Key words: Pouches, Infant-seats, Prams, Infant toys, Anticipatory guidance
The Authors suggest that anticipatory guidance be given to parents with respect to the use of pouches, infant-seats, prams, high chairs, toys and other equipment intended for babies and infants. Recommendations are then provided to inform this guidance based on available evidence and in the light of infant development in the first 18 months. Current opinions of family paediatricians are also reported and discussed. The ultimate aim, through more homogeneous and sound informations provided to parents by health professionals, is to promote healthy environments, to increase parental self-confidence and to oppose useless consumerism.
