    Default WWYD? Facebook post

    So I'm part of a few Facebook groups for various baby related things. Tonight someone has posted on one of the groups asking for advice.

    She has said that her father is giving her baby alcohol and wants some info on alcohol to educate her dad without causing a family blow up. She has not said that she is stepping in or stopping it!!

    WWYD? Is there anything that can be done?

    Wow! I would clearly let her know that now is not the time to tread lightly. She must put feelings aside and protect her baby! Just say no and don't leave Bub with him.

    Seriously what info does she think she needs?

    That's incredible. Is it in a bottle or something to 'help baby sleep'? I cannot imagine why he's doing that.
    Regardless, I would not mince my words and post that it's putting the baby at severe risk of developmental problems and even death. As a mother, she would ultimately have the child removed from her care if she fails to keep it safe and stop her dad doing this, even though she's not doing it herself. Poor baby. I really don't know what is wrong with some people.

    Ok I would post some info on the harm it can do!!! Wtf. A blow out? Who the eff cares! Sorry but my ds doesn't sleep and I just deal. I'll also add I did CIO with my daughter but after he was sick I couldn't do it. Plus I researched. Maybe that dad could spend money on a sleep consult instead of booze!

    What does she mean by "giving alcohol"? Does she mean dipping his finger in and letting the baby lick it? Or is baby actually having a big drink? (Surely not??)

    Ugh I hate when adults act like idiots (both giving a child alcohol and not stopping him immediately) It's her baby and she's supposed to protect him/her not protect her fathers feelings

    Are you sure the person isn't posting that to cause a stir? I find it hard to believe that someone. . Anyone ... Would think it's okay and not intervene.
    I recently called a woman out in a private Facebook group I'm in for syndromes who gave advice that boiled skim milk instead of breast milk would help a 6 month old baby. Afterwards she sent me rude messages. Then she left the group. Obviously didn't belong and was trying to cause a argument.
    I would say something.

    It doesn’t say how much alcohol. He may be an old skool fool who thinks it’s ok to put a dummy in brandy for teething or putting a bit of whiskey in babies bottle to settle the child. A bit different to a man who lets baby swig from a beer bottle or sip on a glass of wine though it’s still not ideal. I wouldn’t scare the woman but I would let her know that it’s not good for brain development and maybe suggest she takes her dad to the next early childhood check up appointment.

    Wow! Just wow!

    I oils be blunt and say...

    You don't need official websites to tell your dad to stop - YOU need to tell him to. If it causes a blow up tell him you are his mother and you will not allow him to have any alcohol. If he can't stop then he doesn't see his grandchildren. Put your foot down. Your children's health is far more important than avoiding a potential argument with your dad. He needs to let go. They aren't his children they are yours!
