Our expert says:
Well, your boyfriend was badly raised. Beer is not good for babies --- no form of alcohol is. Alcohol as such isn't good for children. There's some deate as to whether the pattern in France, Italy and some other countries, of allowing older children to have a litle wine with meals helps to teach them moderation in drinking, and if this has led to a slightly lower rate of alcoholism in those countries. What you describe, a baby effectively trained to grab a beer botle rather than milk, is hardly likely to encourage her to avoid drinking in excess later in life.
And as the mother, it is your right to protect your child from silly old customs that could damage her. It's sad when people are ignorant, and proud of being ignorant, and refuse to learn better
