  • Only if your baby is really hot, and not more than one ounce

  • Because of water intoxication I would ask my Dr first because that can be very serious. You should not give them water or water their formula down.

  • I wouldn't. Why do think he/she needs it?
    Milk will quench his/her thirst :)

  • There is no reason to give a baby that young water. Most doctors will tell you not to. Formula/Breastmilk is the only thing a small infant needs.

  • we were only told to give our son water when he was constipated and then it was only 5ml
