While I was at the grocery, my husband gave Keegan (6 months old) purple grape juice. 1/4 juice, 3/4 water. Will I be up all night with a baby who has a tummy ache?

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

I know that it is pointless to give it. I breastfeed and pumped extras were in the freezer. While I was out, he gave him 1/4 juice to keep him happy till I returned, I was on my way home. We do this with apple or white grape. I just didn't know if purple would be different than white. Keegan seems to be fine, sleeping like, well, a baby, so I suppose the purple stuff isn't any harsher on his belly.

My daughter is about the same age_ Her docter said it wouldnt hurt them but its just sugar really and zero calories so i dont give my daughter any juice yet... I am a dental assistant too and I can say that alot of times less suar is what they need to have healthy teeth come in. I dont curse sugar but its a waste of money cause it doesnt have very much calories and the sugar in juices is not as important as sugar in veggies and natural fruits made by gerber or yourself! I heard that it cant hurt but should be extreamly watered down and the baby should be starting solids before juice.

I am a first time mom and I had tons of questions for my doc at the last visit...hope i could help
