In brief: Emphatically NOT !!

Your child will have many years to have an occasional " treat " .
For something with no health benefits whatsoever, why even consider this. In addition, there may be negative heath effects such as increasing risk of cavities and intestinal distress such as gas. For a baby-- no, no , no !

In brief: When start bad habit

Carbonated beverages have zero food value, and only offer teeth-rotting sugar.
Why would you want to give that to a baby of any age? Let's put off at least some bad habits.

In brief: Soda not for babies

Babies don't need carbonated drinks.
Babies grow and thrive on breastmilk or formula. Cow milk can be given after age 1 year.
