  • I think that might be too acidic for their tummy

  • A little wouldn't be too bad if his stomach isn't empty. But don't give him alot the acid can cause a bad diaper rash.

  • they can, but you can water it down so its not to acidic for the tummy. I give mine Tropicana with vitamin D

  • Tropicana has one that is Low Acid and No Pulp.
    I would still water it down a bit- and I wouldn't give him very much..

  • citrus fruits (and juices) aren't recommended until 12 months at least but I personally would wait much longer. There is a reason gerber doesnt make orange juice. Also babies dont NEED juice. They are better off getting those nutrients from the actual fruits

  • According to my pediatrician you can introduce citrus juices between 8-12 months, but adult juices are actually better to give than baby juices, they're not as sweet. All types need to be diluted. Baby juice: 1/4 juice to 3/4 water, Adult juice: 1/2 & 1/2.

  • I would water it down a bit. I usually give my little ones Sunny Delight or Minute Maid.
