  • u only use pedialyte and infalyte Is your baby is sick and the doctor says to. Juice mixed with water when baby is one month old.

  • I agree with the PP about the pedialyte and infalyte but I respectfully disagree about juice. Juice is not necessary at all and should not be offered until 6 months minimum and then not daily and it should be 50/50 with water.

  • pedialyte and infalyte only if the baby is sick with vomiting or diarrhea. My kids hate that stuff and have never taken more than 1 sip to spit out. Juice is OK in moderation after a year. Dilute with water.

  • i started giving my son juice at about 6month i only gave him a couple ounces once a day for a treat right after lunch. when he got older i put juice in his sippy cup but diluted it with water.

  • I'm sure the first answer meant to say 1 year old, not 1 month old.
