  • We were told to hold off until about 6 months and mix it 50/50 with water IF we decided to give it. (we did because it helped with constipation! )

  • after you can brush their teeth. Juice is full of sugar so I wouldnt want that in a baies mouth unbrushed. A baby only really needs boob juice or formula for the first 12 months. delay solids until they ask for it and you wont have constipation problems
