Q:

Hi mommies, I put up in Delhi and is in Jaipur currently....it's dead hot here and my baby is almost 5 mnths old. She is 70 percent on breastmilk.... everyone around me is suggesting to offer her water...but I am not sure whether she actually needs it or not



Satarupa B Kaur

Don't give water before 6 months of age. Breastmilk is all that the baby needs.

Bhrukuti Mistry

Breastfeed more often as it is hot so that baby is properly hydrated.. no need to give water..

Ritu Singhal

Ananya,just keep baby hydrated feeding her more frequently. Keep her in AC as much as possible! Just avoid direct breeze. Don't offer water,it fills babys tummy and curbs appetite. And you are right,bm is 80% water!
