Boil water and give it to baby...try to feed baby first and then give water as water may full up baby's tummy

Sonali Shivlani

It is best not to give water with food. While we eat the stomach digests the food. This is a slow and gradual process which ensures that all nutrients are absorbed. However when we have water in between the food moves faster down the digestive tract and may not get digested optimally. Give water a few minutes after a meal.
