    Hmmm, could be an awful way to find out your bub has a nut allergy, for example. I'd stick to my guns if I were you!

    What is with this obsession by people in getting babies to try crap?! I am constantly amazed, do they not remember what it was like when their kids were babies?!

    I am more relaxed about toddlers, but little babies should be protected by everyone from things bad for them, without their mothers having to fend off grandparents!!

    Why can't they just enjoy seeing a beautiful baby, instead of trying to shove something in their mouth?!

    Nope, not over reacting and I can't believe your Mum goes along with it knowing in advance it's already rattling you.

    My Grandad was a sweet, lovely old man and I know I would have had a hard time telling him to 'sod off' etc, the whole 'respect your elders thing' that is ingrained.

    But that said, it's your infant, a little 3 month old, so it's your job to protect him and keep him away from harms way or anything YOU as his parent deem unsuitable for him, so I would be saying (to bub in front of Grandad) no, no, no, Grandad, I'm just a little baby and I only have milk' or something along those lines.

    But honestly, when I knew I was going to be around Grandad, I would have my baby in a sling, close to my chest for the whole visit, and at that age, they're usually fast asleep anyway.

    Don't let this make you fret, go and enjoy your holiday, but have some planning thought out so you don't have to stress about it if it does happen.
