My doctor said my son could drink about 4 ounces of juice a day. I only offered juice and water from a sippy cup and my son loves both juice and water, although juice is his preference. Thus, I usually fill up the glass mostly with water and give him a "splash" of 100% organic juice. That way both of us are happy.

The important thing is you don't want your child to fill up on juice and then not drink milk or eat her food. My son (now 24 months) eats really well and it is only natural to give him a drink of water/juice mix with his meal. Unfortunately he doesn't love milk and so we still do milk separately from meal time. If you can get your child to drink formula/breast milk at meals I would think that would be ideal as they still need a lot of milk (whole milk starting after a year) especially until they are at least two. For my son he ate his meal best when not accompanied by milk.

Don't forget to check with your healthcare professional.

Take care,

I started giving my daughter juice (half/half) when she was about 7mo old because she was having issues BM. When you start them on solid foods, sometimes their bodies aren't use to the solid food and need a little extra liquid for hydration. I give her 4oz in the evening and it cleared up her BM problems :) She's 10 mo now.

They are not recommended to have ANY juice at that age. I do not offer anything but breastmilk and the occasional sippy of water if it is hot out.

I'm not sure of an exact amount but I always offered water and very diluted juice in between regular formula feedings, not in place of. Especially in the summer when it was hot. I only offered one bottle of juice per day as they don't really need juice if they are gettting their fruits and veggies from baby food. Also, I didn't do it with my first but I did with my second - Only offer water and juice out of a sippy cup. They make the ones with the soft spouts. It makes it a lot easier to wean from the bottle when the time comes.
