Put som enappy cream on incase it makes his bottom sore and leave off fruit for a while. He is only 5 months.

i strongly doubt it will harm him.
dont be too furious at your mother. she wouldnt do anything to harm her grandson.

if he hadnt liked the tast of them, he wouldnt have swallowed them. please relax. whilst not ideal, ireally dont think it will cause him any harm whatsoever

no, and it's unlikely that he was screaming because of the seeds, more likely that he was constipated due to the rice. Why are you weaning him early?

If you've said anything hasty to your Mum, I would apologise, quick

no long term harm - maybe just a bit of loose poo for a day if he's not used to fruit. I don't think the seeds themselves will be a problem.

Leave off the ice cream too!!!!

Tangas Sat 29-Sep-07 16:42:44

Thanks for that. I got very worried, he sounded in so much pain. I suppose it was hard to get them out! Poor little mite.
AIBU to be worried about leaving him in her care again. i always tell her not to give him anything, seems as soon as my back is turned she will give him whatever she wants.

wildpatch Sat 29-Sep-07 16:47:39

it depends on your momm. but most grandmothers only want whats best for their dgrandchildren.
you may break her heart if you dont leave him with her. he is her babies baby.

Tangas Sat 29-Sep-07 16:52:17

Tissy- I didn't really have a go at my mum, just told her i wasn't very happy. she did say sorry she did't think about the seeds.

I'm weaning him as he was looking for more food after a feed and stoped sleeping throgh the night, plus he's constantly chewing his hands. I was told these are signs to start weaning. sure enough after one day of rice he was sleeping like a log again.

Rice is as well as milk, remember. TBH I think it was a fluke about sleeping longer after baby rice.

The reason he slept after rice was that it sat in his stomach like wallpaper paste. If he's hungry,just give mopre milk-lots more calories in it than in rice for starters.

when ds1 was a baby, the advice was to start at 16 weeks. but to see how baby fared. at 15 weeks ds seened to require solids, andhe loved it. at the time, the age has just been upped from 12 weeks, and some people thought i had left it to late alread. i think tanga is doing the right hting by her baby, looking at what he needs, rather than some arbitrarily set time limti, set by an impersonal big brother government

oh fgs.

AitchTwoOh Sat 29-Sep-07 17:02:56

that not to OP, btw. i'm sure the berries won't be harming him. smile

SuperMonkey Sat 29-Sep-07 17:07:20

Tangas - agree with wildpatch - I'm sure your instinct is right about weaning. My 5 month DS is eating and loving a whole variety of fruit, some agree with him and some don't. I'm sure the berries haven't harmed him smile.

beansprout Sat 29-Sep-07 17:08:45

Don't we all pass seeds? I didn't think the were that digestable, it's just that our poo is not subject to the same scrutiny! grin

beansprout Sat 29-Sep-07 17:09:27

You are very anti-government today!! grin

Tangas Sat 29-Sep-07 17:09:29

Thanx wildpatch.. I was a bit scared of weaning him as its a big step. But he's a big boy and had been looking for food for a good few weeks, plus everyone had been advising me to take the plunge.
once I had done it he seemed so much more content! Maybe it was just a fluke that he started sleeping through the night again. But my heart tells me it was because of the rice. grin

Tangas Sat 29-Sep-07 17:14:48

Any way we are always beeing told to do things by the latest gidelines. People always saying "They say you should do it like this" ECT...
Someone pls tell me exactly who "THEY" are??? hmm

beansprout Sat 29-Sep-07 17:15:38

The people conducting the latest research into such things? hmm

AitchTwoOh Sat 29-Sep-07 17:15:52

oh GOD. They are the World Health Organisation. A bunch of idiots, clearly. hmm

Tangas Sat 29-Sep-07 17:23:11

Ah Beansprout, but do THEY actually know whats best for our babbies? After all "Mother knows best", I'm sure you'd agree. smile

beansprout Sat 29-Sep-07 17:25:47

Not really, why should I know everything just because I have given birth? I try to make informed decisions about ds, and I don't have a problem with getting that information from a range of places - people I know, professionals, MN, WHO, govt advice etc.
