I think there's some truth in that, yes -- it probably depends when HVs/midwives last updated their training etc. But that's a big part of the problem with forum advice too -- people say "oh yes I did X Y & Z with all my kids so it's definitely OK" and then it turns out that their youngest child is 14 so even if they're faithfully remembering & repeating what their HV told them their advice will be quite out of date.

I think another part of the problem is that it depends whether you want to know "is X or Y the best choice" or "will my child survive if I do X". I often find (with HVs as well as on forums!) that I'm asking the former but getting an answer as if I'd asked the latter.

Sorry, rambling out loud now...!
