Parents have been reminded that they know their child best and will know what is best for their health.
Sue Atkins, a parenting expert, made the comment after research from Netmums revealed that 39 per cent of new mothers have been given a piece of advice by a family member that could be putting their child's health at risk.
Worldwide medical insurance customers might want to check with a professional, such as their GP, if there is a health issue about their infant that they would like some reassurance with.
Indeed, Ms Atkins urged parents to overcome the taboo associated with asking for parenting help and enquire with a professional if they need help or advice.
However, she added: "Always trust your intuition as you know your child the best and know what's best for them."
