So today I was at a restaurant and my 15 month old dd was being awful! So I gave her a few sips of my diet Dr pepper, she has never had soda before, ever! So then she really liked it and freaked out even more if I did not give to her! She had about a cup total. So my question is... Tonight she was really hyper,fussy and gassy and just plain irritated! Could it be the soda? I will never give her soda again!

Try some gas drops to soothe her tummy and learn from this experience :-)

The carbonation would make her gassy.  If it wasn't diet then there is sugar and caffeine to make her hyper.

probably the soda becuase it was her first time having it. there is an awesome product on the market that is called gripe water. it is all natural and helps with that gassy bloated irritable tummy thing in children. 

If you do ever give her soda again, water it down first. that way she gets the taste and it will be less harsh on her tummy!!!

Dont let anyone bash you for it because every mom has done something like that to get their child to behave .
