  • I started giving my son juice when he turned 2 months old he had a hard time going to poop so they told to give him 1/2 oz. prune juice and 1/2 oz water but I would say 5 months is good that's when my sister inlaw started giving her kids juice

  • No one "needs" juice. Eating whole fruit is much better for you.
