An almost 9 month old baby drinking coffee?!

Friend on Facebook posted that her daughter, almost 9 months old, is (and I quote) "already addicted to coffee" - apparently both she and one of the grandmas have been giving the baby coffee for awhile now. Thoughts? I'm concerned, to be honest. This isn't the first time I've read about the baby eating or drinking things that could harm her. Just worries me. =/

  • Hopefully they are not telling the truth. Caffiene, although I LOVE it, is not appropraite for growing children. It has been found to stunt growth, and, of course, is a neuroagitant.

    Boo to your friend.

  • Crazy, yes. Joking, no. She really does give her baby coffee. Starbucks, especially. Gave her a strawberry at 4 months old, and chocolate, too. Pictures showed the truth!
