I would absolutely not give him any juice in place of milk, solids, or water. Those are the 3 things his body needs. If he isn't taking them very well... replacing them w/ juice will make things worse for him.

If you are concerned about his calorie or fluid intake... speak to his doctor.

Watered down juice on occasion is typically not harmful, but if you are doing it because you are concerned about his calorie and fluid intake... it's really not a pattern you want to start.

Why start juice at all, it is a hard habit to break and no child needs juice. Even 100 % juice full of sugar, empty calories and hard on their teeth.

Apple is usually a preferred starting juice. Any 100% juice mixed at least 50/50 (if not more water... like 75%) w/ water... and not more than 3-4 ounces a few times a week at most. Something like orange juice might be a bit too acidic for him, but maybe not by now.

That's true too, Sarah. Juice is never needed, but can be a nice treat on rare occasion.
