Can I give my baby a bottle filled with juice instead of milk?

No. Only give water or milk to a baby in a bottle. If an older toddler is drinking fruit juices occasionally, give it to them in a cup. A bottle with juice or other sweet drink encourages sipping over a long time, which allows the juice to sit around the teeth and can lead to serious tooth decay.
