  • Both my kids stated having juice at 9 months, thats the age WIC stated giving us checks for our son to get juice so we did the same when our daughter turn 9 months. I think it depends on when they start eating real food, thats when you give them the juice. Plus I'm pretty sure baby juice is the same as other juice.

  • I never bought baby juices. They are very expensive for what you get. I bought 100% juice bottles from the adult section.

  • 100% juices are just as fine for babies as gerber or other name brand baby juices. It's got the same nutrients as bitting into a fruit. lol. Just be sure they are sugar free and/or 100%. You can also water it down a little if you think it is over flavored. So... go for it :).

  • We never did "baby" juices. We always bought 100% juice and mixed it 50/50 with water. (still do that now and they're 2 and 3 years)

  • My son is 14 mos and I give him real juice except for apple. Apple gives him the runs.

  • We just use regular juice (100% real fruit juice), and mix it with water to reduce the calories.

  • When my daughter was old enough to have juice I gave her normal juice and just watered it down.
