Babies Born Scared of Spiders
  When scientists showed babies simple representations of 
  spiders, and also more jumbled images, the babies spent 
  3 times as long looking at the "spiders".  This suggests 
  babies are born with a "mental template" for spider 
  shapes, and potentially for other things that may harm them.

Baby cough medicines pulled
  Cough remedies aimed at very young children are to be 
  removed from shelves amid fears of accidental overdose. 
  Parents are being urged to stick to paracetamol and 
  ibuprofen medicines, vapour rubs and simple cough 
  syrup such as glycerol, honey or lemon.

Wheeze 'link' to baby milk powder
  Prolonged exposure to baby milk powder increases 
  the risk of breathing problems, including wheezing 
  and breathlessness, a study has found. It looked at 
  170 Thai factory workers who made the powder, but the 
  risk could also apply to nannies.  Mothers and babies 
  are safe, because they have relatively little exposure.
