  • i went to golden corral today with family and gave them to my daughter she loves them, and i heard this older lady talk to her husband about how she "Cannot believe a mother would do that..."
    my DD even looks a bit older than she really is it pissed me off and made me feel like a bad mother...

  • Absolutely. With my youngest I never even used baby food, he just ate a mashed up version of what I was eating. It was SOO much easier. With my oldest, I was very strict about "baby food only". I guess you live and learn. :)

    Don't pay attention to people like that. THere is always going to be someone who has an opinion about what you're doing as a parent. Just do what you feel is right for your child.

  • That "woman" obviously has no life if she has nothing better to do than worry about what you put in your child's body. In my opinion, I see nothing wrong with it. My 8 month old eats almost everything we do in her own portion size. You're her mom, you know what's best :)

  • You know what is funny though, just a few tables away from us there was a NEWBORN.. i asked how old she was she was 4 weeks and the mom was giving her DD piza, soda through a straw ice cream etc and this lady said NOTHING to her...

  • Lol maybe she was talking about the other baby and not you then!

  • Yes if it were smashed and cool enough so it doesn't burn. Sweet potatoes are good for you they have a lot of good vitamines.

    Answer by Bernie65 at 2:04 AM on Aug. 23, 2009

  • The only thing I would worry about is if they use honey in their sweet potatoes. If not, then I see nothing wrong with it.
