my babies father thought it was okay to plug our five month olds nose...

just to get him to sip from the

he didnt think that instead of drinking our baby would be gasping for air so he would be breathing in the water, not drinking it and ultimately could die from drowning, because of inhaling the water, or suffocating. or brain damage. who knows

the fact is that he thought this would b ok and that scares me.

should i make him take parenting classes? what do i do? im freaked by this, its really disturbing.
