when can a baby start to drink water?

I breastfed my baby and it is not usually reccommended to give them water until they transition to a sippy cup but I have three children and during the summer months I always gave them water. I only gave them water though like once a week because it can upset their stomachs. I think it depends on the baby.

I started my daughter at 7 months. That is when I introduced the sippy cup and just put a little water in there since you don't want to start them on juice at such a young age. I wouldn't recommend a lot of water, but a little bit of the baby purified water is fine.
