How do you all express your wants with your baby with family without causing hard feelings.
Me, LO, and DH were to dinner with some of DH friends. She was holding my LO and proceeded to feed him a spoon full of icecream and whipped cream. I immediately shouted and she was very offended and told me she fed her daughter milk at 7 months. OK my DS is 5 1/2 months, breastfed, and I just started to let him experiment with cereal. I was incredibly upset for reasons beyond icecream to a 5 month old? I would have asked even if he was 5 years old. And from what I'm learning, no dairy until after 1 year old.
So this is got me worried. We will be staying with the in-laws possibly for a month or longer. How am I going to tactfully enforce my raising desires for my DS? Is this situation going to drive me to insanity. Another piece to the situation is that we currently live 6 hours from both families so I have had no help or no company with DS. Is it normal to miss DS when other's are holding him?
