Forced to eat own spit up?

My SIL just had a baby boy and isnt wasteful about ANYTHING. When he spits up on the burp cloth, she puts it back in the bottle and says its a waste. I think its disgusting, and maybe a form of chid abuse. should i say something?

  • I would tell her that is child abuse. Making a child eat their own spit up/vomit, is abuse. How stupid. I can't believe someone has even THOUGHT about doing that. That is not only disgusting but degrading. Ask her when she throws up after eating, if she would like to eat it?

  • yes. she is forcing her child to eat vomit. it contains stomach acids that can damage the throat. she is a sick person, report her if you have to.

  • I think that is really gross. Would she eat her own puke? I think not. Ask her.

  • That is wrong, she sure the hell wouldn't eat her own puke. Yeah that is child abuse.

  • That is NASTY! Give her a copy of the book "A child called It" maybe that will get her to stop. (the mom in that book makes her child eat his vomit too)

  • Yes, you should say something. Why doesn't she eat her own poop? It's really wasteful to flush it down the toilet.

  • that is awful. ask her if she vomits if she is going to eat it again so she isn't wasting food. you need to say something to her or to her significant other if there is one.
