    Oh ok I didn't think about it like that. I guess in cases of dehydration it would be better then nothing.

    Coke for sure and that was offered to us for our at the time 12 month old. To which I refused (as you would) and gave her water.

    I've given DD V8 vegie juice in her bottle which is a vibrant red colour and the looks I've had from strangers is funny. They must be wondering what on earth is in it, lol... I'll tell them it's a bloody mary if they ask, hehe...

    My cousin used to put her toddlers to bed with sweet cordial filled bottles all the time. But then again she thought it was cute to give them a swig from a beer bottle.

    My in laws tried to give my 1year old coke its the norm in their culture. They were really surprised when I turned it down in place of water.

    They really praised how good it was that he drunk water.

    I nearly fell over.
