    Default Bebi drinks. What do think?

    http://www.bebidrinks.com.au/

    Aimed at infants with a sterile ready to go teat. Comes with either sterile water or flavored for infants that don't drink or like water. (The sales lady on the morning show was saying this). I think the water is a good idea for on the go on hot days or to make a formula bottle up but I don't like the use of the flavored drinks (even if it's got no added sugar).

    I believe that you need to persist with infants when it comes to water, they WILL drink if thirsty, it takes a little time, but they will drink water. My 8/9m old still refuses, but now and then will take a sip. What happens once they are toddlers and they are too old for the teat? Or when they are at home and used to drinking flavored fluids? Will juice end up bring the alternative forever? It seems to be the beginning of poor healthy choices from very early on. Women on the facebook page are raving on about how great it is. I don't understand why, I'm angry about it!
    Water, water, water only is very important for infants, toddlers and children to enjoy at home and out.

    My ds1 is allowed juices, pop drinks and cordial BUT he still loves water and it's the main drink in his bottle and the first he asks for when thirsty because we started him on it early and persisted when he seemed like he didn't like it.

    I think the sterile water bottles are a great idea.

    Not to keen on the sweetened drinks in the baby bottle packaging. There's something that irks me about seeing a little one drinking cordial or juice from a baby bottle. It's bad for their teeth.

    I'm very strict on DS only having water or milk/formula at his age (21 months).

    He likes water, so I have no motivation to even try him on juices or any other sweet drink.

    Fully agree with you!! Its just another 'must have' dreamt up by a big company to make money. The plain water fair enough as there would probs be lots of parents caught short with not enough bottles for formula sometimes but the idea of flavoured water is ridiculous in my opinion. There is abs
    olutely no need for it.

    I completely agree op. The water ones are a great idea, but I hate seeing babies drinking juice out of a bottle. DD is two and has juice, but she has never had it in a bottle and it's a big treat for her. She loves water and it's her main drink. I've always encouraged it.

    I saw these advertised on the Morning Show the other day.

    I think they are a terrible idea. Diluted juice is not a bad idea for older children (in moderation, and not something my kids have, but if they have to have it), however this product has a teat and the morning show said it was suitable for infants from 6 months of age. Wtf!?!? Why do 6mo's need anything other than breast milk, formula or water as a drink?i can only imagine how bad this would be for their teeth, and setting up bad habits for these babies. :-(

    I think that it is consumerism gone mad and shot itself. Take water with you.

    I brought a couple when i first saw them in woolies quite a few months ago.
    I only brought the water ones thought as i do not give my babies juice at all let alone in a bottle.

    The sterile water though i thought would come in handy

    I bought some of the water for DD 8 mths for when we go camping remotely. She loves water, and will have only that and breast milk for a while. DS 3,8 yrs can have diluted juice or hot chocolate as a special treat, but he also prefers water. But anyway, the bottles are good for when you have no clean water alternative (and those big plastic containers seem too plasticky for babies)

    I couldn't believe it when I saw these on TV yesterday. Flavored water / fruit drink in a bottle with a teat?!? It's terrible. If a child still needs to drink from a teat then why oh why would you give them anything other than milk or water?
