It will make you paranoid about everything, and question your own gut
as a parent. I’m a firm believer that a mother’s intuition trumps anything
else. So stop reading so much and stop Googling everything, because sure, it can be
your friend, but if used too much, it can also be your own worst enemy.
I get it, everything is new when you're a new parent, and you want to look everything up to make sure you aren't alone. I'm guilty of it myself. But I've discovered that you can find anything you're looking for in the internet world, and it's important to take everything with a grain of salt. Because, if you let it, Google will tell you all sorts of nonsense like...
1. Any ailment you have means
that you are dying. Seriously, if your arm hurts you are most likely dying of
some bone disease. If your right eye is twitching? Yep, you guessed it: Death.
You really can’t win with any “Dr. Google” prescriptions, so the best thing to
do is actually see your real doctor. Shocking, I
2. Whatever you have thought
about doing or will ever do for your child is wrong. Google probably should be
used very sparingly as a means of obtaining parenting advice. Anything you are
looking for will be there, on both ends of the spectrum. Tread cautiously.
