Unless the pediatrician has recommended undiluted apple, pear or other types of fruit juice to help alleviate your baby's constipation, I personally don't think it's a great habit for your baby to develop. Juice usually doesn't hold much nutritive value in my opinion and babies don't need the added sugar.

I was concerned that if I made juice a regular part of Henry's diet, he'd want juice all the time instead of plain water or formula. Breaking the habit later on in life would've been difficult for us.
