  • I give mybaby some pear juice with the same amount of water in a sippy cup, butonly when she is constipated. When we go for walks, i just put a splash of the juice in the water. I don't think it's too early for juice, but they don't really NEED it, then why do you want to give it to her?

  • YES YES YES, just add a little water to it.......mine is 5 months and has about 2 oz a day of juice but in a sippy bottle, just so he gets used to the cup with handles, he plays with it mostly.....I know it will be a while b4 he drinks from a sippy cup but hey he loves it so......

  • I say no. My daughter is 16 months and we only do juice for a treat. It is so sugary with little nutrients. I would rather her eat fresh, raw fruit instead.

  • My son is 6 months && he drinks juice, but I agree with jcssfam5 above me. It should be something given very rarely considering the sugars. My husband is usually the one fillin' my baby up on sweet things.

  • At 8 mos, I'd say it's OK to give some, very diluted juice, once in a while, as a treat.

  • Yes it definitely is. Just dilute it (I do half and half). And make sure it's always 100% juice.
