A couple of weekends ago, we were given some garlic bulbs by my Dad. They were growing it in their garden, there were loads of bulbs, needed to be eaten soon, would we like some…well, yes, garlic is lovely. So we took some garlic and set about looking up the most garlicky recipes we could find. Since we don’t go out much (see Exhibit A: the baby) we didn’t worry about whether we would smell of garlic.
And then a few days ago my Mum was visiting us. The conversation went something like this:
Mum: Have you been eating garlic?
Me: Well, yes…yes we have.
Mum: I thought so.
Me: Can you smell it on my breath?
Mum: Not on your breath.
Mum: I can smell it on the baby’s breath.
So, there you have it. Proof that the baby eats what you eat. And that some babies don’t mind garlicky milk.
