Who still dilutes their one year old's juice?

My son is 13 months old and I still dilute his juice. He gets 1/2 juice and 1/2 water. Does anyone else do this?

  • I do on the very rare occasion he gets it. He didn't get it at all until he was about 15 months. He's 22 months now and it's still mixed with water.

  • I have to dilute juice for my 4 yr old grandson still. If he drinks it undiluted he gets diarrhea. Some kids are really sensitive to juice for a long time.

  • I still dilute my 4 year old's juice. Just not as much as when he was a baby. You don't want to lose out on the vitamins that juice provides by diluting it too much.

  • I do, but she doesn't get it everyday. I still do this with my seven year old.

  • My daughter is 13 months old today. I have tried 100% juices with her a couple of times before, she won't drink more than two sips (diluted of course), I have never given her juice after that. She drinks organic whole milk, water and occasional her mama's booby milk. She gets a lot of fruit in her diet, so, I feel there is no need to give her juice (diluted or not) since she doesn't like the taste and it usually contains too much sugar.

  • My 4 year old chooses not to drink juice any longer.

    I still dilute juice for my 3 year old and 2 year old.

  • my little girl is 1 and i still mix her juice with water

  • I have a 28 mo old and he still gets his diluted. Even if I get the Mott's for Tots bottles, i still dilute them since I think 50% juice is still a little much. I do approx 1/4 juice to 3/4 water and he likes it just fine.
