  • We don't do juice - just water or milk. They get enough juice from fresh fruit.

  • That's what I was thinking too. My son will be one next month and still have not given him juice.

  • My doctor told me to start juice after he had had the certain fruit that the juice was made of. I want to say he was having fruit around 5 months, so around 5 months. Doc had me start him on veggies and cereal at 4 months.

  • At a year I started giving him juice (diluted) for a special treat about once/week.

  • Three, as an occasional treat. We are a water-drinking family.

  • Around 8 months, about 2oz per day, watered down about 3/4 water, 1/4 juice. 100% juice only (Juicy juice, apple, welch's grape). From the sippy cup only. They weren't too fond of it til they were close to a year.
