Newborns do NOT need water. Wait until they are able to use a sippy.

 Not until they are starting solids. Breast milk or formula  provides all the nutrition a baby needs for the first year of life. Even solid foods aren't a nutritional must until after their first year.

I've been told you can start giving them water at six months but make it limited. After a year, you can give them as much as you'd like.
