to think that giving a 5.5 month old McDonalds is verging on abuse?

So a friend of mine has just posted on FB about their not yet 6 month old baby eating her first McDonalds!! FFS!!!!

This is utterly vile right???

Bit insulting for those of us who actually were abused to compare it to sucking on a cold chip.

cittigirl · 13/10/2018 12:16

Not the best food for a almost 6 mth old but hardly crack cocaine. Chill!

Busyworkingbee · 13/10/2018 12:16

It's really not abuse though! It doesn't bother me how other people bring up their own kids. Aslong as they are warm, fed and loved.

ladyvimes · 13/10/2018 12:16

To be fair it might have been a suck on a chip or a lick of milkshake. I hardly think a 5 month old is gonna manage a Big Mac and fries!

AudaciousCockerel · 13/10/2018 12:16

Bloody hell, get a grip. If you think that’s abusive then you need to pull your head out of your arse and have a think about all the utterly horrendous things that ACTUALLY constitute abuse.

FFS... Hmm

PerryPerryThePlatypus · 13/10/2018 12:17

Not the best thing but hardly abusive. I'd probably roll my eyes and keep scrolling.

Blackoutblinds · 13/10/2018 12:17

No that is not abuse.

FissionChips · 13/10/2018 12:18

Fish fingers and cucumber sticks most likely. Yabu.

Butterymuffin · 13/10/2018 12:18

Abuse is a strong word. But I agree it's a) bloody stupid and b) poor parenting.

Partyfops · 13/10/2018 12:18

The child had its own happy meal and was chomping on a chicken nugget!

I hardly think a few chips and maybe a bite of a burger is abuse. I'd be surprised if she ate more than a bit of a french fry at that age.

Just because it's not something you would do doesn't make it abusive (and I think there are plenty of people who would happily have taken this kind of 'abuse' v the horrific stuff that happened to them as a child).

JacquesHammer · 13/10/2018 12:18

No. Not abuse.

Crass comparison.

SemperIdem · 13/10/2018 12:19

I think it’s a bit shit to feed such a young baby that. But it isn’t abuse, no.

Boredboredboredboredbored · 13/10/2018 12:19

Ffs get a grip

Caprisunorange · 13/10/2018 12:19

It’s not that bad. Tbh if a baby is eating chicken nuggets at 5.5 months it’s pretty advanced. Most are gumming on a breadstick until it dissolved at that age

Cornettoninja · 13/10/2018 12:19

It’s not something most people who make a Kodak moment but abuse? No. No it isn’t.

Redglitter · 13/10/2018 12:20

Neither vile or abuse really.

As pp said it's more likely she's had a suck of a chip or something rather than sitting down to a happy meal.

Busyworkingbee · 13/10/2018 12:20

Still not abuse! The child is probably well loved. Why do some parents judge others so much!
If she was getting hammered and smoking around the child, I would agree.

pannikin · 13/10/2018 12:20

Yeah, cos a 5 and a half month old baby is capable of devouring a whole chicken nuggets and chips meal - I struggled to get DS to eat a spoonful of porridge until he was about 8 months!

Grimbles · 13/10/2018 12:20


Why didnt you say? Call social services immediately!

Nissemand · 13/10/2018 12:20

There's no way the baby ate a whole happy meal.

It's no different to all the children whose first foods were pizza/chips/nuggets/curry swiped from someone else's plate.

There's nothing toxic in a McDonald's chicken nugget. Hmm

LARLARLAND · 13/10/2018 12:20

Who the fuck gives a five month old baby a Maccies Confused

TreMonet · 13/10/2018 12:21

Oh ffs 🙈

Fiffyshadesofgreymatter · 13/10/2018 12:21

It's disgusting. A baby should not be eating shit like that. I agree with you OP.

And her posting it on Facebook like she's proud shed given her baby fast food? Well, she'll be a great parent, won't she.
