Q:

My lil one is 3.5 months old and completely on breastfeeding..since summer have started can i start giving water or only breastmilk is sufficient?



Divya Manoj Kumar

Water is not needed until baby is having solid food. Breast milk has all the sufficient nutrients

Priya Sood

Hi Deepa. It is best to exclusively breastfeed for 6 months

Riya Rahul Paranjpe

no need to give water.. u can give it once you will start the solid food. Breastmilk is already having water

BabyChakra

Deepa no water no honey nothing until at least 6 months. only breastfeeding is MORE THAN enough. Ensure you keep feeding on demand

Sonali Shivlani

Giving anything other than breast milk adds the possibility of infections as well as can fill the baby with low Nutrition or zero Nutrition items and this will interfere with breast feeding. Please do not give water to the baby till you start solids at around six months.
