when did you start giving your babies juice?

do you give them regular juice but watered down or is there a special baby juice that you buy when they are ready for that?

  • Juice isn't needed. Baby gets the same liquids all through year one.; Breastmilk or fomrula.

  • I think I gave her some at about 8 months. It was regular juice, but REALLY watered down. I think it was about 80% water. She gets almost 50/50 now that she's two.

  • the doctor told me to give her an ounce before she was even 4 months old because of constipation and dehydration. overall older is better because it fills there tummys and generally is high in sugar which is where watering it down comes in handy but dd loves juice and drinks almost any kind but I also go out of my way to buy suger free and v8 fusion, she is now 2 but if you think your child is ready just start small, 1 oz of juice 2 of water and use light colored juices.

  • I started around 2 months because they had constipation. I usually cut it 2pts water to 1pt apple juice. I still cut it at least 1/2 & 1/2 and they are 3 * 4 years... Straight juice isn't good for anyone.

  • i started giving my daughter juice at about 7 months to teach her how to use a sippy cup. she wasnt interested in it when it had plain water so mixed a tiny bit of juice in her water and now she can drink anything out of a sippy cup.
