I wouldnt give my baby girl anything but breast milk until she was 4mos. At 4mos I started adding cereal to the milk only because she was so demanding and my milk was low. Otherwise i would have waited til she was 6mos. As for the fruit juice, at 6 mos I mixed it in with the cereal, just to have a variety. Certain fruits have a lot of acid....blueberry "Naked" brand has a lot of vitamins and my daughter really liked it. At 9mos I started with the solids, blueberries, sweetpotatoes and avocado, even coconut or almond milk yogurt. 12mos is when their little systems are ready for whole milk, but gradually of course. Hope this helps

Still to young. Wait another month, now he should be just on milk and if it is very hot weather you can give him a bit of water

No,she is still too young.Fruit juice has fruit acids and it can hurt her stomache and cause a red bum.At four months she doesnt need any other liquid then breastmilk or formula.Good luck
