Hiii, I am a housewife and a mother of 7 months and 19days. My question is everyone in my family tells me you should let your child eat each and everything and let her sit with everyone then only she will learn to eat. As such I am giving her dhal, khichdi, banana chickoo at two times of the day. Now whatever food I give her I keep on checking her reactions plus is it suiting her or not. Still people dont understand around me and I am fed up explaining to my husband that please I am taking care of her eating as I should know her reactions and whether she is allergic to something or not. But he doesnt care will give me only blank reply " do whatever elders are telling you". I next went to the extent to explain this fact to my father in law there was a very good blog of breastfeeding on the website I shared him the same, for 2-3 days max he felt I was right but, then again he got mixed with his wife. No, a kid will learn to eat everything when she sits with everyone. Then anybody might be eating anything it may be a dabeli or spicy dhal or papad or any solid food yet will keep on trying to make her taste anything they have I feel pissed off. So now tell me am I wrong? I just feel I am a mother and a member of this family. Yet I am not listened too nor cared about what my feelins are. So please guide me with complete explanations what should I do? And should I really let her taste everything and not be a finiky?
