  • Until they reach 12 months, juice is not a necessity. After that, it should be limited to 4 oz a day.

  • I get the gerber baby juice (little small bottles) 1 a day delute with water = 8 oz bottle
    Too much will give baby poops and could leave to dehydration

  • She really doesn't need any. Breastmilk or formula is her liquid.

  • no more than 4 oz a day, I also watered it down with 4oz water.

    As a PP said, they dont need it but its not going to harm her/him.

    I did the gerber juices (yogurt blend and Harvest mainly). With my twins they will mostly get the harvest blend. DS gets an ounce of apple juice with 3oz water when hes constipated.

  • oh and WIC is in the process of getting rid of the baby juice. they will be offering fruits and veggies instead. you can get on your states page and see when the changes take place
