Thumbs down Make them stop!!!!



My dh keeps trying to give the baby a "taste" of this and that. Yesterday is was chocolate frosting, today it was soup broth. Now why is that necessary!?! She is only 2 months old and is perfectly content with her boobie juice We go to my mom's last night and she starts saying that if I give her cereal her colic will go away. Of course dh was pleased to hear this. I then inform my mom that the reason every child of hers has allergies is most likely from giving foods too early. I told them that for New Years she can have a touch of baby cereal but not a day sooner. Why must everyone rush it?

my husband does the same thing. Aidan is barely 3 mos old and he has already given him strawberry icecream. Our family has a strawberry allergy and he just does it anyway.

Ugh. I hate that. We went to the mall with DH's dad and step-mom once when Bram was like 2 months old and I don't know what in the WORLD possesed me to leave them alone with him for even a second.... but DH and I left them in the food court for like 5 minutes and when we came back his step-mom was feeding him some of her ICE CREAM CONE. Not only was she feeding my 2 month old DAIRY but she had already licked all over it and I barely know them (they just don't care to see us much) and like I really care for my infant to swap spit with her.

Re: Make them stop!!!!

That is one of those things that DRIVES me nuts! Most of my SIL's do it with their own kids. I've become the ***** (well, for more than just this), but because I don't allow it. Our parenting styles are a lot different. I'm not going to judge them for doing it to their own child, but PLEASE don't do it to mine!!

(Especially because my ds has SO many allergies---they just don't know what is in everything like I do!)

AHHHHH, From like 4 mts old my inlaws were trying to give Cayden sips of pepsi, tea, candy, ect! I had so many fights with them over it!!! My God, It has gotten so bad. Donuts and cheese puffs, instant everything!!! Am I the only one with common sence enough to see a child has no need for this crap. This is why kids have allergies, cancer, disease, diabetes, ect. So many preservitives. Diet soda she says, that's worse! Let's start him out early on his way to cancer! I just wanted to keep him a booby boy as long as poss but it was down hill from there. I feal you'r pain mommas!
