Hello everyone... I'm a single mom of an 8month old son and I live at hm with my parents until I get on my feet again. I love my parents dearly, but being a new mom, I like to parent in my own way for starters, I don't let ANYONE kiss my baby in the mouth! Not even me... My stepmother however deliberately does not respect my wishes! She kisses him in the mouth so long to the point of him biting her bottom lip and he has teeth! I'm soooo pist off about this!!! and I can't wait to move! Any suggestions?

THAT is disgusting (about the food) and I certainly would not let anyone do that. That is nasty.

But the kissing on the lips, yeah I would not let anyone with any sort of cold sore on their mouth kiss my kids. Maybe explain your concern with her?? I don't honestly think you NEVER should kiss your own child on the mouth. Just absolutely not when you have a cold sore. That is when it will be contagious.

To shawnteria and little miss, you got a point there. Well, when I was young not having a mother for the first 8yrs of my life, it seemed everyone kissed me in the mouth(uncles, aunts, friends of my father) I always got those nasty cold sores! One of my aunts just told me that's how i got those cold sores because I was being kissed to show love and affection. I wouldn't want this to happen to my son. I guess I have to keep working on creative ways to express how this I feel about it. And most importantly, i just want her to respect my parenting just as much as i've feared and respected her growing up. It was bad enough when I decided that I wasn't going to chew my food and feed it to him since I have been nursing him the entire time and I use the baby bullet to make his food. My stepmother still decided to chew up her food and feed it to him! She gave him a tortilla chip with flax seeds and sesame seeds in it loaded with salt, and if it wasn't for his bm, she just might would've gotten away with it. Uggghhh....

I wouldnt want anyone kissing on my child either if i didnt do it myself but i love kissing my son and he loves it too. So i have the same question as little miss. But to answer yours what can you do unless you stop allowing her to see her grandchild because even if she stops doing it in your face itll happen when your not looking or not around and not just by her by anyone.

I guess the big question is why don't you even kiss your own son on the lips or let anyone else?
