No. Never.

Would we pick apart what things are ok for a boy to do or have? I get him cars but not trucks, because that's just to much. And he has too many red and blue shirts even though that's...

I think they told you a load of bunk. I'd go with the many other things you read vs what your particular midwife practice said.

Did you use a bunch of other positions that didn't seem to work?
