First of all water should not b given to a baby below 6 months of age.. Sheeba Vijesh Rakhi Puri suggest

Ashika Imthiyaz

hi.. no need to feed water before six nd bm S best if u feel ur baby s thirsty..

Sonika Singh

hello Poonam No water before 6months so wait ... nothing should be given to baby only breakmilk or formula milk

aradhana sharma

hi dear the age has to be 6 months before u give water, bm and FM is sufficient

Sheeba Vijesh

hi poonam, give only breastfeed ti 6 months.. water has no nutrition and so will reduce nutrition intake of baby by making her feel full...

Shirin Srivastava - Quadros

No water for babies below 6 months.. your breast milk and formula milk are water based

Rakhi Puri (beautyofmommying)

exclusively breastfeed till six months Poonam Tanwani....try sipy cups after that she would take.... mother's milk has everything she needs... thanks for the tag sonam patel

hey..poonam relax u can give water with baby spoon...but in very less quantity. because it is very hot now a days...normally it is suggested not to give water befor 6 month because their is no nutrition value and baby full tummy with water itself so baby drinks less bm this result in weekness and less weight..also excess water may damage baby kidney because still in this age kidney is not completely ready...hope you got the point to say no for water under the age of 6 month.
