  • He can drink any watered down juice if you want him to drink juice. He doesn't even have to drink juice. (gerber's juice is just over priced)

  • Water. And he doesn't NEED the juice. You are doing him a disservice by feeding him juice.

  • Technically, he doesn't even need the water. formula or breastmilk. Then you can suppliment with 100% juices (doesn't have to be gerber and could even be home made!). I always water down my juice though.

  • At 8 months, your child should be having breastmilk (or formula). A little bit of water is ok, but just 3 or 4 ounces a day. Hold off on juice for a couple of years, and only as a treat.
