Juice

What is the general consensus on giving LO juice?

DS was constipated a few weeks ago and our pedi suggested offering him apple juice. He?s no longer constipated, but now he won?t drink anything besides apple juice (we use baby apple juice and dilute it 1/4 juice to 3/4 water) and milk. He refuses water.

Can too much juice be harmful? DS will drink 2 to 3 sippy cups of diluted juice a day.

Re: Juice

  • My SIL is a ped.  She limits juice for her kids to 1 cup (probably around 6 oz.) at breakfast.  So they know they can have it at that time and no other time, which minimizes battles around water or milk other times in the day.

    I use

  • I rarely offer DS juice.  I tried giving it to him while switching over to the sippy but he didnt care for it.  Should i be giving him at least a little everyday?

  • My little brother ended up with an impacted bowel, and my mom told me the Dr said it was from too much juice. He drank only juice, not real juice, but like mixed from a can sugar with colouring kind of juice, mind you, but its still been enough to scare m

  • DS drinks 8ish ounces of juice a day. I see no harm in it. There are worse things in this world. DS drinks water and milk too, mostly water.

  • My peds general rule is no juice. Way too sugary, empty calories and not good for the teeth. But, he said if actual fruits don't cut it for a constipation issue, watered down juice is fine to help. If you don't want him drinking it, wean him from it.

  • H hates juice and pedialyte.  I can't get him to tough anything that isn't water or WCM.  I don't think I'd sweat diluted juice.  Perhaps make it a bit more diluted every day until he's eventually accepting water again?

  • He won't have juice for at least another year if not longer. Just because there are worse things he could be drinking doesn't mean I want to give him something that really serves no purpose. If milk didn't have the calories, protein, and fat that he needs
