    My 'friend' put coke in her babies bottles or cordial because apparently they didn't like milk.. She lost her kids to docks.

    I don't understand the soft drink? Or how kids would like it? My 2 year old grabbed my glass and took a sip the other day and it had lemonade in it and she freaked out. I think because of all the bubbles and taste. There is no way she would go for it again. I just don't understand how babies/ little kids would like the taste.

    I've used flat lemonade when the kids have had icky tummies before. I've also been told that if your kidlets are sick and won't take hydralyte (most can't stand the taste) them power aide cAn be used.

    Tbh I don't really pay attention to know what weird things I may have seen. Usually I'm too busy minding my own business and kids to even think twice at what others have in their kids bottles or what their drinking

    And this is why you can't buy Phenergan anymore and get sent to the doctor to get a prescription!!

    I see babies/toddlers on a regular basis drinking soft/energy drinks and I work in a hospital.

    Two dieticians have also told me that they would rather see kids drink flavored milk over juice as its not as bad for their teeth and whilst it does have a high sugar content (like the juice), it at least has other good bits to it, ie fat and calcium.

    Just thought I'd put it out there as there are often other reasons why parents make the choices they do (although I'd be surprised if there is a good reason for soft drink )
    Agree with this! My DS2 has lost over 2kg since jan and was still losing weight - we couldnt get him to stop losing because he has sensory issues and is extremely picky with what he eats and drinks - he will not under any circumstances drink plain milk, so we have to give him sustagen but every now and again when we're out I buy him a calciyum flavoured milk. He doesn't look underweight because he is still considered average but its the loss that was worrying his dr.

    TBH though, if anyone has ever judged me in public for it, ive never noticed.

    I really try not to judge because as we have seen, there are often good reasons for things that seem odd at face value, but I must admit to being absolutely amazed that people feed their young children energy drinks!! I would be really reluctant to drink one myself, let alone give one to a child. Do people just not realise what's in them???

    This sort of circumstance is very understandable. The child I saw with choc milk had it in a baby bottle at my day care as its only source of fluid for the day. I found it odd that instead of a popper style thing they chose to put in in a baby bottle. Also odd that they sent choc milk to daycare.

    But you are right, many parents do have good reasons for thier choices (tho I still dont understand coke for littlies).
