Have just found ds3 drinking undiluted Ribena. Not sure how much he has had but certainly some. Will this do any harm do you think? Should I try to get him to drink some water to dilute it in his stomach? (No chance!)
Oh no, don't give milk, won't that make it curdle in his stomach?! How old is DS lonlymum? TBH, I wouldn't worry. He might feel sick if he drank a lot because it's very sweet but other than that it can't be dangerous can it?
Shouldnt cause any problems. In dps old job he met loads of people who were jsut moving to this country and lots of them were giving their kids undiluted ribena etc as they didnt realise you needed to add water. How they coped withthe hyperactivity I dont know . Have fun today
I think I was worried because I was thinking of undiluted juice which can give little ones diaarhoea. My ds3 has only just got over a diarrhoea bug and I didn't want his system overloaded! Also, he could have consumed quite a lot and I thought he might be sick! The hyperactivity thing didn't materialise: he still went down for his nap as usual.
