There was a girl i went to school with, well she had a baby in june or july. something like that so hes like 8 months old. she lets him eat pudding, twinkies, suckers, ring pops, popsicles icecream, etc. and pancakes.
he's teething, so i guess its alright that he's eating some of that stuff. but i personally think he shouldnt be eating all that.
well she, her so and the baby came over yesterday cos he was going to try to work on my brakes well, the baby didnt have a coat on, and its the beginning of spring in toled, by the lake, so its still cold. he had some pjs on but the sleeves were rolled up.
i guess i really dont have any right to say anything but, am i wrong to think that shes not being a good parent for all of this??

a lot of what she is giving her baby is nothing but pure sugar. That's not good for his new teeth coming in nor for his nutrition. I myself only give my older children (ages 2 and up) suckers on rare occasions. You can think of her what you will but just remember you will get to do what you feel is right with your own baby.

If you don't like seeing her do this with her baby. Maybe you could suggest other things to help her baby with teething. Also remind her to dress her baby as she dresses. So if she had a jacket or coat on then the baby should have one as well. Or even a blanket.

These are just my thoughts. I have ran into questionable parenting myself. I just make minor suggestions.

she was wearing a jacket too thats what really got me!

I know that no one is perfect and that this is my first baby so i shouldnt really judge, but a lot of ppl (in my opinion) should have taken a parenting class to be allowed to have their babies.
and im saying this about my own brother too. i love him to death, but im not sure him or his SO are capible of being parents. they are both VERY immature (his SO broke up with him for a few hours bcz shes not ready to be a mother, the baby is 5 months old!)

Who told you pancakes, pudding, and ice cream were bad for kids??

Pancakes are in fact good for you and pudding and ice cream have alot of fat content in them which is good for growing kids, my sons doctor said because he is such a picky eater if he wants ice cream its a good source of milk/fat because most pudding and ice cream is made with full fat milk. Not to be given to them all day of course.

...and all kids like sweets, its up to the mother how much pops they give their children.

I agree with you 100%. Not only are those things bad for your health (all an 8mo. old should be eating is baby food, or the home cooked equivalent) dairy products are also not suggested until the 1st birthday. As for the coat, or lack there of, there is just no excuse. The general rule of thumb is that a baby needs one more layer of clothing than an adult.

yeah those are all good sources of milk fat. But not for an 8 month old baby. Their tummy's aren't ready to process all that heavy fat. That's why baby's don't start on whole milk until they are a year old. A baby that age should still be getting all his fat from breast milk or formula. They get some extra vitimans and minerals through baby food. But their main diet at that age is still the formula or breast milk. Other baby foods are just for practice at this age. There are other foods that are baby friendly for teething. They making teething biscuts and puffs are soft that disolve almost as soon as there is spit on them.

I also didn't realize that he was under the age of one

But rule of thumb is u dress your baby how you would be dressed... they have the same body temp as us.... look it up

Yeah you dress them in the same amount of layers as you wear. They have a smaller body surface so they can actually over heat faster then we can.

well my two year old hates pancakes but my friends daughter eats them everyday for breakfast... most resposible parents will look at sugar content but they do have sugar free, high fat ice cream... most things, including fruits have high sugar content,

It comes down to this... either people don't care, or have no common sense.

The best thing I've found for teething is putting a ice cube in a little mesh feeder. She will hold it and suck on it like crazy. Pretty soon she will be smiling again and feeling better.

My dh's idea of helping her to teeth was to give her an ice cream sandwich

No 8 month old should be eating twinkies, pudding, ice cream, ring pops or suckers. They are to young for milk products, and even if they weren't there are other sources of fat that are healthy.

Jenn - there are also those people who are lazy. Mom may be giving the baby what she is having b/c she doesn't want to prepare something different.

That's a good point. what is the mom eating?? does she eat as bad as her baby? that's scary to think how many cavities that baby will have and possibly be overweight. I think that some people are just very ignorant and don't care how they affect another person's life.

any doctor that recommends that pancakes and pudding and ice cream is healthy is NUTS. if you want your child to be diabetic, go for it. i don't think your necessarily right in saying she's a bad parent, but you've definitely caught on to the fact that she isn't making wise choices.

FYI, the natural sugars in fruit are COMPLETELY different than the high fructose corn syrup in pancakes, ice cream, and junk of that nature. Is it ok to give this to your child once in a while? Why not...but if yoiu're doing it on a daily basis, I'd put money on it that you're child will be overweight which causes TONS of other health issues, diabetes being the #1 concern. Furthermore, sugar free products contain aspartame, which is a cancer causing agent. IMO giving kids junk food is the #1 cause of "picky eaters". Of course they won't want to eat anything healthy if you give them that junk. It's time to see a dietrician if your kids aren't eating properly.

From everything I've read, you should dress a baby one layer warmer in the winter if you're outside and one layer cooler in the summer. There bodies are very sensitive to temperature.
