Quick history, I have 1 grandson, just 2. My son & his wife have very different ideas about bring up baby, plus they are very isolated family & they don't socialise with anyone (other than in the workplace) & her parents live overseas.
Some things have been distressing to watch, like force feeding him bottle when he wouldn't finish it @ 10 months)
Feeding him Chilli hotpot meal. He cried & started hitting himself on his face & mouth. He's was older, maybe around 18 months
He's up till 10.00-11.00pm & gets up around 9.00-10.00am (which worked before he started day care.) On daycare days now, he's there at 7.30-8.00am & missing out on hours of sleep before he gets there.
I realise, even in writing this, & I do agree it is the parents choice. Even tho its hard at times & Ive learnt to breath deeply & sometimes make an excuse to leave the room.
But my reason for asking ? now, what if you think it could be harmful?
He's now getting a small bowl of whole nuts each day (almonds, cashews pistachios, macadamia - not peanuts)
& parents tell me its "ok, because he can chew"
Personally I think its not about the chewing, its more about if something gets stuck in the throat & lung capacity to cough it up.
a). I wouldn't mention it to DIL, but is it ok to mention it to my son?
b) honestly, would other grandmothers be upset about anything Ive mentioned here?
