    I don't with my younger lo. My older son I started offering hot chocolate occasionally when he was over 2 yrs old, for example after we had been sledding in the winter and everyone was drinking hot chocolate.

    Warm milk on occasion, especially when he has a cold/cough.

    emily has a cup of milk first thing in the morning and last thing at night (goes to bed with a bottle of milk) and through out the day she usually has diluted juice... good question! once winter sets in we will probably give her warm milk morning and evening and i havent thought of during the day yet... hot chocolate? :haha: xx

    I didn't at 15 months but now he is 2 and a half I was thinking of doing hot choc after dinner some nights as a snuggly treat. My boy's weird though, he only drinks water and occasionally milk, turns his nose up at juice, squash or tea. :wacko:

    Thomas has never had a hot drink, he always preferred his milk cold.

    I'm thinking of getting some caffeine free tea for him to try.
