  • Your baby is WAY too young for juice; hold off for another ten months, or so.

  • Eight months is fine if you want to give it.

    As long as it's pure juice, either will work. It's still recommended that it be watered down (I did half and half).

    It's been all over the news lately that organic isn't always better, that it's not any healthier than "regular", just more expensive.

  • I always buy my kids 100% juice and then water it down 50/50. I don't always check to make sure that it's organic or not from concentrate. Juice is fine every once in a while as a treat, but I wouldn't make it a daily habit, especially not at 8 months.

  • Yes its fine to give but i would water it down and make sure not to give a lot of it!
