  • At 4 months, just formula. We started solids at about 5 months when she started grabbing at my utensils and cup at mealtime.

  • At 4 mo formula or breastmilk is all that should go in a bottle. Nutritionally juice has no value at all for babies.

  • When ready I did give my girls the baby juice in the baby aisle and the line of gerber product that have the yougat drinks, food, and even little kids meals. they have the ages on the bottle and jars so easy to see at what age for what product. I think I did not do milk until the doctor gave me the okay. baby cereal is usually what they start out with first.

  • When mine were that age they were on formula and did not start juice until they were closer to a year old. When I did start juice I used the Gerber or baby juice--- and then it was no more than 4 oz./day. You may want to ask your child's doctor and get their opinion on juice and when to add it.
