My 6 month old daughter acts as though she's going to die of thirst lol. I started her on her first foods over a month ago (which is going great!) and started giving her water along with it thinking that she wouldn't be getting all the hydration she needed. But it doesn't seem to matter how much I give her, she still wants more to the point that I caught her trying to drink her bath water today. She gets upset when I take her slippy cup away. I know that you're only suppose to give them a couple ounces a day. Should just let her drink as much as she wants (this considering that my husband needs to consume between 2 and 3 gallons a day to stay hydrated)?
BTW she's full on crawling already so keep that in mind also
