Has anyone had any problems with Treetop brand juice recently? I got my daughter some of their juice boxes and she's been having diarrhea after she drinks the juice and it has enough time to go through her system. We already deduced that it wasn't anything she ate and she doesn't have a sensitive stomach. She's never had issues with juice or any other beverage. So this is weird that it would give her diarrhea. I'm wondering if there's something wrong with the juice itself so I wanted to know if anyone else that buys that brand had any problems with it recently?

I never said she had more than that amount of juice but whatever. It was the first time she had juice that day. She had diarrhea. She drank a different brand of juice later that day, nothing happened. It was not the amount of juice. I don't know why anyone can't understand that I know my daughter's bowel movements and what different foods do to her system and this has never happened before.



But nevermind, just don't reply to this anymore. We just stopped giving her treetop juice anyway and the problem stopped.



By the way, pediatricians are constantly changing what they say about juice. About 6 months ago they were telling me to give her a lot of juice each day. A year ago they said milk was bad for you too.

Pediatricians only recommend about a cup of juice a day. The amount of sugar in the juice or excess of some fruits can cause diarrhea. I would substitute juice for water.

Orange juice never affected her this way. She also can drink another brand of juice, and doesn't get diarrhea, in the same day. That's why I was wondering about that specific brand and if anyone has had any problems with it recently. She can drink other juice brands just fine with no problems but the Treetop ones affected her badly. It was very unusual from how her body reacts to stuff.

orange juice usually makes my daughter have diarrhea really bad , i water all her just down half and half some times the sugar in juice is to much for their little tummies to handle

It wasn't really the apple juice though, it was after she had the orange juice. Orange juice has never done that to her before. It was very unusual. Especially since she had a solid bowel movement and then the next one was a diarrhea one.

I am not sure about the brand but whenever my children have apple juice they get diarrhea. I also watch children at church and it is very common. A lot of the moms do not want their children to drink it for the same reason.
