  • I give my son watered down orange juice, the citrus really does help with coughs and it's a lot less harsh then lemon juice in wtaer like I used to have to drink.

  • Just give it a try and see some babies can take it others can't my son and my neice cant they will have the worst diaper rash ever for weeks but I know other babies who do just fine with it so it's more of a try and if his bottom does ok then keep it going if no stop

  • I actually give my 11 month old daughter straight o.j. She does fine with it. I gave her a little of mine one day and she liked it so much I put some in her sippy cup. (just a little at first to see if she would have allergic reaction). She loves it and does good with it. I give her about 2-4 oz of it almost everyday with now.

  • He did fine with it, no reaction. But he really didn't seem to like the taste, too sour maybe. I'm gonna buy some tropic mix juice like pineapple mango orange or something
