Curious to know whose baby is having Easter eggs this year.

My DD is 8 months and 2 people have bought her Easter eggs. She won be eating these for a bit, mainly because I am terrified of her choking but also I think she's a little young for chocolate but I know it wouldn't harm her. It just irritates me that people feel the need to include her in Easter this year, she's just a baby!

It's just a gift, say thank you and be gracious. Then eat it when your DD is in bed.

She is 6 months, I am eating them for her. One of them was a mini eggs one! Errr...

DS is 10mo, he was given one of those Cadbury Easter bunnies filled with buttons. I ate it though. Never intended for him to have any really. Maybe he could have had a button or 2. But I'm greedy.

He has had chocolate before, DH gave him half a finger of a Twirl once shock c'est la vie grin

My 13 month old has recieved about ten chocolate eggs. We have said thank you, put them in the fridge for us! He can have a teeny bit but honestly I do wish people would buy a small toy/book etc instead.

People have insisted on buying dd (7mnths) Easter eggs. Sweet to think of her & by default she will get some when I eat them grin clutching at straws justifying eating her sweets

Are these babies your first? I was like this with dc1, and dc2 was 5mo at easter and whilst he was given eggs that we mainly ate, once he was 6mo he had a taste of chocolate along with other foods.

Dc1 we didnt let her have juice of any sort til she was 3, dc2 had his first drink of squash at 13mo.

Its chocolate. Unclench.

So what if they are the first? If you were like it with your first why can't we be like it with ours!
DD is 16m and will be having a bit of chocolate but not much... She's got such a sweet tooth and she'd eat it all day if she could; plus she hates having her teeth brushed so we won't go too mad..

My parents bought one for my four month old grin he is breastfed so I will have to eat it for him so he can have some chocolatey milk...

Id just love to see some responses from people with a second or more dc. Not being shirty or anything, its quite amusing. I was like this, I get most people are like this with their firsts.

But since having a second I see how daft I was being.

DC1 his first year with an Easter egg he was 2yr10m

DC2 this year will be his first with an egg and he will be 2yr2m

We wouldn't have got DC2 one this young if it wasn't that his big brother will get one again (he's now nearly 4)

Anything under 1 I wouldn't even consider. Over 1 then I would if they will see an older sibling with one.

I got my DS 15mo a Kinder Bueno lamb soft toy which comes with (what looks like) a tiny mini bar of chocolate. He can have that spread out over Easter. He has had tastes of chocolate before, but not a whole bar. I know my dad has got him an egg, but he doesn't know I'll be the one eating it grin

My 9 month old (3rd child) has a couple of eggs, she'll get little bits over the weekend, it's nice to include her.

Penny is right for me, DD1 didn't get chocolate till she was 18 months!

People don't necessarily know the guidelines about babies and sugar or think about choking, they'll just think "Ooh, I bet Debsy's little girl would love a Peppa Pig egg!" It's a kind thought so just say thanks and accept.

Then eat them for her. It's a sacrifice parents have to make. <sigh>

You can always pass them on to a neighbour or friend if you don't want them.

Pfb but also cmpa and soy allergic. No egg from us and is nearly 10months old. No chocolate and if even if she gets given something dairy and soy free, I will eat it for her...

NFmama Fri 25-Mar-16 21:51:45

My 12 month old has received about 4 eggs, much to the delight of her 5 year old brother...wink

doleritedinosaur Fri 25-Mar-16 21:52:16

Mines a year but he's got CMPA so no chocolate anyway but I have got a bit sick of everyone going omg give him chocolate.
Got his whole life to eat whatever crap he wants. He prefers meat anyway so if it was an egg made out of steak he'd be so happy!

I've got him an Easter book & a magazine with toy from his favourite show. Grandparents have got him chicks/lamb toys which he's really happy with.

I just eat all the chocolate he's given now.

Usual - I'm chilled the fuck out, cheers though love.

Yes first child. Also told these people that she isn't having eggs this year so they have bought these knowing that.

I have 2 young dc. Both have been given eggs. Dedicated mother that I am I will be eating them on their behalf. I may have already started Told people not to buy chocolate but they won't listen!

I think people are just trying to be nice buying littlies eggs. You get to eat the chocolate though so win -win as far as I see it! grin
