My DD is 4months and i am starting her on solids in the coming weeks and i was wondering if i needed to start giving her water with meals? I have heard from a few people that giving babys water with there food helps them to not be constipated later. But do i really need to or is she getting enough fluid from her breast milk?Answer Question

i read in a book that when you start giving them solids you should give them a little bit of water after bcuz it helps their kidneys cleanse out the waste. i think its fine if you give them just a couple sips, or you could even use breastmilk or formula i'm sure. Also, its up to you but the earlier you start them on solids the more likely they might be to getting allergies. you may want to wait atleast until 5 or 6 months.
