Sheeba Vijesh

offer her water once in a while, she will drink if she wants... after few days, she may start crying or indicating that she wants water... thats how it was with my baby...

50 ml in a day. when your baby's lips get dry. or you can give five times a day. you can set timing. there is no timing for giving water. water should be boiled n  cool it then give.
