Cruel and Unusual?

My husband likes to tell tales about feeding lemons to babies. He thinks this is totally hilarious. He warns that if I ever have children he will feed them lemons. I think its kind of mean and I cannot imagine doing that to my baby. Apparently more people agree with him, there is an entire subculture of lemon feeders out there on You Tube capturing the reaction of their babies to the sour surprise. Thoughts?

I hate to admit, we've fed ours lemon, onion, pepperoncini... I'd say we're horrible parents, but she eats lint and dust bunnies of her own accord. I've a feeling the lemon/onion/pepperoncini is less harmful for her than the average stuff she pulls up off our floor on a daily basis...

No judgment! I'm sure I'll do it once I have a baby, despite my best intentions.

I always ate lemons as a baby! I loved them and still do. I know I made some faces my fam said but it's part of learning. Their senses are being used! :) It's cute though.

I love the taste of lemons and limes but even so I think I make a face when nibbling them. This will be a fun thing to try on my bebe nephew.
