Breast or formula: Anerican Academy of Pediatrics recommends formula or breast milk until 12 months of age. She can have a little water in a cup in her high chair with meals. We recommend fruit as baby food at this point, then whole fruits whem she is older with more teeth. Juice in a bottle will cause cavities and is unnecessary for her.
