    Maybe "empty" calories because no calorie water is taking the place of much needed calorie breast milk or formula?

    but... water has zero calories?
    maybe she meant adding water to the juice. my bad..
    In which case, yes, it's bad. My peditrician says children under the age of 18 months shouldn't have juice. And you/they shouldn't have it more than 3-4 times a week. Calorie wise, it's as bad as soda much of the time.
    I put a dash of lime juice ( i keep those forever bottles in my fridge) in my daughters water. They only have water and milk (Isobel - 4) and water and breast milk (Cush - 14 months)

    pedilyte makes my kids sick sucks because it works so well!!
    apparently it makes it better if they have it from a spoon but when they're sick they won't do that.

    i breast feed then at meal times i give him a little water. his dr said that was fine, but then turned around and said don't give him water cos it doesn't have calories and babies need their cals. i don't mix it with anything just give plain water. i just wasn't sure what age was appropriate to start giving him juice and how much/how may times a day.

    I saw the sippy cup your little one uses in one of the pictures you posted. My kids use the same ones it's the only one DS really likes, and DD went straight from breast to that sippy cup. It's wonderful

    Water has no calories, that is the problem. Babies bodies do not recognize food like adults do. If you fill their belly with water, the stomach signals that it is full, so the baby will not want to eat. That is why you have to consult with the pediatrician beforehand to determine what it right for your baby.
