Is it bad to let baby have juice and tea through a bottle
Hi All,

My daughter is 6 months old and she really struggles with a cup hardly drinks anything from a cup. But today I made her rooibos in a bottle and she drank just about everything I do put 1 teaspoon of sugar in it. Is it very bad for her to drink it from her bottle?

She doesn't have any teeth yet?

Please dont add sugar as this will harm her teeth once they appear. She should certainly still be feeding from her bottle.
