The sneaky thing I do behind my sister's back when I babysit for her...
I babysit my nephew, he is just over a year. My sister sends his lunch and she cuts it up large. She told me to leave it that way because the doctor said he should be eating big pieces by now.
Well, I cut them up smaller.
Everytime he eats the big pieces, he gags and chokes on them and I am afraid something bad will happen. He vomited 2x and after the last time I decided to go behind her back and cut his food up small.
I did try and tell her that I didn't think he could handle the bigger pieces yet, because he was choking on them. She told me her doctor said a lot of people don't cut up food for babies at all (which I don't believe) and that a lot of people no longer use baby food. Well... idk about that. She also told me that her doctor said he should be transitioning to fully solid foods, without cutting up.
idk... It's her kid. But while he is in my care, if I feel something is unsafe, I will make it safe. And I don't tell her just to keep the peace. No harm done right?
