Can babies drink cold water?
For babies older than six months, one can start to introduce water (in moderation) to a baby. Having it cold may be a novel experience for him/her. However, be careful not to give too much water to a baby as it has no nutritional value and yet would fill a baby up (which lead to less appetite for milk). Therefore, it is important that the baby is getting sufficient nutrients from milk (regardless breast milk or formula milk) and/or solids (if the baby has started on solids). Avoid flavouring the water with sugar. You can try adding a few drops of fruit juice for a sweeter taste. It is also good to first consult your doctor before introducing water (no matter at which temperature), especially if your baby have any medical conditions or dietary issues.

I do not offer cold water until my kids are older, i.e. 2 years old, as they develop phelgm easily when they were young. I know some parents offer cold fresh milk to their baby when baby turns 1 year old. It depends on individual on how comfortable you are to give cold drinks to baby.
