Q:

My baby is 6 months old now. I started on solids. He is exclusively breastfeeding baby. My question is do i need to give water to drink for my baby as i started giving solid food for the digestion. Until now i didn't gave water.
If i need to give water, how much i should give and how?
thanks

Yes as you have started solids start giving water, 40 ml per day is fine. Initially baby will take less water..

Yes you have to give water to the baby. 4-5 spoons with his meals is ok.

Yes dear you can start giving water ..start with 5 tsp and you will know if the baby demands more ..
