What is it with people, aunties, uncles, total strangers, all offering advice and asking me inane questions!!
Beta you should not be breast feeding her still. It is not enough..Children bite and well you should not. Hello!! She has teeth and has not bitten me even once. And yes I know it is not enough, but it is her top comfort food right now and all of us have our comfort foods, so why not my daughter? And I will wean her off naturally, thank you very much.
Oh my god! She is so fair! Or you are really lucky she is sooo fair..Or Is your husband fair? NO NO Not me nor my husband (ex) are fair, but hell can she not resemble other members of my family? And these are my relatives asking this stupid question. Lucky??!!
You haven’t given her sweets yet!! Not introduced her to sugar?? What about salt? I don’t see any reason why I should introduce her to sugar or chocolates. Its too early. And a doc asking me this question is really dumb. Its scientifically proven that if you do not introduce salt and sugar for the first 3 years, the kidneys develop really well and sugar makes the kids hyperactive. They seem to derive some perverse satisfaction that I have introduced salt only because my kiddo happened to sample idli’s and loved it.
OMG you do not give her cows milk? What do you give her then? Again scientifically proven that cows milk should not be introduced for the first 2 years and with all the cows being injected with hormones and my kiddo is lactose intolerant any ways
What do you feed her to make her cheeks so round? Guess that its genetic didn’t occur to any of them!
Why has she lost so much weight? Aren’t you feeding her properly? you have kept her on only rice diet that is why she is not putting on weight. Yea Right! She is growing, has started walking running and grown tall, quite obvious she will loose weight. And I do not want a chubby obese child, rather a healthy one.
I am going to pinch her cheeks whenever I meet her. Make sure you are around cause I know she is going to cry. Bah!! I’d like to ask you know if you do the same to your 2 month old grand child now..
The only consolation that I have is that none of my generation are asking such stupid questions, its only the elders of the previous generations questioning me. And they don’t spare my mum either!
