If I ever ask a question on here about juice all I hear is how juice is unnecessary and empty calories. Some of the responses make me feel like I should be stoned (rocks not weed). I always had juice as a kid! I loved it!!
So I give my daughter 1-2 oz of juice (diluted with water) 3-5 days a week either with a meal or as a snack (with a few crackers or something). What is so wrong with this? Am I the only mother who lets her child enjoy a little bit of juice?
Disclaimer: She never gets juice or anything else until AFTER she has nursed, so breast milk is her main source of nutrition-and will be until she's a year old.

Did I do it? Absolutely not! There is no reason for juice at that age. It is now recommended to wait until well into toddlerhood. To each her own but I decided that if there is anything that I can do to help prevent future or current problems I would do it and not giving juice is an easy one. All baby needs for the first year is breastmilk / formula.
