... Please don't post saying that I shouldn't be giving my child juice.. and to just stick with water - I've seen that a lot on here... If you do your research... too much water for a baby/child, can actually cause seizures - too much water on the brain.

My daughter is already on regular milk... due to allergies. She's lactose intolerant, plus she can't stomach any kind of formula. We had to put her on regular milk very early.

At 8 months all they need to drink is breast milk or formula... and the occasional small amount of water if they are eating solids. And by small amount of water I'm talking an ounce or two a day at most. Juice will not be any better than a small amount of water and is much worse than just adding a bit more breast milk or formula... NOT regular milk.

Not true - about the water. We've already had a family member's son have seizures due to too much water. He was only 7 months old. He was only getting water from his formula, food, and one bottle of water a day. After they stopped giving him the bottle of water a day, and the water in his formula, all his seizures stopped. and he's completely fine now.



I talked to my doctor about it... and he said absolutely not to give a baby water. Studies show that too much water causes seizures. They get enough water from their milk/formula, food, and juice. But he didn't say which kind of juice to give my daughter. Hence why I'm asking which kinds of juice...

Don't give your 8 month old juice, give them milk. At 8 months they really need lots of milk, giving them to much water or juice is just filling up their tummies full of sugar and taking up space for regular food.



You would have to give your child a ridiculous amount of water to cause seizures, like only give them water to drink. At 8 months your child should be drinking mostly milk, homo milk. I try not to give my 3 year old to much juice...
