I wouldn't personally, it is full of artificial sweeteners which can't be good for an adult let alone a baby x

i would give him pure orange/apple juice watered down ten parts water to one part juice. This is supposed to be better for them. Hope this helps x

Shouldn't really be giving them juice at all but diluted fruit juice is better than squash according to the HV. 10ml juice to 100ml water.

He does have water too but he has always been fussy with his bottles and never takes his daily amount, infact its less than half sometimes. He has been in hospital recently and went totally off his milk and would only really have juice and water. I have to get fluids into him somehow and some days its a battle. I even dilute the baby juices you can buy and always give it by a cup. I think juice a few times a week is better than a sick, dehydrated, consitpated baby!! x

I give Blake(10 months) sugar free dilute juice a couple of times a week as he is a little pickle at not drinking water. As long as it is well watered down and baby isn't drinking it 24/7 then I imagine it is perfectly ok.
I do the same as you and always give it in a cup!! Hope that helps

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
