Your article recommends "dilute (drinks containing artificial sweeteners) them with at least 10 parts water to one part concentrate" As an adult with choices I have to be very careful to avoid anything with Aspartame or associated sweeteners - even in things you would never think of as containing sweeteners - for example I was caught out with toothpaste recently. Never thought to study the ingredients list before using it - and it triggered a severe migraine (temporarily lose sight in one eye and acute headache). Nowadays it's usually because the manufacturers have changed the contents using a previously 'safe' sweetener to an artificial one. A baby has no choice and can't read the ingredients list!
