Anyway I didn't mean to specifically offend anyone, I just can't help but judge every time at one of our family functions that damn jug of diet coke comes out for the child.

And I do get what you mean about the jugs of coke. I've been bagged for buying cheese singles but that same person allows their child to chug on coke like its going out of fashion. I don't get it??

[QUOTE=TinyLittleTootsies;7361751]Thanks for the answer I am interested in medical things, so was googling what it is about coke that works over other things but couldnt find anything about it. It would be interesting to know why.
My daughters paed said that at times type 1's can get immune to a certain treatment especially if they've been treated for hypo's frequently or the hypo is quite severe. There was a long time after my DD got sick that coke was the only thing that would work but thankfully the jellybeans have been working again!

To the pp who said diabetes is not a good enough excuse, try dealing with a child who has a low or a hypoglycemic episode and as a parent you would do anything to elevate this. To prevent a seizure or worse.
As I also mentioned I'm extremely against coke & soft drink in general and certainly don't advocate parents of diabetic children to use this as a standard thing but in rare situations its been literally been a lifesaver.

Oh, I would love to see someone go and tell some of the parents where I work what you think of them giving their kids coke. You'd have your teeth knocked out

Yes my kids (not babies) have had coke and will again. I know what I am doing and I know the reasons behind the choice we have made to allow our children on occasion to have a drink of coke.
My children are happy and healthy. They have a healthy relationship with food and I am so glad we have taken the approach we have.

Well, I'm not a fan of small children regularly drinking coke at all, but yikes I would never confront them especially to those I don't know.
