Now that my 8mo will take water from a sippy cup would it be okay to sometimes alternative this with highly-diluted freshly squeezed fruit/veg juice, or do you think this should be left until he's a bit older?
Do you do this for your DCs and, if so, any favourite flavours?
DS refused to drink water, he pulled a horrid face, so I got some of that Heinz baby apple juice and added a tiny tiny smidgen to quite a lot of water and he drank it. I feel a bit guilty about it (I caved to a lot of pressure from my mum, I really need to practice saying "no, sod off", but that's another thread), but I think if it's very very watered down it's probably ok. And he doesn't have it daily.
I think with fruit juice you have to avoid anything too acidic, but I might be wrong there.
