What kind of juice do you give your baby?

My son is about to turn 8 months and I give him 2 oz of juice with 2 oz of water every couple of days. I have given him apple juice and white grape juice. What other kinds of juice can you give a baby?

  • You can give pear, apple, white grape.

    But be aware that the juice really only offers sugar. The only liquids baby really needs are breastmilk or formula, whichever you're giving.

  • Your baby doesn't need juice. All you are doing is helping the child become an early sugar addict.

  • My son loved the mixed fruit juice from Gerber.

  • I offered no juice to my infant. Most doctors say to wait as long as possible due to the reasons Gdiamante mentioned.
