  • If it's the Gerber baby juice, then you should not dilute it. Actually, our dr says not to dilute juice because then it's diluting the vitamins and stuff. Just don't give juice a whole lot.

  • I've always diluted my daughter's juice. Heck, I dilute mine sometimes - many are really strong! The standard measurement is no more than 6 oz. a day. Until my daughter was one, I only gave her 3 oz. of juice a day.

  • You dont have to dilute gerber juice because it is made for babies.

  • Taste it. Does it taste more like sweet water? If not 50/50, if it tastes like sweet water its already diluted and you should not dilute it anymore.

  • Motts for tots is already diluted also.

  • I dilute mine 50/50 no matter what brand. I was told by a health practitioner that the only differnce between the gerber juice and regular juice is the price and name.

  • Yeah, I fill a cup with 2 oz juice and 2 oz water and let him sip it throughout the day. The juice actually keeps him regular (he gets blocked up sometimes).
