Sounds weird Dove but at about that age, the WIC department was telling me that I HAD to give my daughter juice every day and so many ounces per day. I ignored them because I couldn't find any juices that didn't have applies in them.

That is weird, Lacye. No one (generally speaking, of course) NEEDS juice. Heck, my son didn't even have water for the first time til he was 7 months old. All juice is is empty calories and sugar (even 100% juice). I could see giving a bit if you are having constipation issues, but otherwise all a baby needs is breast milk or formula and maybe a bit of water on occasion after 6 months.

Looks good to me. I follow almost the same schedule as you. (although mine is usually baby- led)

I wouldn't be giving an 8 month old juice on a daily basis... if at all, but otherwise... if the schedule works for you and your baby then there is nothing wrong with it.
