My baby sitter gave my ds 4 packs of Milky Way Magic stars on Saturday, she said he was crying when he finished each pack, and once they were all done she gave him a pack of MilkyBar Buttons, which he didn't want. He hasn't had Magic Stars before, but the buttons were ones i had in the cupboard. My ds is almost 10 months old and he has had chocolate before - the buttons were his.. but 4 packs? aibu for being a bit annoyed, even although i have given him choc?
I suppose if he suffered no ill effects then you can't be too cross but, like you, I wouldn't be happy either. I'd have thought it was just plain common sense that four packets was way too much. Even I wouldn't eat four packets and I'm a regular greedy guts.
Perhaps in future you should specify what he can and can't have and in what quantities.
I remember a friend of mine giving my son a huge chocolate easter egg just before supper when he was 18 months old and being really annoyed. I'm happy now if this happens but he's five, I wouldn't have been at all happy about the babysitter though
Actually there are hardly any in those packets so if you joined them all up (all 4 packs) they'd barely make a normal sized bar of chocolate.
That aside, I would certainly make clear to your babysitter what is or isn't acceptable, and tbh if someone looking after my children tld me they wouldn't stop crying so they fed them chocolate I'd be looking for other childcare.
Its a bit much but I am guessing she was only being kind, in her own way she was offering comfort to a distressed child. Not everyone gets the fact that kids can be quite clever when it comes to getting sweets and treats...
Thedevil is right, some of those packets have about 4 or five in that's all. I wouldn't worry about it if you tell her nicely I'm sure it won't happen again. It is hard for me to comment as I am a complete chocoholic as is my DS, wonder where he gets that from
