Do you cut juice with water?

My doctor said I can start giving juice to my DD but when I talked to a friend she said water it down and I don't remember the doc saying that. Did he just forget to tell me?

  • Yes, I have always cut my son's juice with water. When I was "pre-mom" I was very anti-juice. Then I learned "everything in moderation, and be flexible to change" LOL. So he gets apple or white grape juice, sometimes that 100% fruit juice punch but it is always cut with water, at least 50/50. And always 100% fruit juice.

  • I have NEVER watered down juice. I don't see the point in it. But I also don't see juice as evil as others do.

  • We always water down juice at least 50/50 if not 75%water and 25%juice
    It has so much sugar in it

  • I do 1/2 and 1/2. My Dd drinks a lot a one sitting so I can giver her the recommended 4 oz of juice and make it into 6-8. Plus it cuts back the cost of juice. I only have to buy a jug every 2 weeks or so. It's not like she cares, in fact she has no idea. I have no problem with juice in general, I do think it should be given in moderation.

  • We cut it with water. I don't think juice is evil either, I just hate the amount of sugar. My DD is 3 and we still cut it with water... my 9 month old son we just started juice with.

  • I have a paper I got from WIC, that for adult juices do half water and half juice. But for kids and baby juices you dont have to. I do half and half for both tho. Ive noticed he gets chocked with too much of the juice.

  • I have always cut juice. At first it was 25% juice to 75% water, now it's about 50/50 since she is almost 18 months.

  • i always cut juice.

    brittany, baby juice is exactly the same as "adult juice". they both need to be watered down.
