- Too much juice can cause tooth decay, diarrhea, gas, and abdominal discomfort.
- Dilute juice for baby by combining one part juice to 10 parts boiled, cooled water.
- Avoid giving baby juice before mealtime because this causes less consumption of essential fats, minerals, vitamins and protein she needs for healthy growth. Fruit juice should be part of a meal or snack and must not be sipped throughout the day or used to soothe a fussy baby.
- Give juice in a cup—never in a feeding bottle—to prevent fruit sugars and acids which causes tooth decay from pooling around baby’s teeth.
- It is more than enough to provide baby with four to six ounces of juice (equivalent to one fruit serving) in a day.
- For babies with diarrhea, the AAP advises that only oral electrolyte solutions be used for rehydration in tandem with a normal diet.
