i talked to the public health in my region and they know that shes only on juice right now. if they thought she was having too much in a day im sure they would have said something. and yes i am planning on putting her on soy milk ONCE she gets better thanks.

i give my 11 month old son allens no acid extra calcium apple juice and my pedeatricion said that was perfect........no need to water it down because it has no acid( or at least vbery little acid) my pediatriction also told me that juice should not be waterd down because there is healthy things in juice and watering the juice down also waters the nutrtion down.

Quoting Courtney:

You can give her any juice water down. Does she just not like the milk or is she having a health issue with it? If it is she just does not like it, I would continue to try to get her to drink milk because it is good for her. Too much juice is not good. even watered down it is all sugar and has almost healthy value to it. you could try soy milk or something like that too instead of plain milk. My kids really like grape juice, organe juice, apple juice all watered down. My oldest even asks for water in her cup when she has juice.


yes it is a health issue and when i went to the docs for it, he said to take her off all milk products and do juice and water till everything clears up. once it does i plan to try soy milk, hoping that she will like it. for now im stuck with juices and water. i dont want people thinking that all im giving her is juice its just at the moment under doctors orders shes not to have milk.  my 3 yr old rarely has juice, she always has milk or water.

Did you know that the recommended daily allowence of juice for children 1-2 is 4 oz.? Also to much juice is horriable for those teeth or soon to be teeth, becuase even all natural juice contains natural sugars that sit on the teeth. I'm not saying your child chouldn't drink juice just limit the amount.
If there is a problem with the milk medically try goats mik or soy milk, they are just as healthy. If the child just does not like it keep offering it and limit juice to a special treat instead.



I agree. Kids don't really need juice and it is horrible for their teeth. My friends daughter has been drinking only water and milk since she was a year with maybe a juice every couple weeks for a treat. She is almost 3 now and she really doesn;t seem to mind that she only gets water. And more importantly she understands that you need to drink when you are thirsty, not just because the drink tastes like candy.

Personally I give my daughter all kinds of juice as long as it is 100% juice (usually juicy juice). But I always water it down 75%. They are only suppose to have about 6 oz  a day or less. You may also want to try soy mik with her. My daughter loves it. She likes it more than regular milk.

There are lots of milk substitutes available if your DD is having a bad reaction to cow's milk. My DD was lactose intolerant so she drank Vanilla Almond Breeze (almond milk). It has more calcium and other nutrients than cow's milk and tastes so much better (tastes like vanilla dipped almonds- yum).

If you family doesn't have a history of food allergies you can pretty much go with any juice available, But don't use anything from concentrate or with dyes/artifical flavoring. You can also do a more liquidfied fruit smoothie so that she is getting more of the nutrients from the fruit that is in the peels/flesh of the fruit that is lost in juice, or get a juicer and make your own fresh juice.

I give my son jucicy juice which is what my doctor recommended.  He also said you can give them watered down unsweetened ice tea. Go easy on the apple jucie though because it can cause them to have upset stomch.

Make sure you buy either baby juices or the boxes of natural fruit juices. And don't give her anything red unless it's natural. Red dye makes kids hyperactive and it's in alot of juices and snacks.

Go to the organic foods in the supermarket. They have fruit nectars ( kinda like fruit juice but a tad thicker)....banana nectar is a great one! My kids always loved them and they werent as harsh on there tummys and give them diaper rash like other juices.

My daughter really loves juice. She likes apple juice, pear juice, and apple cherry. All of which you can usually find in the baby section of the grocery store. So I would say they are just fine.
