i shouldn't worry too much about the juice intake, its good that baby likes lots of fluids! my son too adores his juice and like you i just use a tiny amount and water it down - had tried giving him water but he hates it; takes after his mum tho, as a baby i ended up in hosp coz i refused all fluids!
i think as long as the juice has little or no sugar and ensure regular brushing of teeth there shoulnt be a prob, only other thing is that my sis-in-law is dental nurse and she says its apparantly better if they have juice with meals and not have juice just before bedtime.
