What parenting advice/gospel did you choose NOT to follow? Why? Are you pleased with your choice?

Just today I read on Baby WebMD that I should avoid taking my infant outside between 10 AM and 4 PM so that she doesn't get any direct sunlight. Really?! And I'm not supposed to nap with her on me anywhere, ever. Really?! I've been reading lots of other - often conflicting - advice about parenting.
So I'm wondering, MeFi Parents Who Have Come Before Me, is there parenting gospel that you chose to ignore? Why? Were you happy with your choice?
