I was reading through the thread about toddlers being given alcohol and it reminded me about some strange things that parents have given thier young children to drink.
So my question is, What is the strangest thing you have seen given to a young child in a bottle?
For me personally it had to be chocolate milk as a baby bottle choice for a toddler and black tea with milk, also in a baby bottle. I cringed on the inside for thier little teeth.
I also found it odd when my DP's brother thought it was a good idea to put lemonade in my SS's drink bottles instead of water. But then I am like a massive 'water only in the boys drink bottles' nut.

My cousin gave her son choc milk in his bottle all the time. Made me gringe inside, but their family have never been healthy and she was brought up on junk and takeaway so it is just normal for them.

Stupidest thing I've seen is coke.
Other than that there was an episode of toddlers and tiaras where the parents put energy drink in the toddlers bottle so it stayed awake for it's act.

I was on a bus and the bub across from me (around 10-12 months) was drinking 1 of those banana milk calci yum drinks. He had about a 1/4 of the bottle left and the mum topped it up with coke and shook it up and gave it back to him. Wrong on soooo many levels!

Not in a bottle but the amount of parents I saw giving coke to toddlers when I was a Macca's manager was ridiculous!
I've only really seen juice in baby bottles.
