  • IF anything at all, it'd be an ounce or two of water on a hot day. Giving juice to an infant is pointless.

  • Water. Just a little. Breastmilk or formula is still the main liquid.

  • They recommend that you don't give them anything other them formula/breastmilk.

  • I wouldn't recommend giving her anything else at that age.

    Juice will make her sick at her stomach and is pointless.

  • She really doesnt need anything else,

  • She doesn't need anything else. They get plenty hydration and nutrition from BM or formula.

  • Just some water if you insist she has something. And not alot. No more than like 2oz a day.
