ugh i give up

So I'm an old reg on this other site called Moco. One of the girls there has a child I'd say around 2 or 3 mnths or younger. her daughters pediatrician told her to give her daughter 3 to 4 oz of water. So i step in and say NO never give her water. she can die due to water intoxication....then we get that one ignorant twat that says "i did it with my kids and theyre fine. I had to do it due to my child being constipated. blaah blaah blaah. We have old remedies that we used back in the day and our kids survived. little water will help not hurt them" O..M..G... i showed her research backing up that water is bad and she still ignores it stating it's fine just because her kids had water as babies and they're alive and well. ugh! It's like talking to a brick wall. HELLO LEARN BETTER KNOW BETTER!!!!! Research is here to helps us learn from our mistakes and to better ourselves.  NOT to blindly and ignorantly ignore it. UGH. i pray the OP doens't listen to her pedi and give her daughter water frustrated

You can't change everyone's opinions. Provide facts and if they choose to ignore it...well at least you tried. People always think their way is the best way.

and the ignorance goes on. smh. i can't believe people. a supposed midwife says water intoxication is rare in babies over 3 weeks. even if that's true why risk it?

and im really pissed off by this girl. i told her you can't listen to doctors. i had to go to 8 diff doctors and they said mydaughters lip tie wasn't a big deal. she goes on saying spit like "just cuz ur child has a deformity and got wrong advice doesnt  mean eveeryones will. get off ur high horse, ur not all knowing" no i not all knowing but if u got the facts, yes...yes u are!

All you can do is leave your advice, cite sources and walk away.  People lurk a lot so even if the OP doesn't listen to you maybe someone else will learn.

Gee, she sounds like a gem.

I guess I have a deformity too then, I've got a tongue and lip tie.  Pretty prominent too.

I'm so sorry but can someone tell me why its not safe to give a baby water? what age is water appropriate. maybe it is because I spoke to other moms, they tell me babies can have water and rice cereal. everyone is so against me disagreeing with the rice cereal but that's a whole other discussion. I was told that my baby will be dehydrated. of course I know breast milk will be all baby needs for a while. but can someone please explain why???? .sorry I'm not very educated but now I'm curious.
