I'm really surprised that any nurse would tell you to give anything other than breast milk or formula to a 3 month old. Why are they suggesting this? Orange juice is too acidic. I've always heard that it's best to wait until a year to even introduce oranges (which are a million times better for you than drinking the juice) because of the acidic content.

I don't know what country you are in, but no baby needs orange juice, their tummies are not ready for it. Until they are 6 months, breast milk or formula only. But even after 6 months, fruit juice is not necessary, and because of the concentrate sugar in fruit juice, I wouldn't do it - fruit is better for them.
