My kiddos have never really done the "juice" thing, we stick mostly to milk and water and of course for my 5 month old she is on breastmilk... I always wondered if I am weird for not giving my kids juice, so what do your little ones drink most of the time?  Is it weird that I don't do juice?

I dont think its weird at all.  My DD is 7 months and only gets formula.  I keep hearing we might want to give her juice but I think she is too young and I just dont think she needs it.

Our DD didnt have any bit of a juice until she was about 10 months old. Even then (and now) it is 75% water. She really doesnt want to drink plain water but i put barely any juice in there and she drinks it. She drinks all milk and one serving of the water(juice) a day. :)

My 4 month old, of cours only has breast milk, my 2year old gets water and milk at home. When we go out to eat, he gets apple juice if it comes with his meal. I dilute it at least half with water, but he still thinks it a special treat

My son drinks about 20 oz of milk per day & then he will have as much water as he wants once he's finished that.

He will occasionally have juice, but it is literally a splash of juice in a cup of water. There is no nutritional need for juice, since he gets vitamin C from fresh fruits & veggies, & I don't feel that he needs to have a bunch of sugar in his mouth for no reason.

My SO's grandmother starts an argument with me over the juice thing EVERY time I see her. I just want to strangle her. "I have 5 kids & they all drank juice all the time!" Ok, well you're youngest is over 40 yrs old, so how about mind your own business, lady!

My 3yr old daughter chooses to drink mostly water and 16-24oz of milk daily. Once in a while, when I'm drinking OJ she'd take afew sips from me but has never asked me for juices on her own. My 1yr old son only drinks milk (Step 2 Formula) and water.

We never did intentionally introduce juices or other drinks to the children. I do however offer the real fruit to them as snacks.

Flavored milk- strawberry or chocolate mostly every once in a while he'll just drink his milk white but not usually. 100% juice.
