When is it ok to start giving your baby a little bit of water?

My daughter will be 4 mons on the 7th and my pediatrician said it was ok to give her 1oz of water for each month shes been born so right now she can have 4oz of water a day....she doesnt like it that much so she only ends up drinking like 1-2 oz.

My son was born March 17, he is formula fed with cereal in his bottles. We started feeding him half a jar of stage 1 baby food at dinner time. My pediatrician had us give him 2 ounces of prune juice to deal with constipation for several weeks & he loved it. Just recently I have let him try water, he seems to like it too. My concern is how much to give him, should it take the place of once of his feedings???
