babies on pills

I'm sittin' here on my couch, doing my mom's taxes, watching Frontline on channel 7 (PBS) and tonight it's about young children on drugs.
Meds.
ADHD.
ADHD misdiagnosed - now calling it bipoloar. (Formerly known as manic depressive.)

Babies. Bipolar babies.
Babies on Lithium.
I can't decide if I need to cry or throw up.

What?!! Bipolar Babies!?!

How is it possible to diagnose something like that? I thought all kids, especially babies, have crazy mood swings from one minute to the next.
