My doctor told me not to start juice till after the first year. My friend started giving her daughter juice when she was 6 months diluted & in a bottle which the dentist says caused her to have bad teeth.... If you do give juice brush their teeth after and dont give it to them when they are going to sleep.

diluted juice is fine.  if it wasnt they wouldnt make baby apple juice.

the health department told me at nine months i think, or eight months. the lady told me that juice is one of the things that most people give too early. my daughter has been ahead on all of her foods but yogurt and egg yolk, i gave them both at 6 months. she's had a little juice mixed in her cereal here and there, but i don't give it to her regular yet.

We started Savannah (May20) on juice last week. We cut it half with water. She took to it slowly. We added juice because she started having trouble pooping when we increased the solids in her diet. So the added fluids have helped in that department.

They can start as early as 6 months but it should be diluted and given in a sippy cup instead of a bottle...

Wow I've been giving my son juice since he was about 4 months.. I used to just use it for the taste, not even a quarter of it was juice, but now he has it half and half. He's always been a little ahead of the game food-wise though, hungry little guy. But his doctor told me White Grape was the best to start with. Good luck & make sure to videotape her face!
