My BFF and I have totally different parenting styles. My son is 14 months old, breastfed still, fed fruits, vegetables, very healthy, no cookies or sweets, no juice, nothing like that.
Her son is 7 months and eats anything and everything, formula fed. She posted the other day that he loves Hawaiian fruit punch. Today she posted on fb that he loves chocolate milk!
Is it just me or should babies NOT have that kind of stuff?!

Have you bothered to say any of this to her?

Why do you care?  She parents her way, you parent yours.

A 7 month old should not have milk. Otherwise who cares? Not your kid.

At 7 months he should def not be having chocolate milk as he should still be 100% formula and maybe a little juice. It should be WAY watered down though. And the food part that's up to her. I wouldn't do it though.

None of your business, not your kid. Step away from trouble.

It's not a good idea for kids under age 1 to have cow's milk. That being said, he is her child and it is up to her to parent how she sees fit. If you're concerned, talk to her about it, but don't look down on her or act like you're the perfect parent.

That seems very wrong to me. Way to much sugar in both. Plus "real" milk is to harsh for them, unless she making formula chocolate milk. Not that its much better, there shouldn't be any chocolate in it.
