    Default Toddler sharing

    Sharing is something that you want to encourage. I think it's great that my 29 month old wants to share with her 7 month old little sister.

    The problem is what she wants to share with her. BLS is one thing, but being given a toasted multigrain bagel with butter is quite another! It's not like we're leaving them unattended, but as any Mom can attest to, 2 year olds are freakishly fast.

    For Mom's with babes close in age, how did you stop them from sharing inappropriate foods?

    I have tried to teach my Step daughter about choking with her dolls and such, but I still find her giving my 7m daughter bread ect. So I guess I'm in the same place!

    We just have explained over and over again that he has to ask us before he shares and most of the time he does. It's less of an issue now that Levi is getting older, but a couple weeks ago Lance gave him a bunch of nuts. He asked to nurse looking like a chipmunk, and spit out 2 cashews and an almond.
