I give my son juice
My son is 5 months old , I've been giving him baby food since about 2 1/2 months and I just started giving him juice around 4 months. My doctor said it was fine. He's the one who told me to give it to him
I give him Gerber baby juice, at first i was doing 2oz juice 2oz water. but now I'm just giving him 4oz of juice
I guess I am confused as to the point of giving your baby juice? Isn't he drinking milk or formula regularly? What's the purpose of the juice? I don't think juice is supposed to be given until 6 months of age.. and even at that in the MOST diluted form.. and baby food that early?
Meg, I'm with you. I work for a pediatrician and they don't reccommend juice until after 6months. I don't plan on giving E any juice at all until she's a year since I too, don't see the point. BUT... everyone parents differently and every doctor is different. To each their own. :)
My son was throwing up a lot with formula I even changed formula 3 times and nothing helped. His doctor said formula is just a form of protein until he's able to eat food. He said I can start giving him baby food to see if that helps and if he can keep it down. And he likes it and is keeping it down I give him baby food twice a day and formula in between and I give him juice when he eats baby food. My son is perfectly fine and healthy and is doing well with baby food. Older doctors say one thing and younger doctors say another. I have trust and faith in my doctor. I guess every doctor has there own opinion and every doctor is different
I've done a similar schedule. As long as doc says it's okay and baby's body is alright with it, I don't see the harm.
I agree Cassie
