God everyone would probably judge the heck out of me! My DD is 14 months and she's had maccas (the fries to go with her sushi roll), she loves frozen coke (I give her bits of mine), she always has little tastes of my fizzy drink (I rarely have it but I'm fine with her having a taste), she eats cake and sweet things if we are having them. I've had the stares and tuts when out in public and I honestly don't give a sh!t. Her favourite foods are avocado and grapes (but she'll eat pretty much anything I give her) and she loves drinking water.
Would I give her a whole bottle of coke? No I wouldn't. Do I allow her to have tastes of mine and other crappy foods? Yes I do. Is it anyone else's business as long as she is happy, healthy and thriving? Nope, not at all.

I'm surprised by some people's reactions regarding a low bgl reading.
1.2mmol/L is extremely low. Mum would not have the chance to decide which is the best option. You would go with the closest sugar fix. If coke is on hand, it is suitable to use. It is an emergency situation. Who cares if your child had coke. He/she is alive.
Perhaps not the best option, but people are caught off guard.
Best option in those situations is the remedy which will keep the child alive.
That being said - if no finger prick had been done, just seems like a poor decision. Not the first child unfortunately.

My kris don't get soft drink either. Nor lots of other things people give their kids. I didn't even read your post it was just a general comment about how no one on here (usually) ever admits to being the one who gives their kids cr@p yet we all see other people doing it.

But if a baby was having a hypo, would you really continue on sitting around at the RTA?
