How long should I keep watering down Justin's juice? He doesn't drink much but we water it down when we can. We don't stress at parties or anything. I forgot to ask at his last appoinment.

I would keep watering it down until he fights you on it. If he doesnt know the difference all the better I say. Juice even in its organic state is still usless calories. Water is best. It is better to eat an apple than drink apple juice-kwim? My son gets 1 cup of juice a day.. it is 1/4 to 1/2 juice. rest of the day it is water and we are still nursing 2 times a day-although I don't know how much he is getting since I am 8 months PG.

You can keep watering it down if you want to- it will last longer. The only juice I ever watered down was the frozen concentrate and I never noticed a difference in how my kids reacted.

I always water down Ollie's juice and will continue until he's pouring his own really.

I have an almost 5 year old & a 2 year old. I still add water when I can. They love juice & it saves money! This way they can have more & it won't cost me any extra.

If he is over a year old the recommendation is 4 oz per juice a day maximum, and there is probably no need to continue to water it down. :-)
