is' 'ooh someone needs a tan'. We go outside almost everyday for walks or sit outside, I'm Certainly not holding him hostage from sunlight
This is coming from FIL who didn't understand why I was upset that they picked us up from airport with a carseat that was 'about 20 odd years old' and why was I upset? Cos it wasn't a 'fandangle new one' not to mention it wasn't even a proper rear facing one and was literally just lying down flat on the seat. So my baby's head was touching the seat in front. Yeah... Not someone I am going to take advice from!

When my first son was wee I stupidly trotted off to the chn like a good girl, and was seriously told that he was breastfeeding too often (every few hours) and to give him water instead of the breast sometimes...
Thank GOODNESS I suspected that was crap advice, and ignored it...

I got some advice off a home visit nurse about my 11 week old not sleeping and he had terrible reflux. Her advice was to lay him in the cot and let him scream, whilst shielding his eyes. It was terrible and I never took the advice , I comforted my poor boy and she glared at me. I couldn't do what she showed me, it was ridiculous and my son was so distressed.

That's two posts about shielding a baby's eyes when crying! What's that all about? I've never once heard anything like that!

I got told by someone when my DS3 was a few weeks old that if he doesnt want to go to sleep during the day to take him out into the bright sunlight because it will force him to close his eyes. I was too gobsmacked to respond.
