Q.

PURITY JUICES

My baby is 16weekss and before we start giving her purity juices I need fo find out the following: Do they substitute formula/breast milk? Can they act as a meal for a particular time of the day? If yes, is it for the mid day or afternoon. I suspect that my baby is taking too much milk and at 14 weeks she was already 7.1kg.

Please help

She can start fruit juices at 4 months but this is not a substitute for her breast milk or formula.
