BBC recycles the old Baby Box scare story with the help of a Professor
The BBC’s Scottish politics website today prominently carries this story:
“Baby box safety doubts raised by experts”
Our famously alert readers may recall as far back as five-and-a-half months ago, which was the last time the Scottish media tried to whip up demented scare stories about baby boxes, which have been given to every new mother in Finland for approximately 70 years and caused absolutely no documented problems.
So what’s fresh about the story to justify this significant new coverage? Let’s see.
The person “raising doubts” is Peter Blair, who wants the boxes only to be used for babies to sleep in temporarily in emergencies.
