The don't need it before a year. Giving it to them before can cause water intoxication.

I would say at 7-8 months its safe to give them a bit in a sippy but again its not needed.

6 months plus. They say if you give water any earlier it can cause problems with the ability to absorb nutrients from the formula or breast milk. And also water intoxication which can cause seizures.

I did at about 5 months.....
