I didn't think it was recommended to give juice to babies under a year. We only started after a year and then only a watered down version in the morning.


According to the American Academy of Pediatrics a baby should be exclusively breastfed (or given formula) for the first 6month of life, nothing else is needed for the baby. Juice provides no nutritional benefits and can cause harm to your baby.


"Keep in mind though you should not give juice or water to very young babies unless directed by your pediatrician." I think this goes double for breastfed babies, as constipation is rare for them.
