    Honestly, yes. I am pretty adamant that my kids wont have coke or anything remotely like that. They've never asked for it. So I will admit to judging in my head, or more so just wondering why the heck? Cos I cant think of anything worse than my kids being even more hypo

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.
    You can't possibly compare formula to coke?? and that's why I mentioned it, bc I was waiting for these sort of comments.

    Formula has everything a growing baby needs. Coke is sugared, coloured water with a heap of caffeine thrown in? If a mother chose to give a newborn condensed milk in a can, knowing what we know now and the access we have to clean formula and water, then I'd probably judge.

    I'm just kind of shocked you are even comparing the two.... well not really, as I said, I mentioned formula bc I knew it would get compared and wanted to show they aren't the same.... Formula is a healthy good alternative. Coke is complete junk?

    I very vocally judged my MIL when I watched her put a straw full of coke in my 4 month old nephews mouth.. She wasn't impressed that I called her out on it but I was horrified!

    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....
    Are you kidding? How are coke and formula at all similar? Choosing not to breastfeed for whatever reason and give your child a proper, nutritious alternative is NOT the same as choosing to give your child caffeinated soft drink.

    A woman should not be made to feel guilty for not using her boobs to feed her child. They are her breasts. FF vs BF is far more complex than choosing the most nutritious option.

    Formula is baby food - nutritionally balanced to perfection to ensure a baby / child has everything they require to thrive period. Coke is a drink with no healthy or nutritional qualities to speak of, in fact coke is not even really a drink as such it's confection.

    I'm not comparing coke to formula. I completely agree they are nowhere near similar. I'm just interested in the way so many people said 'its not my business what other people feed their kids', yet in some cases obviously we do see it as our business. I am quite passionate about child health and nutrition, and I DO personally think our childrens health is everyone's business, but I don't think this gives people the right to 'judge' other parent's choices per se.

    These kids were going absolutely bananas and high off it!!! Wouldn't be surprised if they develop problems due to lack of sleep and too much caffeine and all the other crap that's in red bull. God my 75kg body can barely tolerate a small can of red bull let alone a toddler/small child!!!!

    Well my bench mark in judging any type of parenting - is there physical or emotional harm coming from a particular aspect of parenting. Putting your child in sposies as opposed to MCN doesn't tick that box, nor formula, or using CC for a working mother. Therefore I don't judge those decisions. if a parent is belting their child, or constantly feeding them junk, or allowing a 2 year to scoff a 600ml coke, then there is harm in that.

    So I would say that the people that said they wouldn't judge a ffer but would seeing a small child drinking coke, are basing on the above. Formula is not harmful to babies, no matter what the pro bfing crowd says. Infact the WHO study says there is little to no long term benefits to bfing.

    So formula isn't harmful, coke is. That's why some don't judge the former but do the latter.
