I would wait until around 6 months (assuming he's ready by then) to introduce solids and SMALL amounts of water. Juice I would wait until at least 9 months and preferably over a year... and definitely water it down at least 75 water 25 juice (can water it down even more).

Water isn't baby food honey, and it can be very dangerous for babies. At 4 months, he doesn't need anything but breast milk or formula. Give it until at least 6 months.

No I would wait till he's 6 months old to introduce any solids or water. If you are going to offer juice I would wait till at least a year but longer if you can since it's just empty calories and isn't very nutritional.
