No. She is too young for anything other than breastmilk or formula anyways. Juice for infants is not really recommended anyways. It can cause tooth decay, isn't healthy calories, and can lead to poor eating. If you insist on giving your baby fruit juice when she is a bit bigger, just give her a piece of fruit to chew on, it is a far better choice.

I started giving a little bit of juice at around 8 months and it was half juice half water.

I wouldn't. Of course, my son didn't even have water for the first time until he was 7 months old.

no. Start with water at around 6 months or when you introduce solids. Juice should be held off as long as possible- there's no need for the empty calories and excess sugar.

Not the best idea. Better for her to just have breastmilk or formula. Is there a specific reason or need for juice?
