How old when they tried a drink?

I'm curious to see how old some of your kiddos were when they first took a sip of alcohol.

  • I give my son sips from what i'm drinking for him to taste. He is 2. I try and tell him that "this is a grown up drink and you won't like it" but he doesn't believe me. So he has had a taste of momma's "sour grapes" (what I tell him my wine is) and now if I say thats whats in my glass, he wont want to drink it. LOL And I did feel kind of bad cause one time he thought I just had coke in my glass but it had liquor in it too and after him bugging me, I let him try. He made the most horrible face and said "ow! hot!" But, he never wants my grown up drinks anymore. But, my grandpa tried this with his beer and my son actually liked it! LOL so now poor grandpa has to fend off his drink requests...

    My mom did this technique with me and i will do it when my younger son starts asking to drink my grown up drinks too.

  • 1 month old. My husbands drunk aunt was talking to him when he was in his carseat on the floor of the living room at christmas time. She then proceded to let him "taste" the beer by dipping his paci in the beer. Needless to say I freaked and we don't talk to her anymore.

  • The paci thing isn't that bad really Lots of people rub a little jack on gums for teething. Ozark I don't see a prob with letting the kids try your drink I think it's fine
