  • This is tricky, because too much water can be dangerous, to anyone. I would consult with the pedi to be safe.

  • If you breastfed, she would be getting enough.

  • Does your clinic have an after hours clinic that you can call and talk to a nurse? I always call and talk to them and they seem to always give great advise. Hope you figure this out sooner than later! :)

  • Bluespiral, not if baby was so sick she was refusing to nurse. That is not what the question is about. It's about water.

  • I'd say give her all of the water that she wants. It can't hurt her.
