Pesky Grandparents scuppering weaning!?
I love my Mum to bits, but the one thing that really annoys me is when she feeds foods to my LOs that I would never give them, usually behind my back, or ask me if she can give them a food that is off limits, because 'its a treat' or 'its ok if Grannie is here' (usually within earshot of my eldest) then make me seem like the bad guy or give me the 'when you were younger...' speech! We stayed over last weekend and she gave my eldest a few liquorice allsorts in the morning! I was livid as I do not give her sweets! I only found out as my eldest told me, I caught her giving my youngest a chip too! I have in the past told her that I want her to respect my wishes and that i feel that she is hindering the rules I have put in place for my LO's food wise. luckily my eldest will start to say to her Grannie 'No Mummy won't allow me that' but she will over rule me and tell her that its ok! ' Sigh! I was wondering have others experienced this (most probably!) and how have you coped with this, or are planning to cope with it when your LOs are a little older.
