Hi, Anon.

Thank you for posting.

Speak to your doctor about this, but generally, you should not give your baby any juice until she or he is six months or older. Until then, they will receive all the necessary nutrients from their formula or breast milk. If your baby is younger than six months, his or her stomach isn't ready to digest a substance like a prune juice.
