Is there a reason to give baby juice? My DD is five months now and at her four month appointment the doctor talked about rice cereal and level one food but never mentioned juice. I was under the impression that juice wasn't such a healthy option but maybe I am wrong. Anyone know?

my doc said it was no more nutritional than water and that she would prefer i gave him water over juice and I read that as well. Added to the fact that there is alot of sugar in juice even if its a really good brand, I am not giving it to my son yet and dont plan to until atleast a year old.

My doctor told me that I could try her with a bit of baby apple juice, but she doesn't care for it. The only kind of juice I give her now is prune juice, and only when she needs it.

My son loves apple juice, so I dilute with half water. I do this with mu oldest son too, so it won't be as sweet.

my ds is 4.. and we have been giving him juice since his first.. we still do one ounce of juice to 8 ounces of water.. I decided with my dd not to do juice at all.. just water and milk.. it is unecisary imo and she eats fruit.. I rather her get it from a natural source

oh I was told though if you do decide you should wait till 6 mos and no more than 4 ounces a day

We dont' do much juice anymore. Doc told me to give him a couple ounces a day when he was about 2-3 months old because of constipation./ but now that he's eating fruits and veggies he rarely gets juice anymore.

Rebekah's Dr said to only give it to her mixed 1/4 juice to water and only if she is constipated. To always first offer water. She loves ice water so she gets that a couple times a day.

Blaise has been getting juice since he was about 3 months old. He loves juice. And if it wasn't healthy for a baby, then they wouldn't give juice to them with WIC. And they start giving juice at 4 mths. I took Blaise to the Dr. for his 6 months shots, and the Dr. said he should be getting at least 4 oz of juice a day.
