  • I dont give my LOs juice. If she doesnt want it, dont make her drink it! My twins are 8 months and I dont give them juice just water in their sippies or formula. The juice was giving them diarrhea all the time. Juice isnt very nutritious anyway. Its all sugar water. Buy those little netted food holder and fill em with fruit and let her naw on it and suck the juice out that way. She'll be getting Vitamin C and less sugar!

  • At 6 months they definitely don't need juice. Don't worry about it.

  • Are you giving it to her in a cup or bottle? I gave my son water in a sippy until about 10-11 mo. He showed no real interest in drinking out of a cup before that and I got tired of wasting juice.

  • If she doesn't want juice, don't push it. It's not necessary.

  • I agree with the other posters. No need for juice at 6 months.

  • My 18 month old has never had juice. It is not needed.
