Becoming a parent is very overwhelming, especially when you are a new and inexperienced parent, you are always prone to making mistakes, thus due to a lot of questions that may pop up in your minds, you call your parents to ask for advices on what to do or sometimes you scroll your way to the internet to find answers, unfortunately not all things you see online aren’t exactly the right things, which is very crucial to you, as a new parent since you do not even have an idea on what is the right thing to do.
At least everyone could be aware that when the baby hasn’t even reached six months, it is not advisable for them to intake any food other than breastmilk. A baby’s gut isn’t matured enough to properly digest any solid food when they haven’t reached that age, thus it is very dangerous to try feeding them anything than the prescribed.
But then there are still a lot of stubborn parents who want to work their own way in taking care of a baby, they want to do things on their own, making the life of the baby at risk because of their foolishness.
An enraging video of a 2-month old baby being fed by his parents with porridge has gone viral on social media. Aside from the fact that the baby was being fed with a solid food that is really not allowed for him, the baby’s posture was very dangerous too, he was lying on his back while being fed.
In the video, you can hear a man explaining or somewhat narrating the mother’s action, the man was most likely the father, while the one doing the act was the mother. The video that seemed like a tutorial brought disgust to the viewers and pity for the baby. The man ever said :
“This is how a two-month old baby reacts. We’ve fed him. He’s very hungry and just sucks everything up. Are you hungry little one?”
The video has gone worse after viewers saw that the baby’s hands were tied up too.
“For new moms who have children out there, this is the right method to feed a 2-month old baby. Tie his hands up using this. Then, don’t forget to dilute the food with some water. Otherwise, without any water, we risk choking the child with food. Do try your best to feed the child first before bathing him.” explains the dad.
The post has gained a lot of comments from the netizens:
“I can’t stand watching further, I pity the baby.”
“The child wants to sleep—you should’ve breastfed him, not fed him food. How will this mom parent.”
“Do some research first on the internet on when babies should be fed complementary food. How annoying—really, how can you feed a 2-month-old baby food?! ”
“The baby’s stomach is still as big as an egg – they gave so much food. Even babies who are only breastfed regurgitate due to fullness.”
“It’s still a baby—it’ll eat anything you give them. These stupid parents have endangered their child’s life so that he can become full faster. That’s the main cause of digestive issues. It’s so sad to even watch. “
We hope that the parent’s were caught by authority so they will be able to learn that what they are doing is wrong and that they are harming and abusing the poor child. May the baby be saved from these kind of people who do not even consider the welfare of their child.
