    So... There were at least three responses to your "question" above this latest post giving quite plausible explanations including some from people dealing with diabetic children. If you were really seeking to be educated, I doubt you'd keep pressing the issue?

    Sorry I meant to say they always end the exact same way to no matter who starts them.

    Will everyone please stop attacking the OP?! She's entitled to her opinion and if it's judgemental so be it. Since CHC nurses/govt sites/a lot of health professionals explicitly warn against anything other than milk or water in a bottle and also encourage no bottles after 12 months, it's hardly surprising she might be shocked and not realise that there could be other reasons why a parent could do it. And for all we know the parent could be doing it for no good reason.

    Meh. My SIL and BIL put coke in their 16 month old baby's bottle when she was upset...why? Because they're crap parents, that's why. No medical conditions, no nothing...my BIL wouldn't spend money on a bottle of water because he liked coke and wanted his child to enjoy coke too. Said child ended up in hospital a couple of times with anemia. Really people, there can be a thousand reasons in the world that you can conclude as to why a baby is drinking coke, but there's every chance it's a parent making a really crap decision, and there's every chance that parent makes that really crap decision on either a regular, or semi-regular basis.
    No talking about her on a forum does not help matters at all, but either does making up excuses for the behaviour when there's every chance this child gets coke because she has parents who make really crap decisions. Maybe it's time to lay off the OP, who has clearly been told it's not her place to start threads based on the actions of another parent.

    Think it's me they're trying to attack. I stand by my view. Coke is really bad, esp for children IF there's a medical reason then I still believe there are better alternatives

    I agree with LoCo. The "coke" threads/posts come around every so often, and it never ends well.

    The original OP is definitely "judgey" in my eyes. It wasn't asked if there may have been a reason why a mother would give her child coke, it was a post that made it clear how shocked the OP was to witness such an act.

    Anyway...

    No actual reason apart from one has been given, which I will do more personal research on

    im not trying to cause issues by posting this thread, i was just shocked that she gave him coke...

    ill keep my thoughts to myself next time.. and not post a thread like this...

    i just felt sorry for the kid ..........
    Unless you want to start a giant argument (not meaning you are right now) but its best not to start threads like this as you are never allowed to judge others until you know their life story

    I wasnt trying to attack anyone, OP and others are entitled to be judgy, I am entitled to not like it at all.

    Perhaps this mother gives her child coke often and just doesnt care that its bad for her. Perhaps she was stressed and made a bad decision in the spur of the moment. My point is that you just Dont know. Thats it. You saw a few moments of her life. You have absolutely no idea about what she does every day or why she did what she did. I make a concerted effort not to judge people because I know that I know nothing about their lives.
