Is it ok that I give my child a hot dog??

He likes them, but I am not sure if I should or not. And if so, can I put ketchup and mustard on it or just ketchup or just mustard?

  • And no one bashed anyone either.

    You ladies need to learn the difference between a judgement (i.e. bashing) and just stating an opinion people might not agree with.

    Hot dogs are gross = not a judgement (well, maybe a judgement against hot dogs)

    Mothers who feed their kids hot dogs are horrible = THAT'S a judgement. No one said anything of the sort here.

    When people pull the "stop judging me" card when it isn't warranted, it just let's me know what I'm saying falls on deaf ears and it's time to go lol.

    Thanks for those that appreciated my opinion for what it was! :-)

  • Yes its ok to feed your child Hot dogs- Jeeze, what kind of world do we live in today when we would deprive our children an all American Classic like the hot dog-
    Ketchup and mustard is fine too!
    don't panic over what you feed your kids- providing your not letting them live off of cokes and potato chips your doing FINNNEE!

  • How old is your son? I gave my son cut up hot dogs once he was able to chew them. My mother on the other hand thought I was just asking for him to choke to death! She hated that I gave them to him. But I did and that's that. :)

    Just kidding...

    Of course it's ok! It's your child, you can feed him whatever you want.

  • At what age can you give hot dogs? I want to eventually give my dd a hot dog every once in a while.
