  • I don't think a two year old should drink coffee and I don't give them coffee. However, my husband seemed to think it was OK and did and my mom's husband has no problem giving them a cup of coffee and letting them go. That always made me so very very mad

  • No think of how a cup or two of coffee makes you feel. Thats what a drink is going to make your kid feel like. Coffee isnt even healthy for you let alone your child.

  • My opinion...NO....I know that I drink coffee and other drinks like that every now and then and my kids always ask me for a sip. I give them a SIP....not any of there own! Usually they dont like it anyways. Letting them try something different is ok but not giving them a cup of their own!

  • No, absolutely not. Their little bodies can't handle the caffeine and if you need proof of how bad this is for your child, have hubby accompany you to the child's next doc appt and ask doc in front of hubby!

  • Are we talking decaf or regular? I'd be more inclined to give him a sip of decaf than regular. However, like a lot of families I have those members who'll let him sip from their cups on occasion. It's rare so I don't yell.
