  • I add water, the only reason i give her juice is to help her poop. I started her on the cereal and she didn't poop for days, when she finally did it hurt her so badly. So I took her off of it. But I want to start her on it again, just don't know how to help her from getting constipated again.

    This is a great article all about how to help babies poop and defining exactly what constipation in babies is.

  • There is no reason at all to give a baby juice , formula or breastmilk only for the first year of life .

  • It sounds as if you started solids too early. There's no need for a baby to have solids before 6 months, and no need to supplement breastmilk or formula with any other liquids. In fact, the American Pediatric Association's guidelines say nothing but breastmilk/formula should be given for the first 6 months. Enjoy the freedom from solid food while you can! Seriously! There's no need to rush.

  • Not until they are at least 6 months, but most pediatricians agree that waiting until they are a year is much better.
