i mean, depending on how old you are look at how you were raised or your parents were raised. when my mom was growing up they didnt even have car seats (granted then cars were made of metal i think still)!!!
up until 1993 babies slept on their stomachs all the time, there was no fancy coverings that they put over the matresses to keep the 'toxins' from leaking out
women would smoke throughout their pregnancies! and in the house while the babies were infants! and i bet they even ate hot dogs and deli meat!
and kids could play outside without having to worry about creep-o's!!!! im not saying everything was great because obviously the SIDS rate HAS gone down, but just think about how you or your partents were raised before you get into an anxiety induced stupor thats so easy to get worked up into nowadays

hear, hear! there definitely is way too much fear mongering. My back yard is completely fenced in and my side gates locked, my MIL still freaks out when she hears I allow my 3 year old to be out there playing. omg, the paranoia.
