My son is 2.5 and I NEVER do, EVER!!!!! He does not need them and he actually does not seem to have much interest in them either but that's prob. because I have never given him any. His grandmother has given him cookies and pieces of cake and such and he never eats them, just holds them and eventually drops them somewhere. She says all the time "wow, he is the first kid I have ever come across who does not go crazy for sweets and candy". She sits for her 3 year old great grand-daughter a lot and actually gives her full size candy bars as a bedtime snack. That is disgusting to me, a toddler surely does not need any type of candy or sweets. Dentist has already told me that he has the most beautiful set of baby teeth he has ever seen! Well, this is just one reason I have never let the woman sit for my son and never will. Noone can be trusted with our babies nowadays!!!!
