How Do You Introduce Juice to Your Baby?

Some tips on how to introduce juice to a baby include making sure that the baby is at least six months of age and able to drink by himself with a sippy cup. You should also supervise a baby when you first introduce juice.

Using a sippy cup instead of a bottle helps reduce the risk of tooth decay that the acid in juice can cause. When introducing juice to a baby, Gerber suggests that caregivers start with only one ounce of juice a day and do not exceed four ounces a day until the child reaches one year of age.
