No. A baby doesn't need juice. Breastmilk or formula is all that should be in your baby's diet right now.

Estela,

Unless there is an issue, babies get all they need from nursing/bottles.
My daughter's pediatrician told me not to give her juice. It has too much sugar (even 100% stuff) and can pre-program them to want more in the form of soda later. It is not a healthy habit to get into.
She is now six and generally very healthy. She does get a small amount each evening, cut by at least half with water, in order to take powdered medicine. The rest of the day she has a little milk and the rest is ice water.
