    yep, totally agree! I have a 5 year old and a 1 year old. Both love water. DS does occasionally have juice, but he will still just drink water when he's really thirsty, and my 13 month old has just started to really get into water too. If water and milk is all they're offered, they soon learn to just drink it when they're thirsty. I honestly don't believe that any baby will dislike water if that's all they're given.

    Default Bebi drinks. What do think?

    Flavored water for infants who don't like water? Of course they won't like it if you keep giving them flavored water!

    Juice has the same effect on blood sugar levels as cordial/soft drink and is just as bad for teeth ( especially out of a teat) - give them a whole piece of fruit if you want the vitamin benefits!

    This. Surely parents can take a sterilised bottle of water? and the juice idea I really dislike. This is aimed a 6 months and up. Aren't the guidelines on juice for 12 months+? Also, having sugary liquid in a bottle can lead to tooth decay.

    The water is okay but honestly when jasper was old enough to need water often (not just bm) if i got caught out id buy a pump bottle to share. That was 12+ months though.

    Even with the water, you are "supposed" to add formula powder to freshly boiled water, but yeah I don't really have issues with the water. The juice is just a disgraceful idea. It's a product being marketed to tired, time poor parents who probably don't know better and assume that if it says 6mo on the bottle, then it must be perfectly safe. Then they have just chucked a teat on it to be extra sure that parents think its ok for their baby. :-(

    Baby bottles full of juice with teats have been available at woolies for a year.

    Ones with water are a fantastic idea incase of an emergency but I do not like babies drinking juice.

    I started giving DD the occasionally watered down sugar free juice at 2.5 and tbh I wish I hadn't started! Whenever we go out she wants juice!! and isn't impressed when I buy water.

    I don't think I can recall a water emergency in my combined 14 years of child raising. I'm pregnant with my 4th at the moment so I am so relieved I will now know where to buy sterilised water for my baby in an emergency.
    Seriously this is a joke. If I see a baby drinking or a parent buying one of these bottle I may punch you.
