    Yes I do. Little kids shouldn't be drinking it.

    It's interesting that so many people stated its no-one's business how others feed their kids (in the ff thread), yet when it's Coke it seems it IS everyone's business!

    dont get me wrong, I'm not suggesting coke and formula are at all similar, just that it seems to me its 'normal' and socially acceptable to feed your child formula, therefore others should not judge your choices, yet if I am to give my child soft drink, which is not so socially acceptable (in most circles), its ok for others to 'judje' and comment on what I feed my kids?

    Just thought it was interesting....

    Honestly.... yes a bit. Under 4 or 5 yes. Something like formula isn't a choice, and even if it is, it's still a suitable food. Coke is just sugar and caffeine. There is no nutritional value at all and it contains a drug.

    It's just a really bad, unnecessary choice of beverage for a young child.

    So yes, I do judge.

    But I saw one member get in trouble for saying yes she did judge when people made the choice not to even try, so in cases like that it is a choice. It could be argued that ff a baby is less desirable health-wise than a 3 yr old having an occasional sip of coke. But it's not ok to admit that you judge a woman for one choice, when it is for the other.

    FTR I don't 'judge' women who ff, although I do sometimes wonder why they didnt bf. I probably do judge people giving their kids Coke but I try not to coz my husband actually gives my kids Coke regularly (which I hate), but I realise he loves his kids just as much as people who don't.

    Im commenting more on the perception of whose business our children's and community's health is, and how it changes.
