At a party on the weekend I was horrified when my cousin brought her 5 month old an ice cream, and let her eat half of it!
Then last night on our evening walk we saw a new cold rock had opened in our area and saw another couple there, they asked how old our baby was and the I asked how old theirs was, she was 4 months. And when they got their ice creams they were both feeding her spoonfuls!
I'm I the only one horrified at babies eating badly or am I a stick to the rules stick in the mud??

No I am exactly the same! We went to a buffet restaurant a few weeks ago and DF was a bit embarrassed by me making rude comments at the table behind us for forcing her baby (would have probably been around 6-7 months) to eat spoonfuls of sour cream and laughing while she was screaming! I was disgusted.
I also get annoyed with people who give my children food without asking. The amount of times people have given them coke or ice cream isn't funny and my DD's are lactose intolerant!
So yes this annoys me quite a lot lol.

I'm with you! Yes all things in moderation bla bla bla but they are babies!!!! I'm getting hounded by well meaning family and friends to give my 14 month old DS hot chips or nuggets as " isn't that what toddlers eat?" ah no my son eats what we do and we don't eat chips and nuggets!!

I'm ok with an older baby having the occasional plain biscuit, but that's about it. I met a lady (friend of a friend, we met at a play centre) who was telling me that she had no concerns about her baby's weight and wished people would back off. I agreed and said that babies are the weight they are meant to be if they are fed right. Then she got the poops with me, but it turned out that her baby lived off baby food chocolate custards, creme caramel, etc, and at 9 months was still on up to 8 full bottles of formula per day on top of food that was pretty much all dairy based. No fruit, veg, cereals, nothing other than the custard type baby desserts and formula, with the occasionsl hot chip or, yes, ice cream.
I will look up that show tonight.

See I occasionally let DD have "bad food" but she drinks litres and litres of water a day, was breastfed up to 20 months and loves her fruit - would live off it all day if I let her. She also loves eating vegies, meat, breads, dairy...she has a pretty balanced diet so when she is given the occasional treat, I usually don't mind.
Though at Christmas Eve day lunch at the IL's, I was mortified to see DD's cousin, who is 10 days younger than DD, drinking a full can of creaming soda.........and SIL thought it was cute the way she was running around with a big red moustache on her face,.....and they wanted to know if DD would like some...
Err no....DD bounces of the walls on her own levels of energy and good god could you imagine what that would do to her insides!
ETA: Though having said all that, a teeny mouthful of icecream every now and then on a hot day I wouldnt object to....it could've been the first and only time that baby had a taste of ice cream. But I wasn't there so I dont know the situation.
