When To Start Drinking Juice

Hi. I was just wondering at what age did everyone start giving their babies juice. Do you have to mix it with water and how much do you give at first and are there only certain flavors you should give at first? I just had my daughter for her 6 month doctor visit and I forgot to ask.

I started to give juice to my ds when he was 6mos. I would dilute it with water (half and half).. The only kinds he would drink were apple juice and cranberry juice.. He's a year old now and i still don't give him that much juice.. maybe an ounce or two per day.. mostly because he doesn't really care for it and there's just so much sugar in juice..

We don't really do juice. Never did with my first either but now at age 4.5 he does like juice boxes. I just really never saw the point in giving juice since there is so much sugar in it. We stick with water and milk. Although my 15 month old loves iced tea and soda (that was an accident-long story). He obviously doesn't get soda but I do let him sip me decaf iced tea without sugar.
