After all the things that we have fed DS in 3 years of feeding therapy, I don't give a rats @ss what is given to my 3rd kid. I definitely have a much different perspective on food now. She can have whatever we are eating. And if that is a purple popsicle and she wants a lick, so be it. The world won't end because she had some purple food coloring.
I feel the same way about DD. While I'm not going to give her a piece of cake, if she finds some cake crumbs on the floor, whatever. The other day I was making cupcakes and had icing sugar on my hands. DD picked up some cat litter off the floor, and I dug it out of her mouth with my icing sugared fingers.

Glad to know I'm not the only one who has dug cat litter out of a mouth. I always feel so guilty when it happens, but the cat gets it EVERYWHERE!

Re: My MIL Just Tried...

My MIL cornered me when DS1 was about 3 weeks old and DH was sleeping and tried to get me to give him a bottle of formula with some cereal in it. She said, "After all if all you had all day was milk wouldn't you be hungry?" Um well no not when I was a baby. It was just really sneaky the way she tried to convince me and waited until DH was out of the room, knowing I was tired and frazzled with a newborn. She just honestly thinks that BF is not only unnecessary but inferior and of course we are just too stupid to know better. She's tried many times to slip them food after we have said no. I don't mind too many grandma treats but don't undermine us in front of them.

By no means am I super fanatical about what she eats (heck, I give her bites of ice cream all the time, and she's eaten cake, too), but Mountain Dew is just too far! I won't even drink that stuff,

In a normal baby, yeah, Mountain Dew would tick me off too.

FTR: My Dad is more than a decade older than my Mom and his generation just did things differently. He has a good heart but some of the stuff he suggests makes me wonder how in the world he raised 7 children into adulthood!
Pork chops for teething made me LOL!! (It probably did feel good!!)

i can totally relate to this!!! cheetos was a big favorite around here too!!! I have a picture of my dd holding a cheeto in each hand dipping it in chocolate pudding. anything in the mouth was success! red licorice for strengthening. so different from how i started introducing her to solids...pureed organic produce from the farmers market.
