    Your aunt is an a-hole.

    Yuck.... I had MIL stick her finger in DDs mouth a few times as a newbie and that was enough for me to grab DD and say "We don't know where grandma has been!" Takes a good rapport with MIL to be able to say it like that, or perhaps being an older mum myself and not caring what MIL thinks....

    I recall MIL touching DDs hands when MIL hadn't washed her hands after smoking (an immediate death stare from me combined with wiping DDs hands with babywipes gave MIL the message to go and wash up!).

    It took me about a week as a new mum in hospital to go from silently shocked to verbally assertive.... I had GMIL try and pick up newborn DD after blowing her nose on a filthy hankie. Blegh!!

    Just quietly, I'm wishing that there would be a 'newborn etiquette' sign on the hospital room doors to save me having to pull up well meaning but gross relatives when they visit us in four days time!!!

    I would have politely taken the baby and explained the reasons why it's unacceptable. I would have been uncomfortable letting it continue and simply wouldn't have.

    I was out of the room. She had been told and was well aware that I did not want him having it. That should be enough for her not to do it. As soon as I came back inyo the room and saw this happening I took him straight back, said it was not funny (as she was laughing) and walked out.

    You did better than I would have. Everyone for 6 block radius would know what a horrid untrustworthy person she is. You had told her no and she did it anyhow. Unbelievably rude.

    Last night was another that just proved to me 9/10 people do have common sense and respect! (I however must pick that 1/10 an go here have my child!) My AUNT was holding our 4 1/2 month old bub while I was out of the room dealing with my 10 year old. We were at a family party. Bub has not yet had any solids or anything but breast milk. She had joked before about giving him Vegimite. I had told her no even if she had done it with her children. I had made myself very clear and her stirring ways seemed just that from a previous family get together .

    I came back to find her still holding him, with his dummy and vegimite all over his mouth!! She was laughing. I told her it was not funny. Grabbed him and left the room. She tried to apologise fifteen minutes later while I was feeding him. I am extremely annoyed and ****ed off about it and made it very clear. That was not something she had the right to do. It was sometjing that should be special for me and his dad to share-giving him his first food. And feeding it to him against my wishes.

    Just wanted to share with some others that I would think would share my opinion
    Holy f@ck balls. I hope you told her to f@ck off.
