No. Fruit juice should really wait til at least a year... if ever. Solid food should wait til 6 months. Some babies are ready a little earlier, but 6 months is a good 'general' guideline to follow.

Nope. Neither. It'll mess with his/her digestive system, and babies that young don't have the swallowing mechanism for solid food. Juice will deprive baby of nutrients while filling him/her up. Doctors recommend breastmilk or formula until 6 mos.
