Sorry not a weaning question but I'm in here a lot at the minute I can sometimes be a lone voice in this house, so as we approach Christmas what's my argument (aside from NO) when DSD or DSSs try and give DS chocolate? Not a lot of support from DH with regards anything they do really. I know I'll get "oh its only the once, special occasion" blah de blah. Or is this just me being first time mum worrying about nothing??
I think it's one of those things that tends to change between the PFB and other children. My eldest didn't have chocolate until a chocolate birthday cake when she turned one. Younger one has chocolate muffin fed to him by said eldest at about 7 months. Either way, a choc button or two doesn't matter much in the long run, and is quite different to munching on curly wurlys in the pushchair on the way to school.
I do agree though that at this age, they have no idea so why give them sweets so early and I would discourage it but not freak out if a few buttons were given. My gripe would more be that if you have decided no chocolate, everyone follows it. People sneakily giving my baby something I have said no to, that would make me pretty pissed off.
