If you're using juice, make sure it's 100% fruit juice and mx it with some water to dilute it so it's not so acidic on their little tummys :o)

instead of juice why not just give water.. water is much better for anyone.. i have a 3 month old and a 15 month old.. neigher of them really drink juice. My 15 month old didnt have juice until she was a year old.. and even now she only gets juice every once and a while and it is still watered down.. just a thought

my son is 3 moths & 3 weeks old now. he drinks juice once a day & i use 2 oz of water, 1 oz of juice & warm it up & he loves it, i'm not starting him on baby food yet bc his stomach is very sensitive & the doctor said wait till 4 months. :)

My boy is just gone 3 months, after changing him to anti-reflux formula, his poo started getting alot more solid and less often... so i have been giving him every other day or so a bottle of baby juice (which is already watered down) and adding another 50% water... works a treat for him and he absolutely loves his juice!!! No adverse side effects so far so i would say go for it and see how he goes :)

I mix 2/3 apple juice to 1/3 water for my 15 week old, he loves it! I'd say if your son is keeping down solids ok, then juice would be fine, just make sure its 100% juice no sugar.

Be sure to ask your doctor because most juices are too acidic for their young digestive systems... I think that apple juice is ok at a younger age but not sure when.

My son is still breastfed only, but my sister has an older daughter who started juice at around 8 months. The dr told her to mix it with water.
