  • 10 months old and still nojuice. WAY too much sugar. The whole fruit is miles better than any juice. I don't plan on giving juice until after age two, possibly longer if I can keep other people from giving it to her.

  • Not until 3 YEARS old. Our doctor still commends us to this day. Juice is unnecessary and filled with sugar.

  • My oldest had constipation issues and so he got 50/50 apple juice & water from about 3months. But my youngest waited til he was about 6 months to start - again, only apple and 50/50. They are 3 & 4 now and we still only do 50/50, straight fruit juice can cause stomach issues, even in adults.

  • After a year. NOw at 17 months she gets it maybe once a month and then it is 25% juice and 75% water. There is no need for juice it is mostly sugar. They need real fruits and veggies.

  • We started juice, as an occasional treat (mixed with seltzer) when she was three. We introduced a sippy cup with water at nine or ten months.

  • i started w mine about 3-4 months old. 1 flavor in a 24hr period, makes it easier to pin point a allergic reaction(shld 1 occur). start w apple juice n try each single flavor there after. gl n enjoy!
