  • Why would you give a toddler soda? They are hard enough to keep up with without the extra sugar and possibly caffeine!

  • No! She loves her milk. Also, water and juice.

  • My doctor told me that 6 ounces a day doesn't hurt a toddler. I generally didn't but she said it was OK.

  • Nope. My DS is 5 and knows he's not allowed to drink soda. Unfortunately when he is over at my ex's house they offer it to him, and he'll tell me that he did or did not drink it.

  • Why is my answer getting voted down? Do you people seriously give your toddler soda? Caffeine stunts growth and sugar destroys teeth. Why would you do that?
