  • A couple of weeks ago. We just started solids about a month ago and started giving her water shortly after. She doesn't get much. No more than 4 oz a day, if that. She's 8 months old.

  • 7 or 8 months I think? And even then it was only an ounce or two when we were out and I knew he wasn't hungry but might be a bit thirsty. I don't care if formula/breastmilk has all the water they need nobody is going to tell me babies don't get thirsty!

  • When we started introducing a sippy cup - around 5 months. Not like they drank much, an ounce a day at most. Didn't push it til after a year when they switched to milk.

  • Around 6 months when we started the sippy cup, but it took a couple of months before he got much out of it
