  • I wouldn't give more than 4-6 oz of pure juice. So if you dilute that concentrate in half she can drink 8-12 oz a day. That is just my theory. I think the docs say 4 or 8 oz.? I just do half and half in a sippy cup in the am and that is all he gets for throughout the day. He doesn't even come close to finishing it because my little man is not much of a drinker. He hates the sippy cup. It makes a fun toy to throw.

  • One cup or 4-6 oz should be plenty. She doesn't need it at all. She should get enough nourishment from the breast or bottle and any food she eats. Make sure it is not the apple juice full of sugar.

  • I always did 4-6oz half and half. Do make sure you dilute it. Juice is really hard on a babies teeth. My daughter is 3 and I still do this

  • I gave maybe 4 ounce a WEEK if that. It's not neccesary.
