My 11 month old loves soda, and so i let her have a sip or two out of mine. I usually use a straw and just put some in the straw and do it that way, and yesterday at subway was getting evil looks because of it. I know its not healthy for her, but i brush her teeth every night and shes perfectly fine. Caffeine doesn't affect her and make her hyper either.


Would that piss you off if you saw me do that? Or would you just mind your own business and not even pay attention?

Honestly it would make me mad but I wouldn't say anything to you about it. I'd get on here and bitch about it though. Haha

Meh, its just a sip. Its not exactly goood for her but it wont kill her either. I'd probably say something if you were giving her a whole glass of it though lol

I've seen people pouring soda out of a can into an 8 month olds mouth. Trashy yes , my business? No so I didn't say anything.

However at 11 months the child can probably tell you or show you they are thirsty so it is what it is.

It's ruining her palate. Kids need to enjoy natural flavors. It's also not good for developing kidneys. I would be disgusted by it and feel sorry for the little one but would keep said opinions to myself as it is not my place to say anything unless directly asked.

I'd be disgusted, but not pissed.
