Babies: 0 - 3 Months

I can't believe I did this...

I went shopping with my MIL today (ugh big mistake), because going out with a new LO is hard on your own and she doesn't work right now. Of course stupid me left my formula at home, and he got hungry while we were out. Now I'm freaking out because my MIL convinced me to give LO ginger ale. I can't believe I let her talk me into it!!! So while I was loading groceries into the car she gave him some to calm him down, I asked her how much she gave him, and she shrugged and said about 3oz!!! OMG, I started bawling. I am never going shopping with her again!

Is this going to hurt him? He's only 11 weeks old. *seriously kicking my self*

    She doesn't take no for an answer. She's forced foods with dairy in it down my throat full well knowing I can't eat dairy. She's beyond evil. I already feel shitty enough.

  • Well, yeah, it's probably bad. But I can't imagine it'll do any lasting damage... Except for some probably horrible gas for a while. It's not like ginger ale is going to cause your LO to get the flu or lose a limb or something. It's definitely helluva bad for him, but it's not deadly. At most, he'll throw it up. Big whup. Think of it as a really horrible 'junk food' day. Like one of those days where all you ate was cake and hot dogs, lol. It didn't kill you, but probably made you pretty uncomfy. Just don't make a habit of it, lol

  • Was it a wise choice? No. Will the little man live? Of course. Should you do it again? I would hope not. We're all human and have all done stupid things.. even fully knowing they were wrong. No one said parenting is easy... 
    My advice to you that I've learned from my own mom after being pushed around..
    Its YOUR kid. You're his protector and you say what goes.. Be a mama bear and pull out the claws if you have to.

    Yeah, I guess diarrhea or gas isn't all that bad. But to the OP, grow some balls. When it comes to your kid, you shouldn't let other people "force" you to do things you don't feel comfortable with.

  • I can't even comprehend this.

    Why would you have thought this would be okay?  I mean, why not AT LEAST do water? They sell bottles of water everywhere...

    You really need to call your pedi.  No one on here can answer if this is going to cause problems.

  • This has got to be MUD!

       I honestly can't see why this would ever happen....you were at a grocery store! Unless your child has a severe milk protein intolerance.....that requires prescription formula, any mother worth their salt would have gone in the store.....bought some formula.....maybe even a bottle, and then fed their child. Wierd....if this is true, lose the MIL or grow some balls!

  • You're pathetic. Seriously.

    Sure, it was ginger ale, not draino, but it was stupid for you to let it happen. Don't blame your MIL for being "evil" - take some accountability, you're his MOTHER. If you won't stand the fvck up for your BABY and what's in his best interest, and not let jackas$es push you around (which will happen a LOT), perhaps you should look into alternate caregivers - if you won't, he needs someone who will.
