Give him 100% juice like juicy juice. I have a 7 month old and he's been drinking juice since shortly after he was born to help with bowel movements. You start it about 50 50 juice and water and then when he is used to it go full juice. Give him maybe 1 or 2 bottles/cups a day. I give my son 2. He's on tablefood too though because he has teeth and doesn't get full enough with just babyfood. I give it to him during the day because it will make him pee a lot...if he has problems with bowel movements do apple juice it will help a lot. Other than that my son eats and drinks anything but green beans...any questions about it send me a message
