  • shes the mom,shes needs to learn on her own,its so annoying to have moms tell you how to do things,if shes wrong or not isnt the point,unless shes feeding the baby poison stay out of it.

  • she going to kill the baby. At that age, babies should be only drinking milk. OMG! tell her to stop it rite now.

  • An infant who does not get proper nutrition can become brain damaged. The child is also now at a high risk for food allergies. The mother is incredibly ignorant and should not be allowed to care for this child with getting educated.

  • She could kill the baby. It is hurting the baby and the baby could have lifelong problems. Print out info from the internet or get other info to give to her. If she isn't going to stop report her to cps.

  • she is not gonna kill the baby,shes gonna upset her stomach and she'll have to deal with that and call the doctor and then he'll put her in her place,let her be she needs to learn

  • I heard of a situation where there were vegan parents who only fed their baby apple juice, no formula and no breast milk. The baby died, such a sad, disgusting story that could have been avoided.
    If I were you, I'd go buy a baby book for first time mothers and give it to her as a gift. Hopefully she'll look through it and find out what works best for babies. Good luck on encouraging her kindly in the right direction!

  • She is the mom, at a month old my doctor TOLD me to give my son rice cereal, so maybe her doc told her to. I know it's not always wise to listen to doctors, and I'm not saying it's good to give a 1 month old rice cereal. I'm just saying she is mommy, she isn't doing anything illegal, and if you say anything at ALL, just politely tell her the risks.

  • tell her your going to report her to DCF babies stomachs arent ready for anything more then breastmilk or formula at that age and she can do serious harm to the childs intestines just because shes a first time mom doesnt give her a excuse to be stupid everyone with children was a first time mom at one point doesnt mean they do stupid things im a first time mom and i didnt start my ds on food that early she needs to brighten up or have the child taken because she obviously doesnt know what shes doing
