When can newborns start having water?


until 6months except breast milk nothing should be given

Kanupriya Jain

after you start solids. for 6 months ideally babies should be only on breastfeed. but you might start solids a few days before or after her 6months birthday, start water along with it. one or two table spoons of water in a day is sufficient. unless u think it's too hot. then u can give upto 5 table spoons too


Not until u breastfeed. DO NOT give water at all.

Sonali Shivlani

When you start solids or six months whichever is earlier. It is recommended that babies take only breast milk or formula till six months of age.
