Worst advice ever

I saw someone on FB posting about trying to lower a high fever. Someone told her to put the baby in an ice bath. Never ever do that.


What is the worst advice you have seen?

I could list a lot. But probably the worst I've seen is the idea of taking your child to a "chicken pox party". Someone in my sons playgroup was recommending that and I seriously couldn't think of a worse idea. It's been about a year, but that's still stuck with me as the worst piece of parenting advice I've ever heard.

I have been told to put vicks on my babies chest when he was congested... Luckily I didn't do it and I asked the doctor. He told me just to put a little on his feet and put socks on...  He said it would overwhelm my son.
