SHE GAVE MY FIVE MONTH OLD WATER!!!!

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

I'm freaking out a little bit, waiting for the pediatrician to get back from lunch so I can call.  Our housekeeper brought her 17 year old daughter with her today, and nothing out of the ordinary, I went to the bank (five minutes away) while my housekeeper watched my son.  Now we've had conversations and I'm very clear that he's EBF.  When I got back, the 17 year old had taken my son out of his swing and had given him about four ounces of water!  He seems fine but I'm so worried.  Someone tell me he's going to be fine.....I can't believe that my housekeeper allowed this to happen.  I feel like I can't trust her anymore.

Yes. Would take much more water to get water toxicity or mess up the gut flora.

I read it's not good to give tap water to babies before 6 months old...
