Baby with Pepsi in a bottle(milk bottle)!?

So I watched this baby's parents in the lobby of the salon today. They didn't bring enough milk so they went to the pop machine and bought a can of Pepsi and poored it in the baby's bottle!!! I try to mind my business and I did,but wow I couldn't stop thinking about it! Would this be hard for you to see as a mom?

  • I saw that one time at a bowling alley late at night. The parents bought "juice" from t he machine...it was Hawaiian punch. I couldnt believe they gave that to a baby!

  • I hate seeing that. I once saw a mother run tap water into a bottle, throw in a peppermint candy and hand it to the baby - ruffled my feathers for sure. I just makes you wonder what they give baby in private - or if baby is doing without some nourishment that it might need. I think all moms feel that pang of wanting best for any baby they see.

  • Awful. I hate to see toddlers with soda too. My daughter hasn't and will not taste soda for many years.

  • Wow. Now I drink soda and when my daughter's older i might give her a sprite now and then, but a baby?! No way. Poor baby.....all that sugar and caffiene in the tiny system.....i'd hate to see that effect.

  • I would definately mind my own business, but think to myself what idiots they are. Kinda like bringing your baby into a bar. I work in one and see it often. I knew a lady who use to fill her baby's bottle with gaterade because she said it would keep him quiet.

  • It isn't really hard to watch, but I think it's not a good idea. Why couldn't they have bought water? Or at least sprite?

    My children have had soda, and I think keeping it from them could lead to some serious binging in the future.

    Children need to learn, everything in moderation.
