So dd is nearly 7 months and will not eat anything I give her. Goes in mouth and out again.
Mil babysits and announces how much she loved her farleys rusks. (Mil brought them round and gave them without checking with me.)

I love rusks. Warm with milk. Put one at the bottom of a bowl or cornflakes and warm it up.... Thank me later.

She's saving her first proper food swallow for you grin

Oh... And naughty mil!

First foods are not designed to be eaten, they are designed so that your baby can experience a new texture in her mouth. They all spit the food out. Rusks are sweet, that's why they like them. It's naughty of your mil to do this though, veg first.

V. Naughty MIL!

Anyway, MILs lie! Mine is adamant that my DCs have slept through every night she has babysat them overnight. <hysterical laughter>

My MIL lies because she wants to be trusted with them again. My DC1 is old enough to tell me that she didn't sleep through.

(Disclaimer: my PILs have my DCs for a sleepover once a year)

It may not be true!

MIL is out of order. Bread sticks if she wants to give LO something to hold/gum that are a bit harder if teething.

Makes good finger food with dips on as well - my DD loves em smile

I didn't know you shouldn't give 7 month olds rusks blush.

I am sure I did. I gave them healthy homemade stuff most the time but I would give them the occasional rusk biscuit if I was out and about. I am not that much of an oldie. Maybe the MIL didnt know either.

Mmmmm rusks. I gave all mine rusks.Something else I did wrong according to MN baby feeding laws.

I've got a confession, my dgs always eats weetabix when i have him, and spits it out when mum makes it, might be the spoonful of sugar that makes the difference.His not a baby anymore though.
