  • I don't guess you have to, but I always do.

  • no. You may want to save your money and buy regular juice that can be diluted b/c you pay the same if not more for juice that is already diluted.

  • my son was super picky and wouldnt drink that juice diluted or not lol. he didnt do baby apples either had to be jar applesauce (even the all natural one) not sure the difference. point is if baby seems to get gassy or diarreha(sp) then dilute it some. if they are ok with it straight then go for it that way.

  • My doctor told me straight juice is too sweet and has too many calories to drink straight even if it says all natural 100% juice. She encourages me to dilute to keep her from getting too many calories and to help keep her baby teeth cleaner. I do it and she still drinks it like there is no tomorrow.

  • If hes have a hard bm, my daughters dr. also said an ounce or two or straight prune juice or the prunes baby food will relax their bowels. i know it seems like it would be too strong for their stomach but Ive done it and it really works and doesnt upset her tummy.
