  • no...i think it wrong to give soda to babies or kids, too many E no's and sugar..what she does not have she wont miss it...

  • If that's the only option and they're thirsty...

  • I think it's disgusting. What's worse is I saw a mom give some pepsi to her baby and he looked like he wasn't even a year old yet. I mean, let's just add more to the obesity problem that this country is facing!

  • don;t let him drink soda bad for his teeth all that sugar plus he will be flying off the walls from the sugar in pepsi

  • as long as he is not drinking it all the time but only gets it every now and then i don't see it as a problem. My kids get it about once or twice a month.

  • no way. my kids have never touched the stuff, as i am adamant about that kind of stuff. i was horrible mother for it once, though, as on a field trip, they made ice cream floats, and i didn't let my twins have the pop. the other mothers were disbelieving of me, but the girls were fine with their plain ice cream!

  • It shouldn't be a regular thing, but without knowing the details of the situation, I don't think it's fair to judge. Let anyone who is perfect be the first to judge others.

  • yes. i do think its ok. if they were out adn it was the only option. maybe he just really needed something to drink. i HATE doing it but there has been at least 2 times when i had to give my three yr olds a drink of my pop when we were out.
