I live in a state where obesity is a major problem. I have been noticing lately when I go to the grocery store that some moms are pouring soda into their babies' bottles and giving it to them!! Is this a "normal" common thing, or just something going on in my area? I have been seeing it a lot lately but I just can't fathom how anyone would think this is a good idea...

I'm sure it's done all over the place, not just your area. Parents do alot of different things.

They are stupid and it is done everywhere. One of many reasons for the childhood obesity epidemic.

I haven't seen it but I'd be horrified if I did, it's just so unhealthy (all the chemicals).

A couple of weeks ago I witnessed my sister give her 14 month old a siooy full of Wendy's sweet tea. Then when my D's 13 months old got ahold if the cup I took it from him. She told me to loosen up IG was only a cupful. Ummm no my D's drinks water only and my dd9 hasn't even had sweet tea her.

I didnt give my babies anything but breast milk until they were 1.  I even think rice cereal in a bottle is bad parenting practices so soda?  oh hell no!

I think the post means babies as 1 year to 2 years.  Not a newborn or 6 month old.  Still awful.  Crazy to put anything but breast milk, juice or formula in a bottle.
