Sooo here's the thing. I love my mother, we have a special bond that I don't know of anyone else having with their mother. She did a wonderful job raising me and my sister. She would be the first to tell you that we never once talked back to her or tried to sneak out or felt like we couldn't talk to her. Whenever she told us we couldn't do something or go somewhere we never got the excuse "because I said so." She always gave us a legitamate reason for why she said no. I have an always will respect her. Well heres the thing, while I'm at work she watches my son...for free.... I have tried to pay her but she refuses. She has been wonderful. My SO is away in the army and she helps me anyway she can. Well my son is 3 months old, and she told me the other day that she has started feeding him rice cereal mixed with my breastmilk, making it really soupy, and feeding it too him. And feeding him mashed bananas. I don't agree with this, I think he's too young. And it kinda upset me that she didn't ask me first. I asked her if she thought that maybe he might be a little young and she said that thats what she did with me when I was 3 months. All the advise she has given me so far has been golden. But for some reason this one is bothering me. Does anyone think that this is too young? He has been EBF since he was born. Do you think this could do him harm? I turned out ok, so why am I freaking?
