Hi mummies, did you give water to your baby below 6 months ? Mil ask to give my 3 weeks old baby water, but I heard water isn’t good for baby below 6 months.
Till 6 months it should only be breast milk for the baby
No water before 6 months. Breastmilk or formula is sufficient before that
Not earlier than 6 months!
No i never offer water to my son when he was below 6 months .
not at all! babies below 5/6 months must not drink water.. their tummies and kidneys are still not matured yet to digest water and they might get water intoxication or not enough nutrients. There was a case where an infant died because the mother add water to her breast milk.Read more
I gave in small quantities if needed. I think you got to decide based on situation, anything check with your pd.
If you are breastfeeding then water is not necessary for baby. Else can give abt 5ml a day.
