Posted by Asmi

There is this 8 months old little man who refuse to drink formula milk without sugar!! Sugar is basically harmful and so we thought we could use some alternative for sugar!! What do u suggest sir?


Doctor Response: one of the reasons why i say no to sugar for babies, is because, once they get used to it..they know how to demand their ever yielding moms, the yummy sugary stuff of all kinds..they may refuse other food items no saccharins..just dont let your baby register the taste of sugar in their brain...only sugar they preferably get used to should be through fruits...
