chocolate flavoured formula

I let my son have the occasional chocolate-spiked goat's milk when he was 7 or 8 or more months (ok so I can't remember exactly; it was a long time ago) but when I asked the doctor about his dry skin patches he said that was a common reaction to chocolate in babies, so then I didn't anymore. It certainly didn't make them fat (having babies made me fat; it's not a death sentence, nor is it an "epidemic". Anyone who wants to learn more about that should watch "Fat Head", a documentary in response to Morgan Spurlock. It's on netflix instant.)
I wouldn't feed a baby on chocolate-spiked formula (but then I nursed) but once they're eating solids there's nothing wrong with some pudding - it's got eggs and milk in it. Chocolate really isn't poison lol.

i didn't know about not giving chocolate until after age 2...i don't give it to my son but my family has given him all kinds of junk that i don't wish for him to have! thanks for the heads up..i will be sure to share that with anyone who wants to give him chocolate!!

Oh no, I better rush home and marinate my breasts in Hersey Syrup...HAHA. My son is 3 1/2 and till nurses. My mom let him have choc milk when she came out to visit about a month ago. it was the first time he had it. he told me he'd rather have Boo (the boob). This is right in line with all the crap that is on the lower shelves at the grocery stores. Makes me sick to my stomach.
