Yes and no. I have never given it to ds, and tore shreds Off my bestie who when he was 6mnths dipped his dummys into her drink twice. I don't dop his dummy in annnyyyything, and I don't give him coke.
Another bestie gives her daughter coke and diet coke, full strength before age two. I don't judge her but I was shocked and worry about get dds teeth!
Mil have dfs other children watered down diet coke in bottles before age 2 but swore it was ok because It was watered down...I judged her stupidity on that one lol. But I judge her on a bit. It was ok to give a baby (night before their first birthday) a mouthful of her udl because they reached out for it so wanted it.... it was nothing to do with the fact it was cold, shiny, brightly colored and interesting!
What people I don't know do, I don't judge, but often feel sad for the child

I wouldn't say anything, because there could be a reason I'm not aware of.

Yep. But not just coke, anything similarly junky! 😳 But I tell myself it's probably a 'special occasion' or they're diabetic.

No. I am way to busy rounding up my mob to notice what other people are feeding their kids.
If for some reason I did notice I would assume that the parents knew what they are doing. My kids have had coke and other junk food. They are happy healthy kids that know they can have those foods sometimes.
Flame me if you will I don't care. I know I am raising kids that know most things in moderation is the best way to live.

I would think it was gross and that they are setting their children up for a lifetime of bad habits, but people just do what they have been taught themselves.
I have been raised in a very health conscious family and as a result I eat well and feed my family well so that kind of thing wouldn't even touch my DS's mouth... but I would assume that if I saw someone giving their young baby / toddler that sort of thing, its because they just don't know any different.
Some people are able to break the cycle of bad habits, but most won't.

Yes. Coke specifically, yes.
