Before giving your child anything other then breastmilk and formula consult your doctor first. I understand it is hot out and seems logical to give a cold beverage to a child, but its not the greatest idea for an infant. At 5 weeks old my son was given a little bit of sterilized water in a bottle everyday to help relieve his digestion problems - but only AFTER i consulted with his doctor.

At 5 weeks old you shouldn't even be giving her water. Breastmilk or formula are the only things she should be having.

At 5 weeks ALL a baby should have is breast milk or properly mixed formula. I would not trust a soul that told me otherwise.

What?!? NO! You do not give a 5 wk old juice at all, and certainly not OLD juice. They should JUST be getting breast milk, or formula. Not even water.
