  • I think he meant 4oz of diluted juice a day. For my kids I used to do 2oz water and 2oz juice. I would suggest calling the doctor and asking him or his nurse to be sure.

  • i started my son on juice when he was about 4 months which is before recomended time but i would give him like 3 parts water to 1 part juice... but everyone says thats too much water... but my son can handle it, and by 5 months he was getting 2oz water to 1/2 oz juice 1-2 times a day... and hes 9 months now and drinks 3:3 juices like 2-3 times day
