Venting...! Just on facebook looking at photos of a friends LO who is now 11wks. 2 wks ago her status proudly declared that she had just given her baby her first taster of foods rusks with milk and she loved it! 9 weeks old! This baby is breastfed, a good weight and has slept all night from 10pm since 6wks so its not like she is hoping food equals a good nigjt even! She commented It was cute and such a big girl and 6 people liked it, I'm gobsmacked. Feeding solids to a 9wk old, yes I was a first time mum at 22 and didn't know a babies top from its bottom but I knew food was 6mths, back in 2004, not 9wks!!! Did she not see the age on the box? And I do get early weaning but am led to believe that even that is 17wks on,my 2nd has reflux and we started at 22wks so I am shocked by this. Then to cap it all off, she let her baby have first set of jabs when she had a cold/flu thing! Why not wait? It doesn't matter if you are late, LOs immune system was already underfire! Are people really this clueless?
