Its an accessive amount of sugar for one serving for a child. That is my point.

Quoting Shauna71904:

ugh ok and whole milk has 12.83 what's your point dear?

Quoting CTRedSoxMom:

I formula feed my youngest child, but I still find this wrong on so many levels, one thing being ONE serving of it has 19 grams of sugar.  Its like setting children up for issues with weight, obesity, and diabetes.

Quoting Shauna71904:

if it's ok to EBF what's wrong with this?

What about children who have medical reasons for drinking this product or Pediasure....do you not agree with that either?

Quoting CTRedSoxMom:

And I don't agree with that either, pedisure had 23g of sugar per serving. http://pediasure.com/Products

Quoting JADIEBUG:

Pedisure is the same thing and people use that left and right. it is NO different than Pedisure.

Agree with what there's nothing for you to agree with, my DD drank Pediasure at the Pedi recommendation to help with her weight gain.

If there is a medical reason, I do not see a problem with it as long as it is prescribed. I just cant say I see a pediatrician recommending something along those lines. I know mine wouldn't.

 And nobody is saying a baby has to be given this for every bottle or sippy. It may just be something they give them once a day or as a treat.

I mean 12 seems too high as well wouldn't you think? and to moms who swap kids to whole milk at 12 months OFHHHHHH I BET THAT UNLEASHES AN ARGUMENT hahaha the devil women, they are subjecting their kids to obesity as well right? because whole milk as 12 grams of sugar?
