I don't like when folks say something to me so I kept my mouth shut! There was a kid in walmart yesterday just screaming! I looked over he was drinking a redbull! Come on now he was maybe 2 or 3 why add to the fact that they are hyper enough as it is.

My son is 13 I can not imagine givning him a redbull!

I don't like them myself my heart races and I feel odd. Would you give one to a kid that young or your kids period?

If he was screaming BEFORE the redbull it might be an adhd or other mental thing. The caffeine actually calms them down.


I am sure more mommas with actual experience will be in shortly to explain correctly.

I gave my 7 month old a drink from my coffee cup the other day at church... then I gave him more... and more... and again... more...

I didn't think about how bad it looked, because I was only dribbling water in his mouth... I had rinsed out the coffee and put a little water in there.  He had just had some food, and he wanted something to rinse it down!!   Wasn't until some one walked by and stopped in their tracks...  I laughed so hard.

No but it really depends. I'm not sure if red bull has one, but other energy drinks have big cans with a lid... If it was one of those I'd think maybe they have him something else in the container. Or like another replies said, it could be meant to calm him if he has ADHD. Either way I don't judge.

That is why I am venting here and did not say anything

Quoting Mrs.Pedro:
