Seven Months? Seven-Up!
The ad copy (click on the Duke link to see the big version) says that it is "pure and wholesome" and that because they list all the ingredients, it is good for babies. Oh, and here's a little childcare tip: if you can't get the kid to drink milk, mix the milk with Seven-Up. Won't that be entrancing for you both to look at. And so healthy, too.
And they don't even talk about all the other benefits, like dental problems and an early addiction to sugar. Nothing does it like Seven-Up? No kidding.
This horrific 1955 advertisement is from the non-horrific, indeed quite wonderful Duke University.
