So here is a run down of what happened to me today. Went to my mom's work with my baby for her birthday cake. I used to work there, so I know this girl there. She wanted to hold him. No harm in that. But I was afraid of this happening. Sooo, she was like "do you want some cake?" I knew she would do that, so I tried to be nice and said, "Say no you don't! (Giggle)." I said stuff like that THREE times and she didn't listen. She was not only trying to give him frosting but trying to put actual cake in his mouth. I got so mad and frustrated I even said no one listens to me, and I know she knew I was mad, and I know everyone in the room could tell I was pretty upset. I got sympathy from everyone else there, they all understood, and they would not do that since I am his mother saying no. His grandpa has been giving him stuff like whipped cream here and there, and I won't lie, I have a couple times. I avoid it as much as possible though because one, I don't want to start solids until 6 months if not later, and two, I don't want him to have a sweet tooth like I do and turn out fluffy like me! So, anyways, has anyone dealt with a similar situation? How do you deal? It is so frustrating, and it's also so stressful on me. I was warn out after that because I'm still new to this mom thing and I got so emotional! Luckily my son didn't take most of it, he just did the tongue thing and spit it out, but still, why shove cake down a baby's throat? And what is it with people wanting to give baby's every little thing off their plate? I feel like no one understands me because all of these people did formula and started solids at 3 months if not earlier. What a looooong day. I even cried because I was so upset. It's almost like it's coming down to letting no one hold him and being mean and saying, "I said NO." I feel like a black sheep in my circle of friends.
