    Depends what tipe of juice. You can get juice designed for babys 4m+ but its expensive. My mum just used to put the tinest bit of fresh juice with water to give it a hit of flavour as my brother wouldent drink plain water.

    It's VERY bad for their teeth/health. Juice has almost as much sugar as pop (read the ingredients!) sure you can water it down around 2 years old but its much healthier to make your own juices :)

    Yea I think I read somewhere that watering fresh fruit juice down like you would cordial is better?

    I was under the impression the 'baby juice' you can buy is the worst kind? Xx

    My LO has always refused water and gagged if i offer it to him so from about 5 months he has been having watered down apple juice. I usually do about 1 part apple juice to 6 parts water. No idea if this is still quite bad but it tastes pretty much like water to me so hopefully it is ok!

    You can get no added sugar cordial but then it contains artifical sweetners which some people say is just as bad as sugar.

    Artificial sweeteners are worse than sugar. The body cannot process them...but it can process sugar UNLESS it is glucose fructose or high fructose corn syrup

    We gave jayden a sip from his cup yesterday, we used the hipp apple spring water, nothing is added to it whatsoever. Completely up to you though x

    I'm not going to bother with juice, seems pointlessly unhealthy I'd rather her get used to water! I give her cooled herbal tea though which she loves.

    I'm not giving her juice at all. Not until she's old enough to ask for it. I don't see the need.
