  • I have seen some really bad rashes on lil one's from flavored teas. I let my 20 month old drink some of mine whenever but we try and avoid putting it in his cup. You probably can just get the one without the caffine

  • my SIL serves her babies diluted tea when they eat if they choose not to have water... unsweet and decaf. I don't think it's a bad thing going that route, my nieces and nephews *there are 5 of them* never ask for sugary drinks, and do not have juice before bed!
