First Pregnancy?
Learn the Truths behind Myths about Baby's Arrival 

"Once upon a time, a king and a queen were very unfortunate not to have a child. One day, however, their greatest wish came true..."

So begins many fairy tales. And like these tales, the arrival of a baby usually represents an introduction to the world of many myths.

Everyone will have a piece of advice. Unfortunately, most of it is contradictory. Here are some common myths:

"Carrying the baby whenever they cry will spoil them."

Current psychological research shows the opposite. When a child quickly receives what it needs they develop a feeling of self-confidence and become independent faster.

"When pregnant, you develop the image of an ideal baby."
