thanks all, i vl stop giving water to my lo

Akanksha

Jai shri dear breast milk contains water therefore it's not needed to give additional water till 6 months because the baby gets everything he or she needs for the initial 6 months through breast milk itself. if you give additional water, baby's tummy will be full and baby won't take feed properly, which will result in losing out on nutrients needed for growth n development..

Jai shri

thanks dear Akanksha

Don't give anything else other than BM. After 6 months you can give water. Additionally water before 6 months will be pressure on kidneys. Not recommended.As its summer...urine will be hot. it's normal. By urine and sweat body temperature will be maintained. Don't worry

No water for baby but if you feel his urine is hotter than usual and yellowish, you drink coconut water, have lots of watermelon​, cucumber and other summer fruits.
