Takes all sorts I guess but a woman has just sat down with a child in a buggy and a toddler scooting around. She's drinking from her baby's bottle. Is this a bit yuk or is it the latest thing? Is it replacing cocktails in jars? I couldn't grasp that either!

she's thirsty and that's all she has with her, what on earth is the problem?? confused

Or maybe she just forgot a drink for herself? Live and let live!

Or just a wee bit thirsty and without a drink of her own?

I've done this if Im super thirsty.... Squash is squash!

I've never seen that before. It would strike me as a bit odd.

Maybe she feels ill and desperately needs a drink and doesn't have anything else with her.

And the baby drinks my squash so she should bloody share!

Eh? She probably just didn't have a drink of her own so had a sip of her baby's. I don't think she's doing it as a fashion statement.

Perhaps she was thirsty hmm

I've drunk from the kids cups if I'm thirsty and forgot mine.

Does it matter?

The things people get indignant over. grin

Getthewonderwebout Sat 06-Jun-15 15:29:25

Ok well clearly I'm in the minority, but I think it looks odd and a bit gross actually. Not hard if bringing out a bottle for your child to stick a bottle under the tap, surely?

Or not wink

Most things on AIBU don't 'matter' though do they?

'Mum is thirsty shocker'. Can just see the headline.yabu.

Mammy tax. wink

OP, do you realise this is a non event? someone had a drink, you have never considered drinking from a babys bottle or are super organised and always have your own drink with you too but big deal. A drink is a drink when you are thirsty. There really is no need to make it sound like a thread proclaiming "mum in park putting vodka in her babys bottle"

I can see the headlines now -
'Mother and own child in drink receptacle sharing horror' complete with DM Sad Face.

I think it would look odd too.

It's easy to forget to take a drink though - with or without having two young kids to worry about. I'm forgetful about things like that and needs must...

cardibach Sat 06-Jun-15 15:32:43

Not hard, Getthe, no. Just possible to forget, surely! It would not suit me, I can't even do those sports tops - the drink doesn't come quickly enough. It's not odd though, really, is it?

Getthewonderwebout Sat 06-Jun-15 15:33:00

Dear God, an awful amount of snappiness. I wasn't suggesting she should have her children removed. It was a mere observation and I asked if normal.

SquigglyLine Sat 06-Jun-15 15:33:05

I have sometimes drunk from one of my kids' drinks. They have sometimes drunk from mine. In fact, the whole family will sometimes drink from the same bottle, if we're travelling light, rather than carrying 5 separate drinks bottles. Hope you survive the experience if you spot us!

I hate these judgey threads.

Makes me wonder how many threads have been started about me...

It's better than having to see her breastfeeding I suppose. Imagine if she'd done that? shock

These mothers, lousy scruffs the lot of 'em.
