Lol if you don't want "Internet" advice then don't ask questions on BG, uou know because it's just Internet people.



And we are right, you are feeding your kid shit. It's gross and not healthy. My kids are the most important thing to me so I only fill their bodies with things that will give them the best start in life.

:lol: You do that. And when your childs teeth are affected and is diagnosed with add/adhd/behavioral issues or type 2 diabetes etc. just remember you had your head too far up your ass to hear what anyone else had to say.

So naturally you ask strangers to if you should do something you already do? Makes sense.

Juice generally has about 60 grams of sugar in it. Food for thought.

I am not setting him up to be addicted to junk. That's what MODERATION is for. And I might add if you water it down more than it already is wtf does it matter what someone else chooses for their child? It not like I am shoving a double chocolate cake down his throat. Nor am I telling you, that you are a horrible person for choosing what you chose as YOUR child's as parent. What other people chose for their children is really none of your concern. He sees only specialist for his doctors and his diet. And they all use MY ideas to give other kids the meds they NEED to take. Let me just also add that if you had literally ONE drop of his HIGHLY CONCENTRATED SODIUM that's salt if you didn't know what sodium is, you would instantly want to chug a whole gallon of water and it still wouldn't help with getting the taste or the dry mouth away. Why don't you try it now that I think of it. Take 2 table spoons of salt in 1/2 oz of water and drink it. AND I may also add that won't even come close to how concentrated it is. LIKE I SAID BEFORE WHAT YOU FIND IS BEST OR WHAT YOU WANT FOR YOUR CHILD IS WHATS BEST FOR YOUR FAMILY. THAT DON'T MEAN ITS WHAT IS BEST OR WHAT SOMEONE ELSE WANTS FOR THEIR CHILD!!!!!!!!!
Let me guess I am a bad parent for starting him on cereal by 3 months and baby food by the time he was 4 months. OH AND GOT JUICE THE 1ST TIME AT 4 1/2 MONTHS!!!! AHHH I am a bad mom!!!

So when a parent turns the child forward facing at 11 months because thats whats best for them then we should all just shrug it off? No of course not because they are putting their childs safety at risk. Obviously your child has a MEDICAL issue which is different from a perfectly normal healthy child who doesnt need special consideration. Yes cereal at 3 months (unless there is a medical reason) is dumb. Even old school doctors say wait until 4 months. There are many reason why they say to wait and skip cereal altogether now days and if you did any research and educated yourself beyond your know it all doctor you would know them. Just because your child gets a little juice to take his meds with doesnt mean everyone's kid should be getting juice. My pedi says no juice at all but if im going to give it wait until 6 months. Hell they cant even have water before 6 months why on earth would I give juice just for the hell of it? Again talking about normal healthy children. Medical issues are different and not at all what were talking about. I had to shove a qtip up my childs butt for 6 months so she could poop doesnt mean I would tell a parent whos child isnt having issues to do it. There would be no reason for it. Just like there is no reason for a child to have juice. (again assuming no medical issues)

I am not trying to convince anyone to give their child juice rather he had this problem or not I would still have given it to him every now and again. I don't flood to the internet to get my info I ask multiple doctors, nurses, and dieticians he would still get it in moderation. Giving your child the occasional juice is not going to set them up for failure or to crave junk, nor is it going to make them over weight ect. This mom just was asking if other people have given their child a infant juice and if their baby was ok after. Everyone parents differently everyone make different choices for their children. It don't make it wrong and it don't make it right. Only you know what is best for your own child. Yes even my sons team of doctors urged me not to but when he started eating formula non stop and was not getting full we all decided it was best for him to start foods. I have been fighting with my MIL & SIL about my son just now being 7 months and already using Sippy cups he has not had a bottle for over a month now she and I butt heads about brushing my sons teeth too. They say he is too little that's not ok. When the dentist and almost every one of his doctors asked me at his last appointment if I had started introducing a cup yet. Yep sure have since he was 4 months. And I may also add the MIL takes care of SIL DS 50% of the time. He is just 2yrs old. My whole point is just because some people chose one thing for their own families don't mean everyone needs to make those same choices. And people are under the impression that they HAVE too.

Yes, giving a child junk, even in moderation, is setting them up for numerous problems. You should really look into studies, read the ingredients on your food labels and learn what they do to our bodies before saying anything. You can deny it all you want but that isnt going to make it an less true. No one was telling anyone what to do or how to parent, we gave educated advice and it is your choice what you do with that advice. Just as you have the right to give your opinion, we have every right to give ours. Anyways, i'm not going around in circles with you, your mind is made up and you are not willing to learn anything new. Do what you feel is "best" for your family. Good luck to you.
