  • If you are going to add juice to your baby's diet, make sure you do it as you do with all new foods, wait 3-4 days until adding something new to the diet so you can watch for possible allergies.

  • Babies can handle juice/water in small amounts when they begin taking solid foods. I only give not from concentrate apple and white grape juice and I dilute with water (but some pediatricians will tell you not to dilute...especially if you have an under weight child).
