Good afternoon ladies!

I have a question concerning my pets and my soon to be born baby.

I was told that a dog can be supportive though it all, but I was told the opposite of cats...

I have a kitten and worry that I may have to train him to be an outdoor cat for a few years until the baby can be around him.

Do I have anything to worry about with the cat harming the newborn? Or am I being told fables?
