The next time you log on to social media, try to think about what's best for your child, Greenberg encourages, not you.
"'Everybody's doing it' is never a good reason to post something. There may be pressure to show off your baby, but you don't have to join that club. It's always your decision," she says.
Privacy setting pluses
If you opt for privacy, it'll take some work.
First, whenever you post pictures of your child, make sure to turn off the geo-tagging feature so people can't see where you are, says Adam Levin, chairman and co-founder of Credit.com.
"As much as it flies in the face Facebook's show-it-all culture, avoid posting information that could help a stalker, kidnapper or identity thief locate your child-playgrounds, schools, sports facilities, pictures that make it possible to find your home," he says.
Names and nicknames should be off-limits, too.
"It's easy enough to tell your friends and family that you avoid identifying your child online," Levin says.
The problem with privacy settings
You can have the most secure password and the strictest privacy settings in the world, but once you share your pictures with others, it's their privacy settings you need to worry about.
"Whether or not you should post pictures of your children comes down to how much you actually know about what you're putting out there," says Sanford. "Unfortunately, it's impossible to know what kind of privacy settings your friends and family have."
